Around the world flight plan progress!

Recommended Posts

I have not been doing to much with my abition to fly around the world, but I have recently started again. I just compleated my 16th flight! Out of 63 flights total, thats not very far, but four more and I will be all the way across North america!Landed at Toronto Lester B Pearson, Canada, flying from Sault Ste Marie Canada. I ran into a snag during the flight though. My fifteenth leg was a waypoint! I had to scronge around for a navaid to get me close enough to use the neaest feacher on the GPS. It worked allright though, no harm done.

Thanks Steve. A NASA prodject huh? Wow, sounds neat. BTW, what rout do you indend to take on your proposed RTW ( round the world ) flight? And with what bird? A Pa-19 might take longer then, well would be reasonably feesible. Maybe, I could interest you in stoping by Hawaii, hmm? ;-)Take care.

Well I printed out your Route and was going to follow that :-) But I would start in the UK.The Aircraft would be the Saharah, but I may hold out for the Robinson Helicopter... Now that would be a hard one, but possible.The NASA project is a realy big deal for me, involving teaching others and being on local TV & Radio... if I can pull it off.Its all in the sponsors hands now.All the best, Steve.http://mysite.freeserve.com/ysomdesign/banner.jpg][/divHomepage now open.

You would follow my route? It will be nice to know you are on the same route as me when you get started. A few notes about my rotue though. Stop 15 from San Fran, Tobemerory is spelled wrong and it is not an airport, it's a waypoint! And Sawyer Intl, mighigan has a runway that extends over a incline and is about 30ft off the ground at one point You may want to modify my route to land at alternet airports at those two places.The Sahra huh? Neato, I was pondering it as a option, but the PC-12 won me over.If you do decide to waite for the Robinson, it might be neate to make a special "Round the world" re-paint for it. Who knows, maybe some other Fly!II users will try it too :-)Hope the NASA prodject does well. I know you can pull it off! ;-)
