Arctic to Antarctic

Postby N3266G » Tue Aug 23, 2016 11:54 pm

Not yet official but The Mad Greek, Cain and I are thinking about doing a flight from the northern most airport to the southern most. Please feel free to join in, and we will be advising you on the leg distance and what to expect to have installed, with one weeks notice. Here is the route https://skyvector.com/?ll=82.65889848657919,-43.954101567359935&chart=302&zoom=12&fpl=%20CYLT%208200N06000W%20ELNUS%20BGTL%20CYCY%20YFB%20YVP%20AR11%20YKL%20AR11%20YWK%20CZBF%20YQM%20UZX%20CYQI%20ANVER%20TXKF%20GECAL%20TNCM%20SILVA%20G432%20LRS%20W45%20JUREL%20SVMI%20SSB%20W14%20VASOT%20W14%20BRM%20W8%20VRA%20W8%20LFA%20CUC%20G431%20EJA%20EJA%20SKRG%20PEI%20W3%20ULQ%20W3%20CLO%20G675%20MER%20G675%20IPI%20G675%20QIT%20QMS%20W12%20GYV%20G675%20SRV%20G675%20URA%20SPRU%20LIM%20V1%20ASI%20SPSO%20SPOY%20SPLO%20TCA%20SCDA%20SCFA%20SCCL%20SCSE%20SCKL%20NIA%20SCTE%20SCBA%20SCCI%20ALMIR%20SAWH%20PWL%20BONTA%20W56%20GEBOS%20W56%20MIDAL%20W56%20KRILL%20SCRM%20FACT%20KODES%20Q43%20UTUMI%20Q43%20ABV%20UN188%20APGAS%20FYLZ%20WBV%20UN190%20VMO%20FNLU%20FCPP%20FOOL%20FKKY%20DLA%20POT%20DNMM%20TYE%20A609%20LM%20A609%20ACC%20DGAA%20MIMTI%20B600%20TEMBI%20B600%20AFO%20DIAP%20GLRB%20GFLL%20GIA%20GBYD%20YF%20GVAC%20PINPO%20UW11%20GUNET%20GQPP%20DKH%20UA600F%20CABEL%20UN729%20DEREV%20GCRR%20GMMO%20GMMT%20LXGB%20MGA%20B28%20YES%20LEVC%20SAURA%20R60%20SENIA%20LEBL%20BGR%20MAMES%20MTG%20A6%20MTL%20B16%20LTP%20B16%20PAS%20LSGG%20LOWI%20EDDF%20EKCH%20GOLMI%20SVD%20L621%20LAPMA%20EKYT%20ENCN%20ENZV%20TUXIL%20ENBR%20FLO%20TUTOP%20Z105%20VIG%20ENAL%20KVB%20ENVA%20ENBN%20STO%20ENBO%20ENLK%20ENSB%20CYLT and we hope to have you with us!

Can you do hops of about 300 mi? You could do at least 3 of such in one session.

Kind regards, Vincent

The First leg will be happening here on Labor Day Weekend. Nothing like a 3 day weekend to get things rolling. :D

You guys got to become more international minded. There are countries where labor day is non-existent. So always use dates to reach the widest audience in the world. Just like using UTC for time is a good practice.

Kind regards, Vincent

Just to add some support to this. I am in South Africa and have no idea when Labor Day is. I would join in such an event if the times fit in outside my working hours. UTC times work best.

I do apologize! :oops: I hope to start this tour Saturday, September 10th at 22:00 UTC from CYLT to BGTL. PLEASE NOTE: Departure runway length is 5,500ft (1,676m) of ICE! Aircraft that qualify are as follows: Embraer-ERJ-145-XR, Embraer-ERJ-170/175 737-800 by legoboyVDLP, And the MD-11. Landing runway will be 9,997 ft (3,047m), and it is an American Air Force Base with a concrete runway with ILS. See you guys in 2 WEEKS! I will post links to the aircraft in a separate post, so stay tuned!

That i understand: Date and UTC :-) The 777-200 can do some 1000 meters rw. The conditions are good: ice rw = cold air = thick air. But all depends on (fuel) weight. It would be handy to have the leg distances published in NM, if you have it.

Kind regards, Vincent
