Alright, I’ll set you up as soon as I can.

Ok, thanks I can’t wait

When we land on the runway how will you look at all of them, also what if it takes ages to get a landing slot, it would be unfair

What do you mean by a landing slot? I’m not racing, I’m just starting it then seeing who finishes it. I’ll post the results on the page.

Ok, never mind! Good luck everyone your going to need it! 🤣

Well, shoot. I guess there is somewhere to load up on fuel in the middle of the Atlantic!

If my calculations are right the longest ranging Jet on If is the F-14 and it can fly for 2:45 at the max so unless wind is good then you will have to stop

You have to choose speed or endurance, or a balance of both. It’s a risk that if not planned correctly can land you in the middle of the Atlantic. That’s part of the fun of the event!

Looks interesting for me. Can I use non fighter aircraft for this event?
