What Rich was sayin is that "Flight Levels" in other parts of the world begin much lower than FL180. For instance, in France and Germany the first Flight Level could be FL60 (6000'). In the UK it could be FL70.

I think Greg was shooting for our Flight Levels which as you indicated, begin at FL180.

Don't even have to go that far away. The Flight Levels start at 6,000' over the Bahamas.

Been at FL 190 in my -10, the DA was 20,800?. She had more if I had wanted to milk her for higher.

Dynon EFIS? That's more information displayed than a B757 or B767...

Need O2 at 10,000-12,000 feet more than 30 min or above 12,000. FL190 would be a must... Hypoxia makes your thinking dull and feel slightly euphoric... then incapacitated. Finger nails turn blue. Nothing to screw around with.

What O2 system are people using the most? Mountain High pulse demand looks like the way to go.

In class A airspace (above FL180) requirement is: IFR flight plan, two way com, transponder mode C + ADS-B. Check.

I believe you?re quoting the regulations for commercial ops. For part 91 O2 rules are above 12,500? (PA) more then 30 minutes, any time above 14,000? (PA). Not that being a little conservative isn?t a good idea.

Cannulae are not allowed above 18000'. Full mask is required by the FAA.

Default and...

...and Hypoxia affects each individual differently.

It is an eye opening experience to see what happens to yourself...

Once I get my oxygen tank filled, I am intending on testing my new toy to see how high and what kind of performance I can get up there.

I am a bit surprised by the oil temp and other temp unless this picture was taken right after the climb was completed.
