Mike Lents, Lead Flight Instructor, shares all he knows about making a safe and effective Soft-Field Approach and Landing on soft or rough surfaces. Mike's information parallels the procedures set forth by the UND Aerospace Warrior Standardization manual and will guide the pilot from initial approach to final touchdown.
