What's the point of T&G's, Eddie? I see some value with an Instructor onboard, but not solo. Why not come to a full stop and complete the landing process?
I think in my case it's an example of the Law of Primacy.
I learned them that way in the beginning, so they will likely always seem natural to me.
If I'm feeling rusty, I sometimes go out and shoot a few touch and goes at Copperhill. Most natural thing in the world for me, with no perceived additional risk*.
I guess after each landing I could turn around, back taxi and then go from there. Just seems like a lot of extra motion - and time - when just taking off again is so easy.
But I understand the argument against, and would encourage pilots to do what they feel most comfortable with.
I do understand the rationale for full stops in taildraggers. Not so much for the night landings.
*Admittedly, I'm a proponent of nearly always using the full length of the runway, and that's something I give up on a touch and go. Then again, I try to land very close to the numbers, and don't have to begin the takeoff roll from a standstill, so I think the net difference in the point of rotation is pretty small.
