Default KELLI GIRL joins the 200 Kt Club

I flew KELLI GIRL down south to Austin Exec to pick up Kelli and bring her home.



On the solo leg to Austin, I had a huge tailwind, rolling my ground speed over the 200 knot mark. BooYah!!



Sadly, the return trip flew us directly into that same wind, slowing us to a 114 Kt crawl.

Welcome to the club with Kelli Girl Scroll. And good to see Kelli is not a figment of your imagination, unlike Hula.

Do I detect a slight dive on the VSI on that 200 kt picture?

Default Good catch Paul

You still got me beat Scroll. I'm in the zero knot club until it warms up here.

The vertical speed bug is set to -500fpm but not seeing any vertical speed indicated. Seems legit to me.

I use 500 FPM for autopilot climbs/descents. It's easy on the CHTs while making climb/descent point range computations easier. Then I can dial in vertical rate adjustments based on the displayed level-out arc.

Thank Doug Reeves for that one. He took the photo. I was just in the right chunk of airspace at the right time.
