  • Read a little on the Chelton systems. VERY highly regarded...may be superior to Garmin or Avidyne...very costly..

    Thanks Kent. Here is a link to a 2007 Plane & Pilot article that gives specs for a very comparable aircraft... however my fuel cap is lower (74 gal) and my useful load is a bit lower due to extensive panel and interior. Notably, the BRS parachute system comes with a gross weight increase STC, so the NET result is about 65lb INCREASE in useful load (see the second link below).

  • The Plane and Pilot link worked for me, not the FlyingMag though...

  • Thanks Commish. Incredible what can be accomplished! With proper funding...lol

  • I can see the speed vs fuel burn is VERY favorable!
