Reserve! Which one?

Recommended Posts

As with other safety gear, tell us what crash you're going to have and then we can make recommendations.

What would be the benefit of a small reserve to a relatively new pilot?

Go for a big one. If you can mount it on your lap with a double handle (where you can see it and reach it more easily), why wouldn't you?

As you gain experience and confidence, you may decide that your reserve is too much weight, or that a front mount doesn't leave room for instruments, lunch, etc. Until then, I would suggest that you err on the side of caution.
