So, now I’m flying an aircraft delivered in December in temps above 50 degrees, as this is what passes for spring in Wisconsin. I’d appreciate some tips from those of you operating in warmer environments as to how you’re managing CHT temp during extending climbs to cruise.
My question is the result of a recent experience where departure requested a best rate climb from 3 to 5, and I peaked CHT at the top of the green. More moderate cruise climbs at 600 fpm have not been a problem, with CHTs remaining around 380.
So, how are people managing temps during climb outs, and what results are you getting. Thank you for your help.
P.S.–I’ve ordered engine monitoring from Arnav; they said they would ship mid-May.
