A nice curving approach seems to work best for my home strip (thanks to F. E. Potts' Guide to Bush Flying).

This avoids having to slam-dunk it over a tree-line. It also means that in the event of power loss, I only have to worry about avoiding the cows.

Juan, it's only 600ft, with fences at both ends and no option for a go-around. Strictly STOL, I'm afraid. Can hook up at South Lakeland somethime, though.
