My task of flying the C208 around the world! (5th Leg Complete!)

Hey There IFC!

Hope everyone is doing splendid on this fine day!


Credit Not mine.


Today I had an idea! A rather interesting one at that. I am going to be flying the Cessna 208 around the world and my first leg is crossing the pond! I am going to try and leave my iPad on for the full duration of the day’s I fly turning it off at night. @Ethan_Lee1 is my wonderful route planner! He will be planing most of my legs and he would love suggestions!

I will be updating the thread as I continue and with updated Live Flight Links.

Feel free if you want to join me on any of the routes shoot me a dm and I would love the company!

Please give me route suggestions and cool places to check out!

On final about to land!

How was your landing @USA_ATC? Was it smooth?

Indeed it was butter 🧈 just landed!

Filling up with gas and about to get going again. I’m gonna wait 30min+ So I can get back home and not let my iPad die.

I’m skipping 2 legs because I have determined that the plane can handle a way longer flight and would be better than landing 2 more times.

I’m up and out and at cruise again. I am really pushing this plane to its limits doing 1,068nm flight. Really pushing the fuel to E on this on.

I’ll be landing in 5h02m.

I will do it in day segments and will have my device on for the duration of that’s days flying. So I don’t make it iNpLoDe.

Landing Now!

Day 1 Complete!!!
