Yes but when you're sucking down 50gph or more the price diff between avgas and jetA becomes more meaningful.



Very true.

I am curious about the altimeter setting...


Good catch Jeff. At that point I had recently installed the Aspen and still wasn't using it as my primary (or even secondary) altimeter. I was still used to and using my two analog altimeter "clocks". I've since become accustomed to the Aspen tapes and use them as primary now. Even so, it was bad form. I should have set the Baro to 29.92 on the Aspen as well. I now set all three.

Gerald, I believe that for your early 1960's A55 w 550s. Great performers! I was referring to 58 barons as was referenced by Raj in his original post. You have one fine machine!

I was actually "calling all cars" - I want to know the fastest Baron - any model - below 12,500Ft

And no, not hypothesis or opinion (I got plenty of those :D ) but actual experience.. :thumbup:


WOT on my 56tc at 5000 would easily put you past redline. Never tried it higher. They liked to cruise in the yellow arc I know at lower altitudes.

Even my NA Baron is in the yellow at 5,000. Because of the IAS limitations most Barons will be about 210kts TAS at 5,000.

7500 to 10,000 is a better range.

What is the fastest flavor of Baron? (below 12,500')
I can do 200+ KTAS in my IO550 BE58 that grosses at 5500#, with boots, but without VGs.

So I would guess a lighter plane (any other Baron, be it 55 or 58), with 550s should be able to go faster... I just wonder what is the heirarchy of speed demons.

:popcorn:

I just got my new to me 1979 BE58 IO55s at 7500 22 inches 2300 rpm it trues 201 to 203 normally this is of course below gross aircraft is very clean fresh engines and new props

My 56TC wide open throttle 2900 rpm below 12,500 would push it past the 260 mph redline. So I don't know how fast it would go below 12,500.
