So we are really trying to discuss if the maximum of "miles/gallon" happens at the same time as the maximum of "hours/gallon". Taking example: If my maximum range (=minimum drag) is at 105 knots, let say for the sake of the example I have 30 gallons of fuel that burns in 3 hours giving me a range of 315 miles - 3 hours flight - 10 gallons/hour So if the speed decrease by 10%, assuming drag increase by 5% (we know it is not linear) but now I don't need to p
  2. I am in the same boat. Like I don't work for NASA but the rest is pretty much the same. So no experienced advice here, sharing my thought process: my intent is to complete a private license, and then go for commercial/instrument/Flight instructor ratings.
