I Love Bravo Speed

Recommended Posts

Hey ya'll, just wanted to share yesterday's flight. Left TX and 2.9 later I was in AL. GS around 250 and TAS between 198-200. Truly an awesome cross country plane! a999a80561dcef88bb3cf97dcdc3eb9c.jpg05b1166440f5d10bb8da73b9f09a6538.jpg

I figure I'd post what the trip going West was like...slow! Left AL and 4.9 later I was back in TX. Set it for long range cruise 27/2200 and had an hour left in the tanks. With the strong headwinds, the fuel way too tight for my liking at 29/2400. The power difference added 45 min of reserve.

The Bravo can go a long ways non-stop!0e2d90d007fa8162d58d2e1b9eba6675.jpg7d5e986682a53e57ab6074c20f62eeb8.jpg

Fuel burn stays pretty much the same at any given alt since it is Turboed. To go non-stop with that headwind, I flew 4,500' at 27"/2200 which gave me around 160TAS at 15gph.

My normal cruise setting is 29"/2400 which gives me between 180-200TAS in the high teens to low FLs. I usually see 195-200 above FL200. Fuel flow at that alt is 18.5-19 gph 100 degrees ROP.
