With lockdown in full force here in UK and my flight training cancelled for the foreseeable future I thought I’d start an epic journey from Cape Town, South Africa to John o’ Groats at the northern tip of Scotland. With family in Cape Town, it’s a journey I’ve done many times before albeit at 35,000 feet!
The Route: Following in the footsteps of Ewan McGregor and Charley Boreman I will be tracing the route of their motorcycle journey in Long Way Down. As the UK World update is delayed I will be doing this in reverse
Aircraft: Flight Design CTSL, the closest in performance and flight characteristics to the Skyranger Nynja I’m learning on.
Flight Rules: VFR all the way, no autopilot (even if I wanted to the CTSL wont allow it!). Live weather with adjustments to time allowed to maintain VFR.
I will be updating a Little Nav Map flight plan as I go and will keep it attached to this post.
