If you can make Schefferville, this is a nice place to stop.
The airport has the last pumped Avgas before Iqaluit.

If you're interested in a 'slight' detour, the Light Aircraft Association is holding its annual Rally at Sywell in the UK, next Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

It's Europe's largest fly-in, and there will be plenty of RV's there.

Jim?s tracker is online, seems like he launched for his trip!
I was waiting for this first tracking point and will follow his progress with great interest.

Default Landed in Iqaluit

The -10 is an unbelievable machine. Completed the leg from CYEY to CYFB, 967nm in 5 1/2 hrs on 58 gal of fuel. Good weather almost all the way and a visual to rwy 16 to round it out. A good day...

Default Godspeed Jim!

Wish you all the best on this amazing adventure. Looks like you posted up some good numbers on that first leg. I hope that continues with blue skies and tailwinds...
