“Flying is like life. Both require proper perspective and planning. Flying requires faith, focus, consistency, skill, awareness of one’s surroundings, a positive attitude and courage during setbacks. It’s also good to remember in life and flight that although sometimes the day appears gloomy, from the higher perspective, the sun is always shining and there’s always a clear path to the destination. It’s all about altitude, attitude and the route you choose to take.”
– Anthony Dohrmann

Life in the Air, Getting to the Ground

Most difficult landing: Engine out over Ft Lauderdale in a single-engine Mooney 201 landing on-airport after declaring an emergency.

Second most challenging landing: Racing ahead of a sudden sandstorm rolling in from north Tucson, which hit the aircraft only 10 feet off the runway surface. The abrupt wind sheer caused me to go around in diminishing visibility to re-approach for landing on an alternative runway.

Third most challenging landing: In a Beechcraft Duke B60 on a cross-country back to New Mexico in severe weather. Storms rose so quickly from so many directions that two alternative fuel stops were below minimums for landing, and we were compressed in dangerous conditions in the middle.

Icing in a severe thunderstorm, and low on fuel, we had to stretch the distance with a headwind from Alabama to Las Cruces, New Mexico. We virtually exhausted our reserves and landed with less than 15 minutes of fuel in the tanks.
