Flight Planning

20 Sep

I’ve spent the last few days looking over some WAC charts of the USA… I want to have a general idea of the trip to OSH before I go just to see how I can break it up. I don’t want to spend any more than about 2.5 hours in the plane on any one day and want to be well and truely parked up.. preferably in the hotel by mid-day. That will give us the afternoon to look around and the evening to plan the following day or maybe stay an extra day if we really feel like it.

That breaks it up into a 5 day trip which is great so then if we allow 7  we should be very comfortable and have an enjoyable trip.

The trip back will be a bit more fluid. At this stage I’m thinking southerly routing to get to OSH and Northerly to get home.

Also for all the planning I’ve been trying out various iPad apps. Many need subscriptions so I’m leaving that until October so I will only need to buy one yearly subscription for each app.

I also needed to arrange a DUATS account. I got that today but I think there is either something wrong with the Site or it has security to disallow using the site from overseas which I guess in understandable. I managed to get hold of CSC for that but DTC seem to be uncontactable.. no issue I guess.

I live in New Zealand with my lovely wife Vicki along with our animals on a block of land in Helensville. Back in 1994 I had this crazy idea to build a plane. Since then its been a huge part of my life. My day job has varied over the years. I started out as a computer engineer and now I'm an airline pilot. You would think that would tire me of flying but airline flying isn't really flying. The small planes are fun and make me remember why I started flying in the first place. This blog is a demonstration of some of the crazy ideas that pop into my head from time to time. The way I see it, life is too short to not give these wild ideas a go. I don't mind if people think I'm crazy. I probably am.
