You really need to replace those piston rings, David. You seem to be burning quite a bit of oil...

Actually, I wasn't there, so can't tell you. This is the first time in years that I've missed a Sentimental Journey breakfast, but I was in Beijing last week, in Berlin the week before, am now in California, and won't be back on the airport until Friday. (Can you spell Jetlag?)

oh, that's easy. Figure it's 10,000 nautical miles. At 100 kts cruise, that's 100 hours. 5 GPH means 1 jerry can per hour, so we're talking 100 cans.

Probably less fuel that the airliner burned to get you there...but not as fast. :wink:

IIRC there was a young aerobatic pilot who was violated by the FAA for making a low pass and pull up with smoke on. The FAA inspector deemed it was aerobatic flight and wrote the violation.

Those pictures were during a take off with smoke.

From 91.303:


For the purposes of this section, aerobatic flight means an intentional maneuver involving an abrupt change in an aircraft's attitude, an abnormal attitude, or abnormal acceleration, not necessary for normal flight.



Vague enough for you?

I think they were out to get the person I mentioned, but catch an inspector having a bad day and who know what could happen.
