Not gonna lie, that idea had crossed my mind, since seeing the Goodyear Blimp mod on the forums.
I have a zeppelin in my FSX hanger. While it’s not the fastest out there, cruising at 65 knots 24 hours a day does make a lot of head way.
So, has anyone else opened skyvector yet?
I have…and the routing options are quite daunting for this trek… especially if you plan to fly something small.
This is a quick and dirty general routing from Austin, Texas.
I might actually be able to do this trek. It looks like my December Pilatus school might be getting moved due to a few month delay in our aircraft being delivered. That would suit me just fine…
Yeah know it’s funny, with the exact same start, I had a completely different route in mind:
J/K I am debating going down to South America and then hoping across the Atlantic in one long leg.
The main issue is what to fly (both AC and sim). It’s shame the hanger in MSFS doesn’t have better options.
That would be an interesting route, but nearly 4000nm longer and with a prevailing headwind.
I’m toying with the idea of using both sims. I have the excellent TBM900 for X-Plane, and then I could switch over to MSFS for the areas I don’t have scenery for (ie Africa and most of Europe)… but the TBM is kind of boring. I’m also thinking that I could fly the whole trip in the JustFlight Vulcan in X-Plane. I’ll have to give it some thought.
