    It's the highest I've been while flying solo. I believe we climbed up to 7.5k during maneuvers one lesson last fall. I don't remember going higher than that.

    Excellent question, and one I'll be required to know the answer to for the checkride I'm sure. There is some leeway for the aircraft owner/operator, but not for a renting customer. If I landed past the 100-hr limit, under normal circumstances it would be immediately removed from commercial service. Meaning, as a paying rental customer I would not be able to fly it any further and would have to arrange alternate transportation home.

The 100-hour limitation may be exceeded by not more than 10 hours while en route to reach a place where the inspection can be done. The excess time used to reach a place where the inspection can be done must be included in computing the next 100 hours of time in service.
    Though as mojoey mentioned, there are situations where a provisional airworthiness certificate or special flight permit can be obtained, which must be in the aircraft at all times during the flight until the 100-hr inspection is performed.

    I can't remember the specific name, but you can ring up the FAA and get a temporary Airworthiness Certificate that allows you to have someone (or yourself, if properly certified) to ferry the aircraft back to wherever it needs to be.

    I calculated that the delta V of the main Trans Pluto Injection burn to be around 350,000 m/s. Since the SSTV has over 20,000,000 m/s of delta V when fully fueled, this should not be a problem. Limited to 3 G's however will make this burn last a good long time.

    Quite, hopefully this one won't be in the Elvis category!

    Found out from one of the threads, that the laminate boards have paper coverings on them. Thought they looked a bit rough...

    Absolutely! Because after all, it's an entirely different kind of flying, altogether.

    With the slide canopy, not so much of an issue. 2VU and I are not tall and I think we're still young enough that creative maneuvering won't cause a regrettable situation.

    With density altitude, though, yes. I could see issues either getting over the Rockies or slugging our way through southern Arizona, New Mexico and west Texas / southern Colorado at lower cruising altitudes with the thermals.

    Nah, if we're going to commute with that many people in one plane (plus luggage) and we had the means, it'd better be something that has the goolies to fly high, and that means complex.

    Ooh, that reminds me. We should find N122VU's last owner and see what they want for the old girl. That'd be fun. A hellish nightmare trying to fit three guys into a Grumman Tiger, but fun nonetheless :D

    I can just see it. By the time we get to Blythe the aircraft is already grumbling like that camel in Spies Like Us.
