Cessna 210 The traveling machine!

Many people regard general aviation as only a recreational pursuit but there is great utility in having a pilot certificate if you are proficient. This recent trip by member Jack Henion illustrates the point. He left Austin, TX 7am and pulled into Ithaca about 4:30. With adjustment for time zones he was in the air about 7 and a half hours. This plane cruises about the same speed as our Mooney; 155 knots.
