An expensive aircraft modification to gain a few knots per hour in performance is one way of increasing ground speed. However, there’s another way to improve your planes performance AND save money at the same time.
By flying higher and taking advantage of thinner air and favorable wind conditions you not only increase ground speed but also improve fuel consumption too.
For example, pilots have experienced a tremendous difference in flying at 7,000 feet and 14,000 feet. Of course, to do this safely, adding an oxygen system for you and your passengers is a must. Still, the benefits will outweigh the initial costs.
Aerox Portable Oxygen Systems can cost as little as $500.00 – a fraction of the cost of most major aircraft modifications.
