The END, Part I -- Free Propellers

After a long gap that allowed us to participate in this month's FG Festival in SEAsia, The USA tour re-engages for the last two events, that will conclude a five-year oddissey that joined main airports of each Largest City for each State and Territory of The U.S.A.

On March 2017, after a 2 day flight, we concluded the longest tour, the pilots completed a trans-pacific flight from Northern Marianas, the Westernmost location of the tour in the East hemisphere, to Portland, Main, the Easternmost location of the tour in the West hemisphere, and doing so, completing the longest tour, both in time as in distance.

Now, I invite you all to join us to bid farewell to the USA Tour. The End occurs in 2 clausuring events: The first part to occur this May 27th. We will depart our last arrived Portland Jetport (KPWM) and we will travel the Northeast coast to the final State required to be visited: Once we arrive to Virginia, the list would be complete and we would have arrived at least once to each State and/or territory.

Aircrafts

FREE propellers

In order to succesfully participate in the USA Tour segment 55th, pilots are invited to choose any propeller aircraft. No further restrictions.

I am proposing a cruising speed of about 175KTS, but if your propeller of choice needs a different speed we welcome you to freely adjust your conditions of flight

Let us know which aircraft or aircrafts are you planning to join with,

Per popular request we will bring this tour of the leg to the regular FG servers. Hopefully we can show a very nice populated event, and maybe meet new friends
