Default 220kts

I got 220kts straight and level, but the only pic I took that had the VSI included was still with a 100fpm climb. I'm happy to claim 215kts in a climb...

How about 210 knots groundspeed in a steady 1080 fpm climb?

Yesterday, south of St Louis:



And groundspeed when level:

Dave, maybe I should knock it off. I came into our home town from Ft. Collins last week and they were using 03R. I was pushing 200 miles per hour approaching the class Delta. The trainee seemed flustered and told me I was NOT going to get traffic advisories outside Delta.
There was only one student on base for the right. Just seemed like good use of avgas to get home sooner.
