120-1 Fly to Use Less Fuel
is a booklet that explains the working speeds of the aircraft such as, steepest climb speed, best rate of climb speed from 0 to 5,000 ft., best rate of climb speed from 5,000 to 10,000 ft., speed of most flight time per gallon of fuel, speed of most miles per gallon of fuel, speed of slowest decent power off, speed of shallowest glide. It explains these working speeds of the aircraft in simple to understand graphics, no complicated mathematical formulas used.
And what’s even better there’s no need to do a time consuming flight test program to determine the working speeds of your aircraft. Or for that matter any type certified aircraft. This booklet gives simple multiplication factors, based on cruising speed, to determine the working speeds for your homebuilt aircraft. Knowing the speed to fly at to go the greatest distance or stay up the greatest amount of time can be critical under certain conditions.
Flying your aircraft using the techniques described in this booklet will save on the cost of gasoline an item that will only continue to escalate in cost as time goes by. This booklet comes with an adhesive backed aluminum placard to list the working airspeeds of your aircraft.
