That flight would require major ferry tanks! Thats not for time building.


#3

That’s a long time to be sitting in a Bonanza!


#4

Especially with everything from the cockpit back full of fuel tanks.

We used to tank a lot of planes back in the 80s and 90s for Atlantic and Pacific flights.

Takes a special person to do those kind of flights.


#5

Someone who can keep themselves entertained for hours on end.


#6

I can only hope it’s not a solo flight :wink:


#7

hope he brought a johnny can


#8

FlightAware on his iphone and he can go to Japan without getting bored. :laughing:


#9

I don’t know about the Pacific but over the Atlantic I’ve found that the cell phone tower at 58N, 30W just doesn’t cut it. Kind of a sinking feeling when you go by and nobody answers.

What kind of coverage, if any, would be between California and Hawaii?


#11

none, just ragging on Will. That is the sport du jour around here.

That’s a Bill Cox special! Definitely not the kind of time building I’d want - flying over open ocean alone - and if building time, then definitely inexperienced in something like that too.
