I’ve been asked this question a lot. Most recently by James who’s an active Online Ground School member. “How and why do we lean the mixture?”
Ask that question around an airport and you might find a lot of answers. Someone once taught me… “Lean it out until the engine quits then screw it back in 3 times!” … I think they were serious is the scary part 🙂
In the video below I’m going to share with you why we lean and some different scenarios when you should be full rich or lean. I’ll also present to you two performance areas of leaning “lean of peak” and “rich of peak”
Check out the video below and let me know what you think… Enjoy! – Jason
Still have a question on how to lean your airplane? Or maybe you have a comment about something I said?
Leave me a comment below. I’d love to hear from you.
