ElYuainXD’s Cessna 172 “VFR World Tour” Thread


Welcome to my Cessna 172 “VFR World Tour” a crazy idea that I recently came up with, after flying the Cessna 172 after a long time.

Flying airliners in IF is like bread and butter, is an essential part of the Simulator, aswell as flying IFR.

So, for this challenge we will push airliners to the side and focus in another integral part of flight simulation, General Aviation and flying VFR, which I think are very underrated.

So, the plan is, start from Spain, my home country, and make our way to California in the United States, all while flying VFR with the mighty Cessna 172 (the non G1000 version) all the way to America.


I’ve already flown from Barcelona to Sabadell Airport, before arriving to Girona Costa Brava Airport, so I’m not going to count these as legs of the challenge.

I will be posting the legs that I make aswell as making an announcement 30 minutes before departing, if anyone wishes to join me.


Additional Rules

Need to fly using VFR whenever possible (if an airport is not in VFR conditions for takeoff, I can’t takeoff at that time, and need to wait to the weather to clear up) avoid night flying, and only use VOR’s as waypoints and navaids where possible.
