Story:
(Click for details:)
10 months , leaving airplane 5 times for 4-8 weeks each at intermediate airports:
LOAN oil change, RJOY, NZAR oil change, NSTU prop hit and repair,
PHTO headwinds
Remarks: 2-3 years of conceptualizing and planning made it more enjoyable.
Made detours to get to places we wouldn’t get otherwise.
Had to change route about 10 times for reasons of weather, sickness,
prop damage, landing and handling charges (Easter Island-Chile,
original plan, was changed to Hawaii-US) ….
Stay flexible!
JetA was a great plus, many stops had no AvGas, or only on order.
The added security of a twin kept peace of mind on overwater flights:
I would have reached land even if I had one engine fail in the middle
of my 2020 nm Pacific crossing
