Glide performance


Recommended Posts

I did a test shortly after buying my 2008 CTLS.


While I can't seem to find my post in the archives I do remember this.


It was engine OFF, 2 attempts at 4,000', 2 pax (glider pilot in right seat), IAS 72 kts, light winds. The average attained was 1.7nm glide per 1,000' altitude loss.


IIRC most responders felt this was well short of their experience, expectations.


But 1.7 is what I have programmed into my Skyview for gliding distance.
