What is your longest flight in the NGX?

Recommended Posts

 

I tend to fly short routes in the 700, so my longest flight is probably only 800nm or so (my typical distance is about 300nm). Just wondering what sort of distance others are travelling in the NGX (unmodified of course)....

 

Especially interested in people who are flying it light & far...

I usually fly +-500nm like TPA-MSY, but my longest flight was MDW-OAK.

The longest are in the 3,000 mile range -- I am about to do Tokyo to Port Morsby, PNG - That is about 3,500 miles ---It will have to depend on the winds aloft and the weather in PNG if I can go for it.

 

I can't remeber the routes that have been the longest so far. It has to be something like India to Hong Kong or Siberia to the UK...I can't really remember right now.

I have flown Glasgow EGPF to Manchester KMHT a number of times. 2615nm. 18 tons fuel loaded, 2 tons left. 165 pax. 6hrs 20 mins. Return is around 6 hrs, 15.5 tons burnt. Montreal, Boston and Pease are all good to fly to.

After doing some acceptance test flights around KBFI, and of course with a layover in BIKF.

Typically I do CYYC-CYYZ which can take around 4 hours. The longest I've done is CYYJ-CYYZ. May try CYYC-CYHZ sometime.

I just kicked off OMDB - EGLL just for fun, but I'm having a hankering to play some Crysis 2 so I may not see this through :P

My longest currently is 2734 nm KMHT-EGCC. 737-700 120 PAX+Bags

Longest westbound is 2498 nm EGKK-CYHZ 737-700 110 PAX+Bags

 

Longest -800 flight is 2297 nm NTAA-SCIP.

 

Another flight I want to try with the NGX is RJAA-PANC-KJFK both legs are just under 3000 nm.

Fort Lauderdale to Seattle-- about 6.5 hours. That last hour was all about concentration-- like hoping I wouldn't forget something or screw up the approach... oh that and praying to the flight sim gods that FSX wouldn't freeze or crash! :(

Did BIKF-LZIB way back with the old NG, parallel to real NE frame delivery, four NGs flew KBFI-BIKF-LZIB on IVAO. In the NG prolly something like BUD-STN. I am not sure I ever left Europe for Turkey or Norhtern Africa with the NG.

EVRA-LOWI

757 miles.

Yes, I'm not a fan of long haul flights.

But I think I might give KBFI-EVRA a shot some time.

Longest for me was KBFI-ENGM on a delivery flight. 3965nm as the crow flies with close to zero payload. Still had about 3-4000 kilos of fuel left in the tanks if I remember correctly!

I'm not admitting to making any .cfg tank capacity edits, but last Saturday I flew KBFI-URSS in the N920DS repaint. ;) Flightplan distance 5414nm, flightplan ETE 12+19, burn 63,600 lbs.

(2,034 lbs to alternate URKK, 2,973 lbs for 45 minute reserve, and 1,893 lbs on the extra line for a total ramp fuel of 71,000 lbs. Pretended to have no payload and an empty weight of 99,000 lbs for a takeoff weight of 169,500 lbs.)
