You keep your cool even when itโ€™s obvious that youโ€™re right on the edge. You never just โ€œgo for itโ€ and go around even if the tailwind increases 1mph over limit. Definitely what has kept you safe and alive. You must love what you do because thereโ€™s a lot of mainline carriers out there that would be lucky to have you. Keep up the good work and stay safe.

3:36 is it just me, or does the air pressure in that left side gear tire look low? Or maybe they're aired a little low for that "rustic" strip at Aibai.

The change in weather that happens, the short and slippery runway, and winds that change direction and speed by the minute. With this pilot's experience and confidence because he knows this airfield, he makes it look easier than it looks, and I was stressed watching it. Lots of factors to decide to commit to it or abort.

Nice work dude...wow thought you nearly got bogged just before shutdown...I operate diggers, so comin home n watching u do that is super relaxing, informative and entertaining, 110 x better than anything on TV :D Iโ€™d love to experience that landing with you at the controls!

Very cool and daring. I'm a professional pilot and I respect the heck out of you. Very calm and collected. I wouldn't do it now but in my early years perhaps I would. You say you're a missionary pilot so your cause is I'm sure taking the risks you are. Very well done. Please be safe and God bless you. Couldn't quite figure out where you're at.

10,000 hrs military...mostly jet, but couple of 1000 in C-123. Short unimproved strips always exciting...especially when solo. Bush pilots often have remarkable mechanical pilot skills, and enough brains to stay alive in troublesome circumstances. Very real portrayal of a very busy hop into a challenging environmental. Notice the use of checklists...always a good sign.

The FAA should prohibit these USposts cockpit vids, before a serious accident happens. Self-absorption, vanity and hubris are dangerous conditions to be stimulated while piloting an airplane, and that's just what those GoPro cameras do.

Hi, Ryan, you have just landed at Gorlovka, you had me back 62years when my wife Colleen and I lived and worked with the PNG Health department ,posted to Goroka for several months and other centres I flew as a passenger from there several days per week,exciting and frequently scary. The biggest thrill was the approach to the gravel strip at Kundiawa and wondering if the wind would give ur sufficient lift to clear the threshold.It always did, we are still here with so many great memories. I had to fly a great deal no roads only the corrugated Highlands Highway. My favourite trip was down to Kundiawa in my favourite aeroplane the Twin Otter but most trips were in Various Cessnas,Barons Aztecs or the 336 where the fuel gauge was a 9inch stick more reliable than electric dials my goodness you have taken me right back, Ivetried to write down some of these times and now at 85 the memories are very very important to me and are more vivid than anything that happened to me yesterday. Keep it up Ilove them. I used to know several pilots of the Mission Aviation Felloewship especially the chap who lived with the Fore people and cured the outbreak of Kuru my first ever encounter with Prion disease which we all know of now. I would dearly love to hear from you,,your plane now has a working fuel gauge but the view through the windscreen looks the same Best wishes Gordon McCammond.

PNG flying is technically very difficult flying, but a socially critical service, and the young pilots who do it are usually desperate to get home and fly for a major, (see other videos where they're almost begging to get back to the UK/EU). It does seem to attract its fair share of 'last resort' pilots who are either older and love flying, or younger, but not up to standard of the 1st world cadets/trainees. The accident rate in this mountain PNG flying is huge, although it's hard to say whether it's the fault of the pilots who couldn't get a job elsewhere, or the weather/geography of the place which is not easy to manage.
