On my last big trip, I installed the Koger shade, without it I would have got very sun burnt.

205kts ground speed, wow, I hope to see that one day.

Happy flying to you both.
It's still cold up here. The sun feels great, bring it on. but there were times I wanted some shade. Thinking about using some cling shades, so I can move them around.

during the race I saw GS of 215kts for several miles, peak was 218kts. I was WOT 2600rpm 189kts TAS at the time. PAid for it at the turn GS dropped to ~150kts.
