Uncontrolled airports are the norm for many GA pilots, but they do not come without risks, particularly when aircraft start getting heavier and moving faster. We've seen the dangers described in this article many times on the mountain trip flying out of Truckee. And it's often the most experienced guys flying jets who cause the biggest problems. They get off the CTAF to call center for an IFR clearance release, and once they get it, they just jam the throttles forward with no awareness of the piston aircraft on the intersecting runway or the glider over their heads. Part of what's so great about IFR flying is that you can really pass the buck on a lot of the hard situational awareness that comes with VFR flying, but bringing that attitude to a non-towered airport is a recipe for disaster.
