So decided to take a C172 from Alaska to Europe Thanks to @Chad_Garnett for coming up with the idea of taking an SR22 from the US to Europe!

I am using a Cessna 172 with the N Number, N397AL. If you like to join me on any legs please do!


UPDATE: I’ve made it from Merrill to Gulkana for fuel, and enroute to Northway to clear Canadian Customs, I should be there in about 41 minutes!

UPDATE 2: I’ve made it to Northway and clearing customs right now. Next is into Canada! Current I have a 1:54 of flight time. The next flight should be about an hour in a half. Off to CYXY!

UPDATE 3: I decided to skip Whitehorse and fly straight to Juneau, where I refueled. An F16 joined me then bailed, now a Dash 8 is currently following me until we get to Canada!

Enjoy the flights! I’m doing my C750 around the world tomorrow, and maybe I’ll see you on my last two legs. I’m thinking about putting a stop in, so I’ll see if we can coordinate a fly-in.

Oh wonderful! Where are you located currently then? I think I can make Vancouver tonight

I haven’t started yet, but KLUK - BIKF is scheduled for tomorrow. Someone recommended a stop at EGCC, and that is quite possible tomorrow as well.

EDIT: Now that I look at it, I might be able to get BIKF, EGCC, and LGAV all in one day.

Interesting route, but you could go through Russia

I could have, but I think going through America would be fun, plus there’s scenery!
