Re: Turbine P-Baron



Of course, high speed cruise is more to show off. Long range cruise would be more practical.

In the PT6 applications I've flown, high-speed cruise was the most economical once you took the (hours-based) engine reserves into account. Of course with $6 Jet-A that may be changing.



Did you look at the fuel flow amounts Darwin provided? In light of that, and the cost of fuel, why would high speed cruise be more economical? Is it because of engine time replacements?
I don't have any time behind -21s. The turbine time I do have was courtesy of Uncle Sam.
