Ovation is the right plane. Good luck.

Lol. I loved my Ovation, but not enough to start around the world.

This is great. I wish there was a greater spirit of exploration, determination and adventure among young people today. Instead of sitting home playing a video game like most 20 year olds, he's organized this trip and undertaking the adventure of a life time. Haters = jealous. Lindy was barely 25 when he landed in France.

Buy me a Mooney. I'll fly it wherever you want.

if i had a rich father who could bankroll my flying dreams, or any of my dreams for that matter, then i too would be a 20 year old flying around the world.

My point is, that not everyone is afforded the luxuries of a leisurely life. that doesn't mean we're all lazy and hateful.

"For example, his biggest flight challenges will be deciding whether the plane has enough fuel to reach his destination and whether to take off in inclement weather, he said."

I think someone with 600hours is only asking for trouble doing this sort of thing. Just my two sense

777 is a good choice. Chip can you have your dad contact me Eddie edderoyal@cox.net?

I hope he knows the risks going into this, some of the statements he says isn't convincing. If he closely checks the weather, brings survival gear, and stays close to land, he should be okay. June is the best time to cross the Atlantic.

600 hours...??? Previus international experience...??? Of course I was crazy when 20 years old, less than 180 hs flyied, taked-off from Cessna Delivery Center in a 182 Skylane and soloed flyied 4.400 miles to South, crossing low altitude the chilean Andes included, and landed in my country after totalized 52 hours 38 mins. Last trip was 6 hours 17 min...sufficient fuel for a "zippo" lighter...
*Please... let the boy do it, good conseils must be better... Are you FAA officer...?

in 1969 worked on a gyro-copter for a guy with too much money and not enough brains that was going to fly it around the world... ever try to mount a radio and transponder on one? anyway.. had it all arranged so he would take off and land on boats in the ocean... looney tunes... eventually, his mother took away his cash - someone ought to do the same here

Has he ever conducted an international flight before?

Have you? Is that a prerequisite to conducting another and another after that?
