Re: What Price Speed?

Ryszard Zadow

I don’t complain about the price of gas, I just go fly.  Avgas is the cheapest component of airplane ownership. 😁

$9.50 a gallon at ENJB. Makes you almost want to go on just one engine.

Just wanted to point people to a good article (with 100LL prices now around $7/gal) by Mike Busch in AOPA Pilot Magazine, August, 2022, page 84, about flying for maximum efficiency. He discusses best endurance speed, best L/D speed, and Carson speed, with some graphs. He also debunks (again) a few OWT's, of which there seem to be many in aviation.

Highly recommend it.
