I gave the A2A C182 T a long range test today from Coffs Harbour to Norfolk Island, A total distance of 776nm , Departing with full tanks (239 Litres ) I arrived in Norfolk Island with 114 Litres of fuel remaining , I cruised at 11500 ft and had a very light tail wind of around 5 knots for most of the flight using real weather .
A total fuel burn of 215 Litres , Leaned out and with a MP of 17" and 2000 RPM I am very happy with the long range capabilities of this aircraft , Its a joy to fly and having Accu-Sim adding real time wear to the engine and frame , it will be interesting for me to see how it performs in the long term , Currently I have 21 hours of this aircraft since new.
I don't mind these long flights when I have a fair bit to get done elsewhere as i can set the AP once at cruise and then rejoin the flight hours later for descent and landing.
A few shots from flight , not a great deal to see on route.
About to fire up at the hangar , Coffs
Passing Elizabeth Reef, 160 km from Lord Howe Island and 555 km from the New South Wales coast
Very good fuel burn and performance in this Aircraft
Finally arrived at Norfolk Island with Heidi for a late lunch
