What’s the highest you have ever been, in GA?
Just FL120 and not for long. I don’t have oxygen so anything higher would not be good.
FL450 in a Citation (still GA); you need your mask handy, if it all goes wrong you only have about 4 seconds.
4999 amsl (over Germany)
FL200 in a conventional DA40 TDI:
FL220 in a PA28RT-201T to escape a mountain wave over Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
FL 160 on my flight back from AERO fare in EDNY to EDLE in my Europa.
FL 220 over the alps for one hour in IMC, stratus, OAT -18° C. No ice up there ! Cessna T182T. I really like it !
out of curiousity what’s the climb rate up there in a DA40? And what’s the TAS?
FL270 in a TBM700C2 that I flew for a magazine, FL160 in my SR22
