ATF works perfectly, wont catch on fire, like 5606 does. Have your wife pick you up some.
What happens when ATF is mixed with 5606 away from home at a remote airfield?

Iíll bite, why?
I try to make every landing appropriate for the conditions required and try to not use my brakes if I donít need to, or use them gently as possible. I get plenty of practice with short fields as I live on one, so 1000í is no problem but.....
Old tail dragger hold over perhaps, but I just put my third set of pads on at 800 hours. 400 hours a set, mo betta.
