Hey everybody, I haven’t been active on here in a good while so cheers to new people around, good to see the community still thriving. I just wanted to announce I’ve finished a really long trip and I want to tell everyone how cool it was.
I have just finished my first “flight” since global came out last year. In October, as soon as the big update hit, I left my home airport of KSNA in a Cessna 172 with the intention of circumnavigating the world. Once I got to Saint Petersburg, though, I kind of felt like I was missing out on Europe so I backtracked all the way to Spain, and then things really went wild from there. After 42,445nm and 125 legs in my 172 through 5 continents I just landed back at KSNA to complete the thing last week, looks like a little over 9 months.
So- I didn’t get my turn to rave about global, you know since I just finished my first flight and all, so let me say this is really awesome. I highly recommend long treks in a cessna, it’s a great geography lesson and a pretty interesting challenge. Thanks to @Maxmustang for joining me for a leg or two several months ago in the maritime provinces of Canada (he nailed the landing), and a couple others who are no longer active here.
Finally, a 9-month belated thank you to Laura, Phillipe, and everyone else for making this an amazing sim.
As far as I can tell from my ipad, the world outside is quite beautiful. Don’t take it for granted.
