So, I flew in one of our club's M20J's this weekend and now I've decided I must pony up and get checked out in them. I was flying with a friend who just completed his checkout. He was having some trouble with the engine management. I'm trying to help him get a simplified configuration table established. From an hour in the airplane I came up with this; Cruise Climb: 100kts 25" and 2500 RPM Gear + Flaps Up Cowl Flaps 1/2 Open Lean 100 degrees ROP Cruise: 2400rpm Wide open but not over 25" (the POH seems fine with operating over square) Cowl flaps closed Lean 100 ROP (full rental power here - 100ROP is best power per POH) En-Route Descent: 22" and 2200 RPM Aiming for 500FPM descent without re-trimming Initial Approach Segment 18" and 2200RPM 100 Knots Gear Down FAF Propeller Forward Reduce to 14"
