I’m sure this has been discussed, but I can’t find it. I have two CFIs for partners in the Sundowner and they have different opinions on using flaps for short and soft field takeoffs. You CFIs out there, do you teach using flaps for short and soft field takeoffs? If so, how much flap? Do you dump flaps on a short field landing or use flap drag to slow down?
For the rest of us, do you use flaps for short or soft field takeoffs? How about the Mousevator?
