Re: REFLECTOR: Re: Speeds in Velocities.
I agree with this comment regarding High Performance aircraft. It was much
more comfortable for me to transition to the Velocity with 120 hours in a
Bonanza V-tail. The flying club required me to have 250 total hours to even
begin qualifying to fly the Bonanza. I then was required to have 15 hours
duel. With my Velocity (Standard Fixed Gear), the insurance company required
10 hours duel, and I actually wound up with 16 hours. I now have 100+ hours
of flying throughout the West including afternoon departures from Sedona
Arizona and a nearly Gross Weight 4 person takeoff from Truckee (near Lake
Tahoe). The Velocity is much less complex than a Bonanza, but it is a high
performance aircraft. I believe it is a very good aircraft to transition into
the high performance world, but this is a step-up that should be taken
Sorry about the soap box and thanks for the great dialogue and info!
