Re: Another flight report.

Fantastic Sammy!  Lovin’ that panel!  Lots of knobs that I don’t have any idea about their use.  Hopefully next week I will join the ranks!

Glad you got up in the air!  

What MPH do you look for on final?  I wonder if I’m a tad slow at 85mph on final and trying to touch down around 75mph (not looking inside by that point).

I'm sorry I didn't make a January 1st flight, but at least I made a January 4th flight. I was a little delayed by completing my annual condition inspection, plus the weather wasn't the greatest. I made a significant change to my fuel injection system, removing the backup injectors from the throttle body, and completely reprogramming the mixture map for the system. All in all, I'm glad I did it and I think it's going to be a good thing.

Today I got up for about 40 minutes and proved out the new system, and all is good. But I tell you, there's nothing like staying in the air to remain current. As always, my biggest challenge is maintaining my proper air speeds in the pattern. I always seem to be about 10 miles an hour faster, which certainly messes up my landing. It requires close attention.

It was fun to get back up again today.
