Ok, here's my in-flight selfie! From one of my first flights in the 8.

The more I fly this thing the more I love flying this thing!

My camera malfunction turned into a selfie.

Default Right-side UP Downunder

John,
The great pic of you and Mt Hood prompted me to re-post mine.
Unlike yours, being Downunder, my head is pointing 'UP' in the USA sense.

Pete.

Default How cold, how fast, and how did the (presumably non-turbocharged)engine run?

Saw your post and wondered how cold it was at 15 grand, how fast did you see on GS and airspeed indicator, and how was the (what brand/size/options?) engine running at that altitude (oil temperature, rpm, fuel flow, EGT, CHT)?

Just curious if and when I try the same cruise altitude.

Thanks,

Default 15000 ft

15000 was really a non issue other than sucking oxygen. I have an RV7A with an Aerosport IO 360 and dual Lightspeeds, on the panel a single Skyview and a Garmin GDU370. It is approved for IFR. As far as temps and pressures not much out of the normal. I do have an oil cooler shutter that works very well and is highly recommended.

On this particular trip coming back from the west coast I was trueing out at 155kts and grounding at about 185kts. On our next trip over the Rockies we came home with a GS of 205 knots at 13000 ft. Not too shabby.

As far as flying high goes, the highest I've gone is 18,000 ft. The last couple of thousand was rather slow and it sort of hangs there. Interesting but not something todo every day.
