I have played around with Flight Simulator for a number of years now, never really a lot, but just for fun once in a while.
I have often thought about seeing how hard it would be to circumnavigate the globe in a small aircraft, and started out a few times to see how far I could get.
Well, I am trying again, and this time I am going to try and log my journey here. I decided to start in Hawaii, as getting from there to anywhere in a small prop job can be a challenge. My Final Destination will be the airport in Nappanee Indiana.
I am using one of the default aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator X, a Beechcraft King Air 350, that has roughly a 1700 mile range. This makes it an interesting trip due to the distance limitations. I hope it all works out.
My first leg of the journey will be a 1223 mile flight from Keahole Hawaii to the island of Kiribati. From there, we will see where it ends up.
And 1223 miles to the south:
Wish me luck on my E-Journey!
