The Plane, aviation, and tracking

Flight Tracking

Track our progress live via the Garmin InReach GPS tracker. This device will be uploading a location point via satellite to the Garmin servers every 2 minutes.

The Aircraft

We are flying our Daher Socata TBM 930 on this journey. This is a 6 passenger, pressurized turbo-prop aircraft. 

Aviation / Navigation

There's lots to think about when flying internationally. Departure slots, landing permits, weather, and long water crossings are all interesting challenges. There are plenty of challenging procedures on this trip as well  that may be of interest to aviation geeks.

The route

This animation of the route was created in Foreflight on an iPad. It shows each airport we will be visiting. Most stops will be for 2-3 days so we can explore the area.
