Hey y’all! Signing on from Lexington, Kentucky. I’ve been a flight sim addict for years and just discovered Infinite Flight. Started off with FlightGear years ago, went on to X-Plane, and now I’m loving Infinite Flight (especially on my iPad pro. No lag and it’s beautiful!).
I thought it’d be fun to keep an ongoing log of this attempt as well as post screenshots, links, and etc regarding planning. After some initial planning, here are the deets:
I’ll be flying eastbound and trying to catch more favorable tailwinds, especially when deciding whether or not I’m going to try to make the Hawaii to California jump. The winds will have to be very favorable or I won’t be able to make the hop. If I do attempt it, I’ll be following the blue route. If not, I have a route planned north through the Aleutian Islands.
Great Circle Mapper route:
KLEX-KBHB-CYYR-BGBW-BIRK-EGAD-LOWI-LGTS- UGTB-UTAA-VIDP-VNKT-ZPLJ-VVDN-RPMD-PGUM- PWAK-PMDY-PAAK-PAHO-PAJN-KSEA-KASE-KLEX
I’ll be flying SIDs and STARs where available, trying to properly plan for fuel, etc and make this as realistic as possible. I’ll also be using Skyvector to plan each leg of this around the world attempt and a great tool that @DeerCrusher called Windy to check atmospheric winds along the journey (especially as I near PHNL).
I’ll be posting the details for my Lexington to Bar Harbor leg shortly.
