Long Wing Cruisin'

We have had the opportunity to do some cruise flights with the long wingtips and check out speeds. With the prop set for cruise, we can easily hit 108kts and up to 110kts at 5000rpm. We're burning about 3.5gph at this setting, which is the best overall for noise, vibration, fuel economy, and comfort. The take off climb rate at this prop setting is "only" 800fpm.
