Precision slow speed flight in challenging conditions need no longer be a matter of 'seat of the pants' flying.
Flying with the LRI is the bush pilot's art by instrumentation. During rotation the LRI confirms sufficient lift reserve for liftoff. Climbing out with the LRI needle just above the red sector allows a pilot to achieve high performance takeoffs at maximum angle of climb. Reference to the LRI will also help ensure consistent high performance landings with the shortest rollouts - especially helpful when flying into short airstrips.
