Re: Turbine P-Baron

Dave,

That's a huge difference in FF. When I asked whether it was "both", I guess it's always a tradeoff between TAS and FF. For instance, at 10,000 ft, if FF was 440 PPH, I imagine that TAS would be in the 200-220 range. So, as one increases altitude, either TAS goes up, FF goes down, or both, depending on your power settings.

IIRC, the difference is much more severe for a turbofan engine vs a turboprop. I don't really understand the theory behind that, but is that correct?
