I hope you enjoy all of the results. I hope you make it to the top ten on the list. Before you all ask yes you can fly on solo and do circles as long as you land at a different airport. You can submit more than one for each aircraft example: I flow from YMML-YSSY in the XCub with a flight time of 2 hours and I flow from YSSY-YBCG with a flight time of 2 hours.

Done you have now been added.

I hate not being a regular 😂… I’ll see if I can try something later, probably get up to a stupid altitude in Florida and glide the way down…

I don’t really think a C-130 is a GA aircraft though.

Honestly don’t remember the time as it’s not in my replays anymore after the Google play issue cleared my replays. But I went from KCUH to KIRK in a 172

C750 flight

Made a Trans-Pacific Crossing in the TBM930 not once but twice. Flight time was 5:40hrs. Ran out of fuel on a short final of about 5nm from the end of the runway. The initial plan was to go from PHNL to KSFO but we weren’t going to make it after getting closer. Made a diversion to KHAF instead. The second trip was from PHOG to KSNA where I averaged 75kt tailwinds and ended up landing with 10% fuel. KHAF, didn’t even have fumes in the tanks.

The key to making this crossing is that you need tailwinds of 55kts or more for the entire trip. Without the winds its not possible.

Wow. That’s impressive right there

Ok well that’s insane. I did something like that in a C750 for 13 hours and I ran out of fuel right before decent

Ah, good old times when KHAF basically was the main hub for every pilot in the San Francisco region…

I might gonna challenge you on that one. Wanted to do a TBM „long haul“ for quite some time now, and this one sounds like a good idea. Quite impressive though!

If you’re up for an extra challenge (even though its not GA), the C130 is a great aircraft for overnighter flights. Does a 13-14hr trip easily. 🙂
