Jordan, when you're using jet fuel, much of it will be purchased through contract sources. Set up a user account on jetfuelx.com. Then, apply for a bunch of fuel cards. Jetfuelx has a list. You'll figure it out. Saves a bunch.

Most excellent! Saving money in aviation is a rare and good thing!

Saving” is a relative misnomer in aviation. Lower cost yes, save no. :cheers:

True, but CAA might be the closest thing to actually saving money, so much so that I track the savings in my flight log. Compared to non-CAA fuel prices I saved over $4,000 last year on fuel purchased with the card.

TBMs have long legs. Evidenced by my flight yesterday.

Wow that’s awesome. Not a ton of tailwind either. What do you feel is a practical still air range of the C2?

Exactly the same as my bladder. 4.5 hours. Plane flies 290ish at 300 using 85 torque burning 52gph. It was cool upstairs yesterday so itt temps were 745 or so. So including climb figure 1200 km give or take outside temps. You can get more if you really pull it back to about 245 but that works against you in a strong headwind. Also that bladder thing.
