Here it is, RR at Flight Level 410. Let the addiction continue!

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

What are you flying, and where are you that it's light out?

I didn't want to post it while flying so I took a pic and uploaded it tonight. This was earlier today while flying from Seattle to Northern California.

It's a hassle with our system on our iPads.

How come the standby attitude indicator shows 30.01 at FL410, yet it still shows 41000ft? Your PFD says std. as it should.

Hi

Very cool cockpit. Not as plastic as my bus.

0.8 @ FL410..... Didn't know they did that.
What sort of range and pax config it got?

Regards
Paul

Every flight we do an RVSM check. We set the standby to read the same altitude as the primary altimeter and record the altimeter setting.

pwood,

We normally fly between 390 and 430, it has a service ceiling of 490. Anything above 440 and it's a dog, temperature really has an effect on the performance of the engines.

The airplane has seats for 8 passengers and two pilots. It has a range of 3,000 nautical miles, so coast to coast non-stop is not a problem. Myself and another pilot flew it around the world earlier this year, I had never done that before.

Friday power is Mach .82

haha, I chuckled at that. Next up is give the passengers parachutes and have them jump over their destination, that will save even more time!

We should fly formation some time. If I push the limits I can flightplan about 98 knots! 1946 Cessna 120.

Too funny to see RR at 41,000ft.

Hi

Biz jets must be very cool to fly....high performance rocket ships with all the new generation toys. If your boss/company doesn't mess you about.

Got to love airline rosters....

The downside for those guys though is they're stuck on the road a lot. Hanging in pilot lounges and such waiting for the executives to return. Many times they have to stock the airplane before the flight and clean it out afterwards. Not much chance to be building a heli and certainly not any good size r/c airplane when you're out of town.

Depends on the job, where I work it is a VERY good schedule. We have excellent equipment and time off. Pay is not top of the industry and not on the bottom either, but it's good.
