Creating a scene at the airport

November 21, 2009 by Alton K Marsh

One of our staff members at AOPA saw Senior Editor Dave Hirschman completing his final takeoff during his checkout ride and asked if we were doing a high-performance demonstration. Not at all. The Remos climbs at 65 to 70 knots. Keep that speed and you’ll climb very steeply. Dave and I were climbing at a spectacular 900 feet per minute. That’s a routine takeoff.
