A profile for an LIVP that might be used in flight planning software was determined from a spread sheet performance model. The following profile was based on the indicated conditions:

                FLIGHT CONDITIONS - TSIO 550 G,  LIVP, 3100 LB

CLIMB                   90% POWER       AT 145 KIAS

CRUISE                 22000 ISA FT       AT 165 KIAS

DESCEND             1000 FT/MIN      AT 165 KIAS

                FLIGHT LOG PROFILE

                                CLIMB                   1066 FT/MIN      26.9 GPH              176 KTAS

                                CRUISE                 75% POWER       16.0 GPH              234 KTAS

                                DESCEND             1000 FT/MIN      9.3 GPH                206 KTAS


Since my LIV has an IO 550 G, I have no way to check the flight log fuel burn and flight time. I am interested in hearing about any LIVP profiles that do an acceptable job of predicting time and fuel burn.
