Our journey is prepared by using Skyvector (www.skyvector.com) in order to simulate our flightplans
Our expedition, directly form Basiy – Thy (EBBY) www.ulm.be to Oshkosh,
will be 3.563 Nm (6.599Km) and would take 30 hours of flight time
Of course, this would be impossible with our planes, the journey will be done in
several legs passing by the North.
Here is an idea we have to go by the “Big North”.
Useless to mention that this track will be modified in function of our spirit but
essentially by metrological conditions.
It is remarkable that the mission via the north extend the flight time by
only 6 hours, in fact, if we could do all tracks the flight time would be 36 hours
instead of 30 hours.
The distance traveled via this route will be 4.466.40 Nm (8.271.71 Km)
a little detour of 930.40 Nm (1674 Km).
Also this will be impossible, crews and machines need refueling, maintenance and some rest.
We propose you to look at this more detailed, by cutting our mission in several legs.
This will give you a more realistic view.
Fist leg: EBBY (Baisy-Thy) – LFAC (Calais) – DVR – EGPC (Wick)
Distance: 587 Nm (1.088Km)
Flight time: 05:04h (without the customs stop in Calais)
This first step will lead us to LFAC (Calais customs airport) where we have to clear customs
because we leave the Shengen space destination Wick.
2nd leg: EGPC (Wick) – BIRL (Reykjavic)
Distance: 639.8 Nm (1.185Km)
Flight time: 05:22 h.

3th leg: BIRL (Reykjavic) – BGKK (Kulusuk) – BGSF (Kangerlussuaq)
Distance: 736.7 Nm (1.364Km)
Flight time: 05:52 h

4th leg : BGSF (Kangferlussuaq) – CYFB (Iqaluit) – CYYR (Goose Bay)
Distance: 1.265Nm (2.344Km)
Temps de vol: 10:02 h
