As a lot of you may know, I’m a big fan of flying General Aviation flights around southern Florida, and because my subscription ended, it’s easily my favorite region to fly around. There aren’t many commercial routes in the region so GA is the way to go, and I hadn’t tried the updated Cessna 172 so I flew it from St Petersburg - Clearwater down to Opa Locka. But as I usually do I took a longer routing where I flew past Sarasota, Fort Myers, The Everglades, The Florida Keys, and up to Miami from the south. The flight would probably only take a little over an hour and a half, but with my slow speed, low altitude, and longer routing, it took 2 hours and 52 minutes. I took of in the mid afternoon and landed just after sunset in Opa-Locka.
