Default Why does a CS prop make a difference?

I thought I understood LOP operations but I'm obviously missing something.

Why does a fixed vs CS prop make any difference?

Short answer -- it doesn't with respect solely to LOP ops. However, the previous posts get into concepts of engine ops beyond just LOP.

Default Thanks!

Thanks Todd - an engine management course sounds like what I need. Clearly over my head here.

Never a bad idea, but in lieu of a class, the John Deakin's Pelican Perch articles over on AvWeb are a treasure trove of information. Here's an example:

Once there you can see the links to other articles on engine management covering all phases of flight from startup to shutdown.
