Cruise Speeds around 100 mph, we have a lot of drag though.
Climb around 1500 feet a minute.
Jan, I'm intrigued by your products and want to understand them in the 750 SD and Cruzer. What was the load (fuel, passengers, cargo) in this SD and was the engine the Honda Turbo that generates 180 HP?
We fly 2 people and full fuel during performance flights
Thank you. I'm still intrigued by your products. I would be interested to understand why you are not in the Subaru conversion business and/or how that experience informed your Viking products. What you said in a video recently is quite intuitive (i.e., auto engines will be smoother than the traditional general aviation engines). Less vibration reduces fatigue on the materials and on the passengers, of course in the common ways.
So, can I sustain the 162 MPH speed in the cruzer at 10.5-12.5? I would expect 162 MPH at 12.5k MSL to approximate 137 MPH at sea level.
