Agree with John, my fuel pump is always on below 1K feet regardless of it being in phase 1 or just another flight. It costs us nothing to run the pump and if it's needed, it's already on.
Good luck Cal, wish you the best! Hope to make it out to Montana next year and experience the beautify it offers pilots.
