And with 5 on board, where did you put the skis? Down the center aisle?

our recent trip:

700nm, 5 people; their luggage, ski equipment, a coffee machine (don't ask), helmets and boots...

700nm, and burned 170 gals of fuel that cost $3.00/gal. 2+20. (that was the leg up).


So, about the coffee machine..... Where do you ski that doesn’t have the $3000 coffee machine????


we went to Mt. Tremblant... and yes they had coffee (French after all). but I've found nothing is as convenient as the Nespresso when we travel- it's really superb!

and the snow was pretty good. afternoon was a touch sticky, but mornings were excellent for east-coast skiing. we will go back.

skis were the only thing we rented. they would easily fit down the center though (trying not to tear up the interior). I also took out seat #5 (aft, next to the door). it gave us a ton of add'l room. the Elite interior configuration allows easy reconfiguration of the seats, sort of like a car, and they remove with a lever.

I flew 4 people, 3 skis, 1 snowboard, 4 boot bags and luggage. Took back seats out. The gray ski bag actually ended up on the floor between the seats. Using D rings in the seat tracks I was able to secure everything. This was back in February.

That's a load! There are only 2 TBM's flying right now but I was glad to see someone up in the air. I've been at home since 3/10 and am beginning to really get the itch. Thinking of flying to our place in California for a few days.

I was supposed to go up to Vermont for my third ski trip this winter on 3/15. They shut the resorts down on the 14th. Canceled trip to Turks and Caicos. Only saving grace is that I did my in airplane recurrent a week ago Thursday. Lots of actual IFR and approaches.

Oh that poor Meridian interior. Kudos for using the utility but........that just looks wrong.

Interesting thread on TBMOPA concerning P&W requirements regarding engine operation and idle periods. Essentially what I took away was the engine should be run every week and certainly every 30 days with a mini overhaul requirement after 60 days.

Any port in a storm and any excuse to fly in a pandemic! I’m going tomorrow.

Talk about an excuse to fly -

From the Pompano Presentation:
Quote:
For period greater than 90 days but less than one year :
If the FCU is unpreserved for more than 90 days, do an inspection and bench test of the FCU.
If humidity >40% or has not been monitored, route the engine to shop for light overhaul.

This part caught my eye:
Quote:
NOTE: Light Overhaul on a Pratt PT-6 Engine runs between $150,000 - $165,000!

Every 90 days at least....

Speaking for myself only.... by the time one can afford a TBM you are too old and stiff to leave the pilot seat. Given our average mission is an hour or less we could have bought a lot more airplane for the dollars spent, but this amazing machine excels on the normal short mission but is flexible enough for the long. What else goes 1883nm using 225 gallons of fuel with 3 people luggage, for two weeks, and 186 pounds under gross on takeoff.


An M600 can.... as long as the 3 pax and luggage aren’t too chubby ;-). Here is 1865 nm landing with 1.5 hrs fuel.

Edit: although, note the headwind the first 900 nm. ;-). I am not super lucky with tailwinds.
