Farmer Posted December 11, 2011 Report Share Posted December 11, 2011 I want to start by thanking everyone involved in the recent Page flyin. It was my first event with this Flight Design family and it was great. I am new to Flight Design, but not new to travel. This past summer my wife I and visited twenty six States, in about five weeks with our new CTLS N413F. We visited both coasts of our great nation in about 100 hours of flight time. This next summer I was hoping to make it all the way to the artic circle in Alaska. I have driven the Dalton Highway north of Fairbanks to the artic ocean, but a flight to Nome, Barrow and beyound would be spectular. The Brooks range is one of a kind. Best done is early to mid summer I think. That should give long days, clear sky, and the very best weather. I am in the early stage of planning of the trip, which is very possible in out Light Sport aircraft. With no medical, and an over flight of Canada, there is one leg of about 500nm. The other option, that is used by some, is to put a pilot in the rigth seat for that single leg. With that option the longest leg of the trip woould not need to be more than two hours. We would be landing in Canada with that option. This will not be a wild and dangerour flight, as there are many airport every hour or so during the entire trip. Plenty of stops for expensive avgas and of course even more options for mogas. The route would not require flying over water, out of gliding distant from land. It is my plan to sleep in a warm bed each evening. I will carry a Sat phone with internet connection, in case we need to order pizza. The reason for this post, is that if there are others out there who might be thinking about this type of trip I would love to join a small group, traveling together, with a common goal of adventure. I have traveled around most of Europe in an RV, incuding several motorhome trip to such places as Moscow Russia, in small groups. I have a sponsor that will cover all the fuel cost for this trip no matter how many aircrafts. That sponsor will help with any expense like flying in a spare tire or cover cost of an oil change for anyone needing mid trip help. I do not think that there is any fees to worry about for boarder crossing and landing. This trip is in the early planning stages, hoping for 2012 is the current goal. If you would like to talk about this planned trip, or one of you past adventures, I can be reached at 8086882892, or 8082165080 or email@example.com or Larry Jefts po box 27 Kunia, Hawaii 96759. Best wishes for an exciting 2012. Larry Jefts Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
