#1302

ULTRA LONGHAUL
Has anyone tried flying LHR-AKL (London-Auckland) Nonestop?, or perhaps from Europe to New Zealand? It’s been done with an A340-500 in real before. I’m really tempted to try, in a 777-200LR.


#1303

DO it tomorrow and tell us how you did


#1304

I’ve done it. Used a 787-9 with 4 pilots and 50kg of cargo and made it with 15 mins of fuel to spare. It took me about 21 hours


#1305

I love flying the DC10 and the MD11. So I decided to do a little training flight doing approach training, precision turns, stall tests, …

It’s an amazing airplane.


#1306

Gotta think about it. 21 hours is a long time, won’t be able to use my device in the mean time. Might try it before the weekend. I’ll definitely put it in here


#1307

Did you just set a waypoint from your location to Auckland? Or did you follow a “real” route with multiple waypoints along the way. It would be interesting to know where the Jetstreams are located to take advantage of them…


#1308

Short flight to a Fun airport!

Chennai(VOMM), India-Port Blair(VOPB), Andaman Islands

Flighttime: 1:15-1:30 hours.
There’s no Waypoints near the island, so you’ll have to fly manually on the final leg.
Longest Runway: 04/22 is 10795 ft (3290 m)
The Airport (VOPB) is surrounded by rather extreme Landscapes. You’ll find that just before RWY 22 there’s high terrain, making it tricky to land( as seen on photo below)

#1309

I gotta try that after work. Do you know what fpl you used?


#1310

image this is the one I used. Departed out of Chennai RWY 07 and approached Port Blair RWY 22

This one looks a lot more elegant, but takes longer:


#1311

Literally just used a SimBrief fpl. Worked a treat.


#1312

KLGA-CYYZ


#1313

EDDF - MPTO (Frankfurt - Panama)
Flighttime: 11 h
Thanks to a stiff headwind it was pretty close at the end. But landing while a sunset makes every flight even more special!

Departure


Descent


#1317

I guess was hard to land with 717…


#1318

Just about at the T.O.D. on my flight from PANC-SPIC. Upon landing should be about 12 hours in the air.


#1319

WSSS to NZAA


#1320

If anyone here checks the Liveflightapp I just started a delivery flight of a Cessna 208 from Wichita to Bagdad using Iraqi Army 2 08 as the callsign. I have no idea how many stops it will take but I’m going for it.


#1321

Well, so much for that. Didn’t wake up with my alarm and I must’ve ran out of fuel over Greenland and crashed. Went from a LVL 4 to a LVL 1, with 6 violations, so I must’ve spiraled down breaking all sorts of speed limits. HA
