Chris and Thomas-thanks for add-ons to the ones I missed! Trust you all are well and getting some flying in. Thomas is definitely right-it takes a tug to her into ground effect. And lots of right rudder for sure. As Chris said, ease the throttle in and get the sense of how much rudder you need to keep her straight is the way to do it.
Brent-enjoy the cross country. Great way to build some time and do what the 200’s do best- which is to go!
