the range of a cessna 404 titan at 20,000 feet is something over 3000 NM.

Which is worth 30 hours at 100KIAS

Cessna Titan Max speed is 232knots.

Max range is 3410 Km = 2118.876miles.

KBOS>EIDW = 2591miles according to FS.You had to refuel somewhere my friend. Dont Know

Dont take it as an offensive post.If you manage to do it you worth my Congratulations. Wink

You're going to fall into the ocean........

In flight sim you can stretch the range of an aircraft beyond what would be considered safe in real life. I've done some over-ocean flights in the Lear that would not have been possible (or at least not prudent) in real life, based on FS09's estimate of maximum range.

Of course, once I ran out of fuel while taxiing to parking. . . Embarassed Uh, can I get a tow here, please? Laughing

Yeah, it's quite a silly thing to do.

Ummm, I chartered a Cessna 404 Titan from Jacksonville to St. Croix after hurricane Hugo and that one had no facilities. We stopped on Provo in Turks and Caicos Islands to refuel and relieve bladders. So, what did you do?

crossing the ocean in a small twin piston-engine aircraft with no restrooms on board. 12 hours of "holding it in"

...not my kind of thing, lol.
