Hello IFC! I would like to make a long haul event, so here it is! The point of this event is to get the approximate range of most aircraft. We will take off from SBGL and fly as far as possible! I(we) will try to get every aircraft in IF served by at least 1 person! I would love to see you all there!


There will be groups: prop GA, Little planes, small jets, medium jets, large jets, jumbo and fighters. Planes will takeoff from KLAX and follow the flight plan provided. Copy it from me


We request that only those who sign up (below) attend this event. Please make sure you can come, and cancellations should be within an hour of the event.
Now on topic…
Planes will takeoff on the active runway available. Fly on any heading that is between 260-280 or 80-100 (depending on wind direction).
Put your device on auto pilot and set to an altitude of you choice. Avoid flying to the northern early due to the trans American jetstream and to stay in the calmer wind down south. When you run out of fuel, note the nearest airport and flight time. If you can use a flight tracker that would be better.

NOTE: I will be controlling at for 15 minutes after the beginning of the event, or until all planes clear out.

If there is a plane you want to fly and less that 3 people have asked for it, I will add another slot for you. No more than 3 per plane type.

I hope to see you all there!


If you would like a slot/space, reply below! Hopefully I get an ok turnout

US is not the best place for this due to the Trans American Jet stream. This makes ranges not a fair test. The best place would be in South America or Africa where winds are minimal.

Thanks. Changing to a random place in south america

The issue I see with this is that many of these aircraft could probably fly for almost a day, meaning that people would have to leave their devices AFK. If they are not there when the fuel runs out, the aircraft will nosedive and the people flying will get many violations, so in that case, the event should probably be on the casual server. Seems interesting though!

Casual it is. Trying to go by distance flown and time

I’ll take the Cessna 172.

Got it! You are cargo ramp b03 at rio

If you have already took off, I’m sort of doing the same, the route MMMX-LLBG (Mexico-Tel Aviv) which is about 16/17 hours

It is on March 3rd, if you want to sign up feel free.

Oh okay, I’ll sign up! Thinking of using 787-8 or 777-200… actually I’ll be using 777-300
