They tend to like Austin. This is the third time I've seen a thread with them doing touch and gos there.
We lost the best EC-135 we had (after they consolidated them and it left our base), to a pilot that screwed up a wet runway landing. Full crew on board, he was shooting touch and gos with an occasional full stop, in the rain. The last full stop, he floated it, touched down about halfway down the runway, and attempted to stop.
Went off the end of the runway, hit a hill that ripped the gear off, the plane slams to the ground, and breaks the backbone.
