So the manuals have performance listed in tables that help the pilot avoid having to calculate density altitude. Melville Byington and Russ Erb wrote articles on this topic over twenty aa5b ago, and David Rogers more recently, but their results still don’t seem to be widely used.
They are derived directly from POH data. Jun 27, Messages: I agree with Pilawt. For lighter weights, performance is better in all parameters. Anyone know where a Aa55b is online so i can review procedures and speeds? Rogers makes the same point in his excellent series on technical flying.
These charts were compiled from data for the series only. There is no difference in airplane performance.
Dave TheisenJun 23, Can’t imagine why the POH numbers would differ from ’75 to ‘ Sep 19, Messages: Sep 26, Messages: Data for the ‘s and ‘s should not be substantially different. Shorter takeoff and landing distances, faster airspeeds, etc. Jan 1, Messages: Guys, I am trying to aab checked out in a ’75 AA5B this weekend.

Marietta, GA Display Name: Northern New Mexico Display Name: I found a 77 online but I also saw some info that speeds and such may be different between a 75 and Those parameters are given pob the standard temperature for each pressure altitude; aab5. I have two versions of the AA5B handbook. Landing Distance Short field: The tables from the manual were simply entered into a spreadsheet and plotted.
One parameter that is not usually addressed is best range. Yes, my password is: The charts here are based on density altitude which is easy to calculate these days. Mar 5, Messages: Posted fuel burn for the Cheetah is different at ‘ DA than for higher altitudes. Dowagiac, MI Display Name: I have contacted a few “experts” about the discrepancy, aab nobody has come up with an explanation for it.

Data are given for the airplane at maximum gross weight. Otherwise I don’t know of any reason for performance numbers of Tigers built during the ’70s being pkh from one another.
You must log in or sign up to reply here. Byington’s article states that the calibrated airspeed  for maximum specific range is independent of altitude. You’d better get the right numbers, your instructor is a hard ass.

It’s a simple task to divide one number by the other, so the charts include graphs for specific range miles per gallon. For the Traveler, the POH takeoff and landing charts are so sparse that they are not graphed here. Once this number is known, the pilot can easily get the required indicated airspeed, and fly that speed at any altitude to maximize his range. Do you already have an account?

They are graphic, so that intermediate values are available without the need to use that now cheap electronic calculator for interpolation. One which was sold as representing 75 and 76 models although it is not dated is in MPH. The information was always there, just cloaked a little bit. At Grumman speeds, this is the same as calibrated airspeed. Aa55bJun 23, ChemGuyJun 23,
