I have done mine a year ago from Switzerland to Switzerland East bound on a TB21 with mostly 4 and a half hours legs, and it was fun indeed. Since then I have gone around Africa and South America on discovery flights, this is where MSFS shines and cannot be replaced with any other flight simulator, I would never have done that with FS9, FSX or P3D!

I cannot remember all my legs and that would not be relevant to your location anyway, but you will likely follow similar routes in some parts of the world like the Pacific where I had to visit Kamchatka and the Aleutians before reaching Canada, and the Greenland, Iceland, Feroe islands for the Atlantic. These were - weather wise - the most challenging parts since the TB21 could indeed climb up to 25'000 feet but cloud layers could be very thick and high with freezing temperatures in these locations.

Good luck!

When I last flew RTW, one of my stops was Vagar in the Faeroe Islands.  On my entire trip around the world, Vagar had the WORST weather of any I encountered...almost zero vis and clouds almost to sea level.

Also, I flew thru Nuuk, Greenland.  It was July.  The weather was nice when I arrived (about 45 degF, light winds, mostly sunny).  The next morning, when I planned to leave for my leg to Kuluksukiaq (or whatever it's called, on the east coast of Greenland) the weather at Nuuk was 34 degF with 40 knot winds and heavy rain/mixed precip.  Mid-July.

Needless to say I decided to not fly that day (I was using a PA-28 Cherokee).

Hey all! It's been a LOT of fun so far 🙂 Here is my progress. 

Any good recommendation for airport to visit in East US/Canada? 

A few people have joined me on some legs and it has been a lot of fun flying together so if anyone wants to join, let me know.

I just started my world tour in a Bonanza as well, using the route that Noonan/Earhart took.

(Might have to cheat a little crossing from Natal to Dakar and Hawaii to California re: fuel consumption…I’ll just pretend I have wing tanks and a back seat full of auxiliary fuel tanks)

 

Great good fun!

Nothing like having your own custom livery for the world tour 🙂
