AOPA did an article on our superpercharged Cessna 182. You can read it by clicking here.
Aero-News Network also did a video interview with us in the summer of 2009. The entire interview can be viewed below.
Now that I have had some time to fly with the supercharger I must say I love the climb and cruise is has brought into our 2003 Cent 22. The first thing I really notice is she really loves to climb. Living on the West coast can be a challenge in the summer with the mountains and warm temps. The supercharger is perfect for us because we will use it out of Truckee and Reno and the summer.
I picked up my plane in Denver and went to my other home in Minden NV,725NM. I was at 16500', 182 KTAS, 13.5 GPH, but the best part was climbing out of Denver at 1100 feet per minute. Then the next day I flew to my winter homn in Sedona AZ, 458 NM, short trip so I like to get there so I went just less best power, 2700 RPM, 13500', 16.6 GPH, 191 KTAS, oil temp hot day was 194. I am like a kid with a new toy. Thanks Rod. My plane used to get oil on the belly but no more, stays right on 6 qts.
