Welcome to the STALLION cockpit
We are flying in the Super Stallion. The KLN80 GPS shows a ground speed of 211 kts with no head or tail wind. We are in a hurry and our Continental IO-550 G is turning 2,700 rpm. At 2,400 rpm normal ground speed at 12,500 ft is 193 kts while burning 14 gallons per hour. After climb we have 160 gallons of fuel in the wings. With this fuel and 20 gallons reserve we travel 2,200 statute miles. Read the Stallion flight from California to Sun n' Fun, Florida as reported by Keith Beveridge. Click here to download story.
