A little preventitive Maintenance on my plane

Posted on December 10, 2010 at 2:00pm 3 Comments

One of the fun things about owning and building a plane is that it is an on going maintence project. Some planes are famous for the amount of ground hour to flight hours.

What do you think the total distance would be for take off to climb out. Airport elevation 1,000 ft. this is in Upper Michigan so we don't have to worry about high temps like Florida.

I own a Piper 150 Cherokee.
I'm looking to fly out of a grass runway that is 1,000 ft. with 50 ft obstacle at end of runway. Is this possible with the XL? I will be using almost the same set up of plane as yours.
