We had a ball just tooling around. So much so that he told me later that he was surprised how stable the Remos was. A sensible man, the fuel use didn’t go unnoticed either. Which brought us to a crossing point. He said that no matter how much he would love to fly himself to business meetings in Atlanta or South Florida, he can’t justify the expense to rent the Cessna 182T since it costs more than buying a commercial airline ticket. Sad for him because being able to pilot his own way means more time logged and less dust collecting between his leisure flights, which he laments aren’t often enough. When he noticed the Remos sipping less than 4 gph of mogas during our local flight that set him to thinking. (Wanting to be completely transparent with him, I warned him that he should bank on 5 gph for cross-country flights.) Of course, he wouldn’t necessarily want to fly a an LSA to Atlanta at 110 knots or so, but to South Florida? Heck yeah! Affordable and fun.
