Here's the procedure for takeoff:
- Advance the throttle to 100%
- Lift off at about 200 knots, but not less than that or you'll stall
- Retract your gear (press 6) and pitch up until about half an inch of ground is visible above the glareshield
- Level off at 2000 feet (or whatever altitude you want). Note that the plane is a little shaky at less than about 480 feet. They don't call this thing the "Wobblin' Goblin" for nothing!
