This page shares flight plans and screen captures from a virtual round-the-world plane trip. The trip visited all continents and oceans of the world, major cities, landmarks, and world heritage sites.
Some highlights: seeing the volcanic peaks of Oregon and Seattle, glaciers of Alaska, and the beautiful Alleutian Islands leading to eastern Russia.
This is Segment 01 of the thirteen segments of the trip. To go to the home page, or the previous or next page, click one of these text links.
This segment departs from my hometown of Austin, Texas, USA. The trip crosses the Rocky Mountains, heads up the coast of Canada and Alaska, then heads out along the Alleutian Islands to Russia.
The first few legs are rather short as I learn to fly the Daher TBM 930 plane and utilize the Garmin navigation equipment more proficiently. The basic route is to head to the northwest, up along the Canadian coast, and west to the Alleutian Islands of Alaska.
The last leg of this plan changed as I changed the leg from Casco Cove Cgs (PATU) USA to Yelizovo (UHPP) RUS (531nm) to add on another hop to Zonalnoye (UHSO) RUS (another 599nm). I discovered a day flight of 1,130nm is no problem for the Daher 930 TBM.
