Grass strips?

Post by Cluemeister »

I have an opportunity to keep my Tsi at a grass strip. 2200' x 100'. Any thoughts, pro or con, at keeping a new Tsi at a grass strip?

One con might be that you may have to take off the wheel pants more regularly to inspect and make sure you don't have grass trapped in them.

Maybe it's an issue, maybe it's not, worst case, you could always decide not to fly with the wheel pants and lose a bit of performance.

Lose performance? I couldn't look myself in the eye if the 150 knots dropped into the 140's. Pants are staying on for sure.

I've seen 2's and 4's flying around on grass in S. Africa, I was hoping someone would have feedback on flying off grass.

Thanks for responding Philip!
