Re: What comes after a DA40?

Antonie,

You are correct. I was thinking of the 500.
I have shot approaches in the Aerostar at 180 KIAS to the final approach marker inline to commercial jets. The plane is just awesome, and ATC has loved the flexibility to slip me in. I miss it.... just not the bills. :D

Re: Pre purchase examination scope and detail for DA42 TDI

Re: DA 62 Best Glide Indicated Speed & Glide Ratio

The best L/D ratio is normally around blue line. This also generally matches best glide speed.

Re: Hm, wonder what this would mean?

No, it has been confirmed on avweb and AOPA. 3600lbs was the stated number. Tim Both infallible press sources... I'm going to contain my excitement until I hear it directly from the FAA. There is nothing light or sporty about 3600 pounds so that has me skeptical. Oh, I think the press is likely cor...

Re: What comes after a DA40?

Antoine, Likely the Extra 400 is cheaper, especially being experimental. If your friend is willing, he should spend the time to make sure the engines are setup for LOP. Because he can then run at roughly 45% in the mid 20s around 200 KTAS for roughly 12 GPH per engine. With the aux tank, I could &qu...
