A wise and highly experienced pilot (you may have heard of him - Wayne Handley) once told me that that big lever in your left hand is called an "eraser". If you don't like something you see when near the ground - ERASE IT.

Hi, I guess the most usefull tip I received when I was just learning how to land a Pitts was - "If you mess up the landing don't try to fix it - just go around." This realization helped my confidence a lot when I was learning as I realized hey - If I bounced the landing, if everything wasn't just right - just go around. No problem.No big deal. You don't really HAVE to land this time. In a few seconds one can try again. I knew I would eventually be able to get it on the ground OK. Mike Torbett Pitts S-2A
