I would recommend a small 737 or E-jet


Help us make our special event break the assistance record of Big Bear Events of 17 people!

Sounds like a great flight, but the Dash usually would ever exceed ~270 kts airspeed in cruise.

why are you saying that?

Oh, you are saying it because of the pic! lol it’s just for show and its an amazing pic from @AdamCallow

No, I just noticed it from the leg details giving the cruise altitudes and speeds. Other than that small issue it sounds like a great event!
