Africa is calling

Postby Mark Vall » 22 Apr 2018 11:09

Another milestone reached!

Goal of this journey was simple. Take off from Prague, visit all Capital cities in Africa and return back to Prague... Sounds challenging? Hell yeah - it was :)

Flight facts:
Number of flights: 59
Distance in total: 22.404 nm
Duration: 132.4 hours
Money spent on GA flights: $v 52.859,73

Already planning for other round flight. It will be the same fun as this one, I`m pretty sure!

I flew the whole route in Diamond DA42 - not the fastest aircraft in the world

Absolutely amazing. That beats my trip around the rock they call Australia. I flew from home base VHHH and flew the clock wise route around AUS. and back to VHHH.
Well done. I am truly blown away. :)

Thank you so much for the comment, Thumper, really appreciated!

Actually my journey in GA division started with nothing smaller than flight around the world

Currently planning for "Europe Skies" event, where I would like to visit all European capital cities. The only struggle I have is definition of Europe as a continent vs political map - but I will sort it out soon for sure
