I fly my 701 out of a 7000' airport, L35, and have a 912 engine with high comp pistons installed to produce about 90 hp at sea level. Plane has the fixed slats installed. The plane's performance is so marginal that I can not take a passenger because the plane will not climb over 50 mph with nose abnormally high just to stay level in the air. However at lower altitude airports of 3000', performance is better and there is better flying margin and I can climb at 400 fpm solo.
