Celebrating the A220-300 by flying 24 Hours straight.
Disclaimer: After several advices to be more conscious about my health, I have slightly amended the plan to make up for some breaks. I also emphasize that I am not planning on doing similar challenges on a regular basis. I will not push my limits too far and will stop if needed!
As you might know, I was one of the most active users in the A220 request thread (under the name Maximilian1805) and as a result, an unknown excitement has built up with the A220-300 finally coming to life. That’s why I have decided to do something I have never tried before for the release of the A220: Flying Air Tanzania’s A220-300 for 24 Hours straight!
Created by me
In total, I will fly 15 flights with flight times between 2:30hrs and 0:15hrs. The estimated time spent in the air will be around 21:45hrs. The remaining 2:15hrs will be used for refueling, taxiing, and taking breaks.

When will I undertake this journey?

This might change though, but if it does, I will amend the thread of course!
Thank you for viewing this topic! Hopefully, some of you will join me on my trip through southeast Africa with Air Tanzania!
