Although I didn't consult with an aerodynamicist or look up any Vne speeds or drag coefficients, I havelearned, thru my experience in flying Pietnepols that you're more likely to get passed up more quickly atcruise speeds by Canadian geese if flying a Ford powered Piet vs. a Continental or Corvair powered Piet.Mike C.Ohio________________________________________________________________________________Date: Thu, 19 Feb 2015 20:58:36 -0500
