My 1972 Arrow is going in for annual, flying from eastcoast north to Wyoming, to California through Nevada to Texas and back to Pennsylvania this summer. Could use some "lift and speed" help as we are 4 adults. So I am thinking of some additions for the HesheyBar wing. Any comments/experience is appreciated. Considering wingroot fairing, gear lobe fairings, henge fairings and gap seals. In that order but necessarily all of them. I currently file 140 kts, for real, so I know I can increase fpm in climb (important), shorten length of runway needed and get to a lower stall speed, but will I really see increase airspeed ?
