This is a demonstration of a Soft Field Takeoff and a Soft Field Landing in a C-172 and C-182.

Soft field takeoffs and landings are my favorite types of takeoffs and landings, because they are, in my opinion, the most challenging ones (at least for the planes that I fly).

I love rolling down the runway with the nose wheel being of the ground for a few seconds before lift-off (it always reminds me of 737's and other bigger planes taking off), maintaining the centerline using the rudder only (not the nose wheel), and I love pitching down the nose right after lift-off to increase the airspeed before resuming the climb, although the first few times you do that it can be un-nerving.

Just remeber to put in smooth controls and to keep that nose wheel off the ground as long as possible.

And practice, poractice, practice...
..and enjoy,,,
