Thread: Many thanks to the Koch family for BACFest 2019

  1. #11
    Thank you all for the kind words. You know, when you take your family to a special event or on a special trip, you always want it to be the best you can make it and for BAC - our second family - the goal was exactly the same!

    Thank you all for coming. It was so great to see you all here in Colorado and no matter where we find ourselves for future BACFests it will be great to see you all again then. Take care, and safe flying throughout the coming year!

    For all of us that couldn't make it this year, we are dying to know the next location so we can start dreaming and planning for next year.

    Thank you so very much for the wonderful time! I’m so glad that I made it to my 13th BACFEST.

    Rick, Chris and Koch Family, you are such wonderful host, so hospitable, thoughtful and attentive to every detail. O2 bottles for us low landers. Really? Getting me a late reservation at the hotel. And the Starbucks coffee and treats, wine and cheese at the tour stops, was just over the top! Thank you so very much.

    Please get some rest, huff on those O2 bottles and reflect on a job well done! I will never forget this experience!

    As Fred said, it will be in Tullahoma, TN and will be held in conjunction with the museum's annual Beech Party. Important to note that, while our BACFest is usually held in September, 2020 will be Oct. 7-10. Hope to see everyone there.

    After there has all been said already what I would have mentioned I can only repeat : many thanks to the whole Koch family for the fantastic organization!
    I'd like to take the opportunity as well to thank Nelson for his hospitality in the AMEN RIVER HOUSE during the pre-event warm up and Tom and Lisa for letting me log my first 1.15 in a SUPER during the fly-out!
    I felt a warm welcome from the first minute although I didn't know anybody before that (except Amy and Jay, I enjoyed having seen you again!)
    Jeff, J. P. : let's ride together in Tennessee next year!
    Marty: great lesson about our engines, although most of us have been too tired to understand all that. Therefore I add the pictures nobody has uploaded before.
    I had a great time with all of you, thank you!

    The only things that you really need to know about operating your aircraft engine are;

    For carburetor aircraft;

    Best Economy; Fly at Peak EGT.

    Best Power; Lean to Peak EGT, then enrich mixture to 125 to 150 degrees below Peak EGT.

    For Injected Engines;

    Best Economy; Fly at Peak EGT. Or a little Lean of Peak with an engine analyzer only.

    Best Power; Lean to Peak EGT, then enrich mixture to 125 to 150 degrees below Peak EGT.


    At Peak EGT your CHT should have fallen below 400 degrees Centigrade. Yoda always said, “You can’t hurt your engine flying at Peak (Leanest) EGT.” Don’t try to fly your carb engine lean of Peak. Nor your injected engine without an analyzer.

    Gas is never gonna be cheaper than it is today. Throw some gas in that engine and fly as fast as you can. 125 to 150 degrees Rich of Peak puts you in the center of the Best Power Band on this chart. 125 or 150 (Your Choice) is the only number you need to know or care about. IMHO
