Dave,

I assumed they are using their Duke package, when I google Rocket Engineering I got more hits with you in them than the owner of the company. You should get a discount for marketing!

(side note) Tony, you moved to the 120 from the CRJ..?
It'll build up your arms..<G>




I certainly did circulate their material, but like to think I tempered it with a third party view to some extent <g>

Like all paper planes, it looks good. Of course, there are some things one should know. I need to e-mail them again and get an update, but they were trying to move the top of the green arc up to 206 to 207 knots so the plane could legally cruise near 300 TAS at FL250. I spoke with someone on a standards committee that offered that might be difficult. If Rocket doesn't get that, high speed cruise would certainly be slower. Of course, high speed cruise is more to show off. Long range cruise would be more practical.

They've had a couple issues that the Duke guys are waiting to have addressed. Any time one goes to a boutique with a STC, they have to wonder about service after the sale. Rocket has a great reputation, but servicing a small number of conversions might not get top priority. Then, one would have to get the plane back up to Washington. They've raised the price from what I was first told.

Anyway, for someone like me with a nice P-Baron, it's interesting. Like everything: there are pros and cons.

Best,

Dave
