KBLI-CYXX, 16 nm. Shortest international flight.

Always fly a stable approach - it's the only stability you'll find in this business

EHRD - EHAM
I have done the same trip several times, but it took me a bit longer. :mrgreen:

However when I was based at EHVB it was even closer to Rotterdam. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

CCN3 to Linden Airstrip. About 10nm in a 182RG... barely had the landing gear up for more than 2 minutes. The start checks and engine run-up took about twice as long as the flight!

King City to Maple < 4 nm. Lots of folks did it, especially if no gas at one or the other. But KC is now a construction equipment parking lot while Maple is a housing development. Buttonville and Downsview to follow?

From the end of the runway to where I landed: about 1100 meters
From the end of the runway to where the airplane landed: about 2500 meters

I suppose you have to be in the airplane to win the contest...?

Ah c'mon. It's 6nm If you can go 07-10 or 28-25.

It's always been a point of pride to rip it as fast as possible, and while doing cargo only I've hammered it pretty damn good, but
math means you did 280 kts point to point.

Sounds a little like the fish I once caught but if you did 90 sec, holy shit! ;)
