RTW flight plan help

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

I would like to have a RTW flight plan if anyone has done this. Would probably fly it in the Phenom 300, and time each segment to see how long it will take. Thinking about starting from my home airport KRDU or KIAD.

Any suggestions on how to go about this will be appreciated. At this point I only have flown in USA and Europe.

I have a routine to fly to every country's capitol, starting at KIAD - you can start anywhere of course.  

To put my plan together I used https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/?low=c&sort=2 A time zone site that lists all the capitols of the world sorted by time.

Using that list in conjunction with https://skyvector.com/   to make adjustments to each leg according to distance and efficiency, or avoiding zig zag all over the map. I also use http://www.mapping.com/airportcodes.shtml to get airport codes if I don't know them.

I fly anything from a C152 to a A320 to a 777LR (no preference - I enjoy them all) and I will check either http://flightaware.com/ or https://aviability.com/  for feasibility of the flight/aircraft.

By using all these resources a flight from one capitol to another often times will fly to another hub first, so most if not all of the major airports of the world are covered. And making stops to other cities or interesting places is not forbidden. :-)  

Using Active Sky, PFPX, and Navigraph to plan each flight once the legs are sorted.

Once you have the legs how you want them, then you can make a spread sheet and save for future use. I have had mine since FS 2002 with adjustments as needed to match airport changes and airline schedule changes.
