Hi folks,

Just wanted to share what I've been doing with the newest addition to my fleet. I'll start with the route endpoint map so far:

Had to sidestep to Toronto because Rush. Been averaging roughly 150 knots groundspeed at 9,000' MSL for the majority of this trip. :)

Quite ambitious! Interesting flightplanner map. What are you using?

I just used Skyvector to map out the endpoints on a stop-by-stop basis (not the actual IFR routes). I've done transatlantic crossings in FSX before with non-A2A aircraft (I have a wonderful four-seater turboprop pusher by Tim 'Piglet' Conrad that cuts a lot of the tedium out of flying over that much open water!) but this is the first really huge trip I've taken in A2A hardware and I wanted it to be a good one. :)

I've got screenshots I'm organizing for this. I'll start posting them soon. :)

Hi Folks,

Nice route - if you don’t have it ORBX has all of Iceland as a freebie - might make that stop more interesting...

Regards,
Scott

I picked that up a while ago -- unfortunately every time I've gone through Iceland it's been hard IFR both ways. Maybe on the way back westbound I'll hit some luck.

Speaking of Orbx, I picked up OpenLC Europe yesterday. Now I have to re-take all of the European shots I took on the way out. :roll: I'll wait until after my big trip is done -- I went as far south and east as Santorini and currently am on my way back to central Europe via Croatia.

Consider this me carrying on. :)

I reflew the Atlantic crossing in the 182 starting from a location near Houston in Texas. This time I kept track of Hobbs time, tach time, fuel used, prices (whenever available, some fudged) and taking into account A2A's proclivity towards throwing real life into the mix.

Here are the numbers so far:

I must admit I'm very curious to see how well the Comanche fares with the same trip. :twisted:
