Default US to Brazil in an RV-9A

Hi Folks,

Our trip is coming up in a month. We are heading south from Madison, WI to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and plan to have a blast. I'll be posting updates in this thread and videos on YouTube.

Default Good Luck and Clear Skies!

Will be following closer your flight plan.
Learn from that and maybe do it one day.
From Rio to my hometown would be just about another 1 1/2 hours on the RV.

Default Nice trip

Looking like an excellent adventure. Think you may be a bit ambitious on your turn and burn times once you leave North America and find they are all on island time but its vacation time so who cares. Good luck, will we watching posts.

Blue skies.
