Transatlantic TBM

Hey everyone. Have any of you ever flown the TBM transatlantic? If so, how many fuel stops did it take and did you fly the NATs?

I know that some people flew via Greenland and Iceland. I could imagine that you could also only make one stop on the Azores on a good day.

Or maybe a stop at Gander

I’ve flown it nonstop once (wouldnt recommend it, i had to glide down into goose bay).
Usually if I fly from Europe I stop at Wick, Keflavik, CYFB and then you just have to go south :)
If youre flying the other way or if theres less wind you can reduce fuel stops

Thats what I was guessing. Park it up at FL30 and coast in the breeze. Its the return trip that would be a battle.

The only way to really do it is to go via Greenland and Iceland.

Any idea what the fuel availability is in Greenland?

There’s airports, yes - what do you mean by fuel availability?

Well, I guess I could pull off runway and fuel up but if someone was to go in real life not sure each airport would have fuel

If youslow down far enough, and use enough brakes, you can land on the waterand takeoff full flaps

But u didnt hear that from me ;)

Yes I’ve done it once !
