Thank you so much! Incredible as I went on the site right last night and discovered it! What a timing! A good way to be always passionate about our planes and knowing them better.

You're a genius. Thank you,

I had the pleasure some time ago to exchange a few emails with you when I ordered the old version of Benchmark. Presently I am following a master degree course in flight testing and certification at Madrid Politechnics University and test pilot class B school.

I want to tell you that Benchmark was received enthusiastically between students and teachers as a teaching and experimenting tool. I want to thank and congratulate you for this outstanding creation.

The software is beautiful. Congratulations.

I just discovered Benchmark after doing a web search for some work I am doing on a Master's thesis.

I am totally blown away. Looks like I am getting a Mac.

I am currently finishing up a Masters in Aeronautics through Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Your program has been an amazing aid for me to model an STC change I made. Your program combined with a bit of statistical analysis has helped me understand and quantify a performance change in a manner which I think will help the reader visually understand my conclusions.

Your program provided detailed performance modeling which I am willing to expand upon further if so desired. The quick story is an Electroair EIS-41000 electronic ignition install which worked, but has a slight timing flaw which could be quantified by a mix of your Benchmark power available to power required curves and another digital engine model.

My installation of the EIS resulted in significant performance change; lost 2.5 kts @ 8500' and tied up at 12500'. The thesis is professional and emotionless.

Again, thank you for developing such a great program. It has also been fun to think about how some planned mods might go.

(This is the second MA thesis at ERAU that used Benchmark.)
