I like taking off, deicing the aircraft and landing.
Taking off from the runway makes me feel good. I like the force I feel and the plane really moves fast when compared to other vehicles. I cannot get that feeling when I am driving.
Deicing is also good. You can only try this when your flight is the first one of the day in cold area like Canada and Russia. During deicing, you will hot water and
detergent flowing on the plane. Dirts are coming off as well as the paint. Last time, I tried CanJET and the paint of the top of the aircraft got off, just like the Northwest Dc9-10 aircraft at YWG.
Landing is very important too. I like smooth landing. If the landing is not smooth, with thunder storm or some other weather related issue, the feeling would be bad.
During my last visit to YQT, since their runway is so short, my CanJET 737-200 aircraft almost got out of the runway. It can only stop just before the runway ends. It's a good experience for me. I am wondering how Royal Aviation's A310 can ever fly to YQT. They may get problem with their runway too.
