Flying 240 Miles In 22 Minutes
Published – 06/05/2021 3:00 am
Today I am flying 242 miles north to Winston-Salem.
This trip is one of many because I’ve been working on an aviation project there. I will announce what this is about soon so please stay tuned.
This was a relatively smooth flight. Cool air at 9,500 ft. Air traffic control was also great and helped out. For the aircraft performance, I was cruising at 148 kts (170 mph) true airspeed which gave me about 138 kts (159 mph) ground speed. 129 kts (148 mph) indicated airspeed. All while burning only 7.3 gallons of fuel per hour.
The Sling TSi is a great performing an economical machine. Hope you tag along and enjoy the flight.
See you at 9,500.
