[Closed] Plane & Pilot: Trans-Tasmanian (In a C172) @ YCBG - 191500ZJAN20

Hey guys!

Join Plane & Pilot next weekend as we cross the massive Tasmanian Sea, not with a jet, but with IF’s newest GA model: the Cessna 172! We will start in beautiful Hobart, Tasmania (YCBG) and then head across the pond to even more beautiful Queenstown, New Zealand (NZQN). This will test not only the range of the aircraft, but its ability to handle the high crosswinds of sea. So, if you have some free time this Sunday and want to push the Cessna to it’s limits while checking out some awesome scenery, make sure to sign up! Note: this route has been tested and is possible. Everyone Grade 3+ is welcome! Just post below and we will add you to the list.
