[CANCELED] 24MAR21 / 0415Z - C-130 Long Haul @EGLC-KLAX via KLAS


I’ve never seen a long haul C-130 group flight, so here is one.

No need to sign up, just show up!

We’ll be cruising at FL310 at M0.62 (don’t worry, they can handle it. I’ve tried it before)

  • Aircraft and Livery: C-130H or C-130J, any livery

  • Route: EGLC-KLAX via KLAS

  • Time of Departure: 0415Z, 2021-03-25T04:15:00Z

  • Server: Expert

  • Additional Information:
    A second part to this topic will be published tomorrow for a flight from KLAX to RJSM via RJCB.

Why did I choose KLAX over KSLI? You can’t takeoff a fully loaded C-130 out of KSLI.

For our climb profile

Climb at 3000 fpm at 300 kts until 10000 ft

then go full throttle (trust me, you’ll need it)

If you need to, make your climb less steep. You can stop climbing to gain airspeed, but that takes a while.

All weight settings are optional, but you will not make it without a full tank and little cargo.

what’s the flight time?

Never tried this route before. I’d estimate between 12:30 and 13:30.

Due to the shallow climb, It’ll take appx. 30 mins to reach cruise.

We won’t be using the oceanic tracks because extra miles waste fuel.
