FastEddieB Posted September 17, 2012 Report Share Posted September 17, 2012 Well, Kool Karen and I are now committed (or should be!) We have reservations and plan to attend the CT Page flyin in our Sky Arrow. This would be the longest crosscountry we’ve attempted in the Sky Arrow. Many years ago I flew to both Page and Bullfrog Basin in my Tiger (from Florida). The plan is to leave Copperhill, TN on or about Sunday, Oct. 14. That gives us four days to get there. The Sky Arrow does about 100k, so we have a total of 14 hours or so of flying time. This will be my first crosscountry since repitching my prop flatter, so until I get a handle on fuel consumption we’ll probably plan about 200 nm legs assuming 6 gph and my 18 gal capacity. Here’s the proposed route (more or less): So... Open to suggestions on... 1) Where to stop for the night 2) Places with MOGAS or stops where we might get MOGAS conveniently (91 octane or higher) 3) Other routing suggestions 4) Anyone wanting to hook up to fly together part way (if you can fly that slowly!) In addition, if anyone has slightly out of date sectionals, I’m going to need: Memphis, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Albuquerque, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Denver. I'll pay for postage or buy you a beer or something down the road. I don’t need current ones, since we’ll have two iPads with WingX7Pro and a current db in our 496 - so these are just for planning and emergency backup. Thanks guys - I’m sure I’ll have other questions/request and I’m open to suggestions! Hope to see you guys soon! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
