Skylor my friend...my post was tongue-in-cheek, thatís why I put a smiley face in it. I certainly donít advocate using a split-s to return to the runway! But on a more serious note, if youíre trying to work out high and low key numbers as targets for an engine out approach, I would advise bumping them up a bit and giving yourself a long enough final so that you can kill any extra altitude with a slip or gentle s turns. You can fix being a little high (within reason), but if you error on the low side, there isnít a lot you can do to fix it!
