Welcome to the new Eagler's Forum

     This is the consummate answer to the "neo" Yahoo Groups.  We want to have everything available here that Yahoo had to offer us and more.  This will entail a learning curve for most of us, especially the Staff, and will definitely take time to get everything implemented.

     Our goal is to enhance the Eagler's community by keeping all that was good with the mailing list at Yahoo, and doing away with most of the bad.  There will be growing pains for sure, so bear with us until we get this thing off the ground and out of the local pattern.

To me this vid is what the Legal Eagle is all about...stick, rudder, eyeball and seat of the pants. Not a perfect pattern and landing but close enough to encourage the motivated pilot to keep trying for it...even if he never achieves it. This one a crude touchdown attempt; we try for rollers; and slightly offcenter the centerline. Other than that pretty good but we gotta be better. This the 4th landing of the season so will get better by the end of summer but probably will never get a really perfect pattern and touchdown. That's the challenge and the Legal Eagle is perfect for it. For most of us mortals.
Have fun

Very gentle little plane. Stalls around 36-38, so it is very forgiving.
