Around the world in a C172!

Hey everyone! Soon, I will be circumnavigating the world in a C172!

About the C172

The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is an American four-seat, single-engine, high wing, fixed-wing aircraft made by the Cessna Aircraft Company. First flown in 1955, more 172s have been built than any other aircraft. It was developed from the 1948 Cessna 170, using tricycle undercarriage, rather than a tail-dragger configuration.

Flights:
KSTS-KSEA
KSEA-CYPR
CYPR-CYXY
CYXY-PFKU
PFKU-UHMA
These routes will take a long time on their own, so I will add more during PFKU-UHMA!
Hope you might be able to join me!

This definitely seems like the journey! The C172 is an amazing aircraft. Sometimes flying low and slow helps take in the beauty of Infinite Flight and the world around your aircraft. This will for sure take some time! Best of luck to you.

Hey @ItsBlitz! I’ll tag you for sure!

I might start at PANU which is right next to PFKU since it has assigned ramps
