Oh for the days when I'd go and do six 52 mile sectors in the morning in a DC-9.

Being a green and keen F/O in those days I never turned on the autopilot. Jaded skippers did, but not for long,...

So Nuts, you're correct. Green dot is best L/D. (Just looked it up to make sure.) Therefore it's best glide, therefore it's max range.
