Not sure if you’ve ever seen this, but there’s a whole series on these guys taking a C210 around the WORLD. Pretty neat if you’re looking for some inspiration, but best of luck! I think you might need it haha https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwgyzNIw4eI

@Jersey_Paul is right, you’re going to significantly reduce your chances going west over the Atlantic, best to go eastward and go high up to take advantage of the winds.
You’re just making a hard challenge even harder challenge

Don’t do it unless you go solo or casual server, cause it could harm your grade if you run out of fuel.

Get a nice soft water landing and we will dispatch the Coast guard and Navy C130s to save you. We can land right next to you in the water and refuel you. Lol
