Just follow the instructions in the POH. Thanks for your efforts OME. What about home-builts? I understand the need for a standard way of doing things, but it doesn’t take into account those of us who “think differently.” If I do things a different way and achieve a satisfactory result, why not? I once got into a heated argument with a good friend. After she explained something in terms that made sense to her, I processed her words and explained it back to her in terms that made sense to me (and others nearby). She became progressively more enraged that I couldn’t use her exact wording and could not accept my need to express the concept in any other terms. (I discovered later that our birthdays are close; maybe a factor.) 1 hour ago, old man emu said: Here's something to think about. If your bladder can take it, and you decide to fly until you've only got your 45 minutes' reserve left in the tanks when you land, it might be possible that the W&B is outside the envelope. Who calculated W&B at the end of a flight? I believe it’s now only 30 minutes, but good point. Some aeroplane’s have their fuel tanks far from the CoG. Regarding bladder range, I’ve learned not to drink green tea before flying; it goes through me in about fifteen minutes! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
