My RV-14 taildragger might not have the absolute best short field performance, I usually need 1,000' runway length to safely land it. But I don't know of many taildraggers who can beat it's cruise speed, This is how fast my Vans RV-14 cruises, both at full power and also at economy, 8 gph, cruise. I recorded max and economy cruie speeds at every VFR cruising altitude up to 17,500' ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations, Missouri Pilots! We made it to 1,000 members in our Facebook Group! That's quite an accomplishment and I'm both excited and proud to be a part of this engaged and active community supporting General Aviation in the state! I wonder how long it will take to get to 2,000? The challenge is on!
I promised that when we hit 1,000 I'd give someone a 1-year membership (or renewal) to the "real" Missouri Pilots Association. Here's the process we'll follow. I'll acquire the entire list of members from the Administrator and put them in a spreadsheet. I'll then randomize the order so they're not in the same sequence that they joined the Group. Then, I'll ask Siri "give me a random number between 0 and 1,000." I'll find Siri's random number as the row on the spreadsheet and that person will be selected to receive the membership. If the row happens to be a business or other non-human entity I'll repeat the process. If the person selected is not available to be contacted within 48 hours then we'll do it all again until a membership is awarded. Yes, it's probably more complicated than it needs to be, but hey, this is a membership in a valuable aviation organization so it's worth the effort to award it fairly! (I highly encourage everyone to become active members of the Missouri Pilots Association and not just the Facebook Group.) www.mopilots.org... See MoreSee Less
