Steep Turn Base to Final

What I said was that if I were an airspeed following fool,

So, first you said I was "an accident waiting to happen", then you said I was stupid ("Flying airspeed in the traffic pattern is stupid."), and now you're calling me a fool.  What's more, you're calling all of my instructors through the years stupid fools as well.  

Your message is getting lost because you've turned into a condescending ass.

Parts of this video may be relevant to this discussion...mostly the danger of the skidded turn when low and slow:

 

Mike avoids this known danger by being low and fast! He'll not land like that where I'm based, 3200' with open approaches and a drop to the river at one end. Nor where I earned my license, bought my Mooney and was based for seven years, 3000' with trees at both ends. It should work well for him if he stays at mile-long or longer, wide runways. But he gives up a lot of utility, like my visit to Mom & Dad, 2770 x 30, landing on rolling hills towards the church at the end. If he's not careful, he'll give up more than that.

Wish I could reply without the video, but my iPad crashes every time I try to delete it . . .

God, finally. I was wondering when Spacers' Law would take hold. Please, someone, send in the fat chicks!

To misquote (only slightly) an all-time great aviation film, The Bridges At Toko Ri:

"Where do we get such (wo)men?"

And KEEP them, by the way...I've NO interest.

Now excuse me, I must vomit.

The skidding turn video is an awesome explanation that lays out the simple fact: The lack of understanding of angle of attack and basic aerodynamics causes fear of bank, when really it should be fear of critical AoA, and that fear causes the skidding turn - which "is a killer." No recovery possible...even Yeager or Hoover can't save that one...but they avoided it!!

LOC-I is stall. ONLY cause of stall? Exceeding critical AoA. This is out of slide deck posted earlier (thank you). These objective presenters effectively present root message (at least for me) of this thread, cutting through the noise: Be aware of your AoA when maneuvering, because not being aware of it is a greater threat to your life than airspeed -- OR bank angle.

And before the dentist jumps all over with criticism, I strive to stay coordinated on the rudders during all phases of flight so not something I even considered worth mentioning. And yes, the angle of attack probe is mounted on one wing but so is the airspeed! So there's no difference there buddy. No difference!

How reliable is your gadget in a slip vs a skid? Any difference?
