Post flight interview with Brian Rowser about his flight in an Active Winglet equipped CJ3.
Is a 250 to 300 mile range increase the next step for the CJ3?
Rowser, a pilot with more than 2000 hours in CJ3s, talks about his recent 2043nm flight from Sandpoint, ID to Orlando, FL, in an Active Winglet equipped CJ3.
Taking off 150lb over gross (4900lb of fuel), with ISA +13 nearly the entire climb, and anti-ice on for the departure from Sandpoint, the CJ3 made FL450 in 28 minutes. During the course of the flight the jet averaged 110gph AND landed with 1130lb after a 5 hour 8 minute flight!
Where could you go?
