Newbie to Skydemon here and I fly the PA28. Flying to Southend from Kemble on Sunday for a currency checkflight and this will be the first time I have used Skydemon properly. Hope it goes well!
I was taught when learning that 7 USG/Hour was a good ballpark figure for the PA28-161. But now we have consumption for taxi/takeoff, climb, cruise, descent and landing. So therefore, I just want to revisit this ball park figure that I was taught and break this down so my figures are correct in Skydemon. I also want to start using Litres as 'the speak' now, not US Gal. 35Ltrs/Hour sound about the same?
The hourly cost of the PA28 I fly is £125.00. And I aim for about 95 IAS in the cruise, but obviously I know you have have 75% power, 65% Power, 55% Power etc etc. I would ideally like to have all these cruise profiles in there so I can choose the best one.
