I never did that in my -6, hmmmm. I have several times in my Tcraft but it's a lot easier.

Vman, just got home from my -6 Albuquerque to Phoenix to Venice trip via Dallas. Great tailwinds. Stop when you get in the neighborhood. I still have those -6 parts for your friend.

Default Special safety equipment for flying in reverse

Vlad, what does FAA require for reverse flight? Backup lights? Side view mirrors? Backup camera system? A backup radar system? You've really expanded the envelope and aviation may not be the same again. John

So far as I know, you only need reversible Nav lights. Don't the FAR's accept the original taillight as the new landing light, and vice versa?

As long as they don't require those annoying backup beepers they use on garbage trucks I'm happy.
