measures. Flying at low level is for ag pilots and others who have operational reasons to do so and are trained for the hazards. Average recreational pilot has no business being there. Power lines are invisible from an a/c. An engine
failure leaves you with little options where to land. A previous owner of one a/c I owned killed himself that way. If you are a betting man and you want to bet that your single engine
will keep going with the other option of a fatal air crash, then you don't value your life much.
