Default 4800 nm. in an RV-10

This trip began at the Waterloo Regional airport in Breslau Ontario Canada CYKF, this is where I keep my airplane and is close to my hometown of Guelph ON.

This was a fantastic trip and with 3 of us on board and lots of luggage the airplane performed flawlessly, even took it as high as 16000' and still got a TAS of 157 kts.

I have posted lots of photos from this trip on my Phanfare web album here

Default Looks like fun!

I'm jealous, but inspired. I've gotta get out of this office and back into my shop!

Congrats on your trip, Ivan! I just did a North Carolina to Washington State flight in a Stinson and had a fantastic time as well. I think everyone should do a really long trip at least once; what an amazing experience.
