Hey, hey! Be nice. I fly a skyline and I can get it down to as little as 115kts in slow flight if I use all 40 degrees of flaps :lol:

Just in case anyone missed it, the "skylane and slow flight" thing is a reference to one of the Sebring UCAP Daily's, where Jeb told about getting behind (and then way behind) a Skylane, whose pilot was unable, or chose not, to exercise what even Jeb acknowledges that the plane is capable of.

Welcome to the world of soaring Jim! I live in Chattanooga now and we have a tow plane..... You have a place to stay if you want to come down and ride the ridge. I'm based at APT. Congrats on the new chapter
