Michael Lessard, CFII/MEI


Despite what the Pilot’s Operating Handbook might say, the performance that we get out of our aircraft isn’t always a textbook outcome.  Let's explore the real numbers that we are more likely to find when we fly, how we can determine those ahead of time, and to learn about some of the “Got yas!” that sneak up on the unwary pilot.  Our discussion will include performance, performance charts and data, and weight and balance considerations, as well as some great tricks and techniques to keep you on “your” numbers.
