I was at JAX when he landed....his flight lasted 38:40 and he landed with 6 gallons of fuel.Also, he was alone on the flight and told me that he did not sleep during the flight!

"N6ZQ is a Lancair IV that we are currently building specifically for an around the world over both poles flight."

Over heard somewhere North of HNL, "why won't you men ever stop to get directions?
jgmeyer
In two weeks, he flew three non-stops -- Indiana to Hawaii, Hawaii to Guam and Guam to Jax. I think we would all be interested in a lot more details; kit mods, fuel considerations, overall voyage planning, etc.

Here's a closer track of his progress.. this will help knowing everything is OK on the long overwater legs where the FAA & F/A can only guess at his location, altitude & speed.

So, I guess he lost his wife somewhere over the Yucatan ? Well, if he was alone and didn't sleep he is unbelievable.I hope he cut some deals before the flight for some sponsoring income from Red Bull, No-Doz, Lancaire, and whoever manufactured the fuel guage. There's some worthwhile commercial stuff here.

LOL, My father told me stories about fighter pilots in pre-ejector-seat times, where to get out you just flew inverted, undid the seatbelt, and literally fell out. In this case it must've been late in the flight, though, 'cos it'd be hard to close the canopy/window again and it'd be cold, but maybe that's how he stayed awake!
HunterTS4
you forgot the part of slamming the stick forward with your feet after you roll inverted....to gently expedite your cockpit departure! ha
loganms
He did not take anything to stay awake. Had them with him but did not get sleepy.

See av photos for n6zq from a month ago at 4R9. Bill is in the red.

Tell us your fuel bill totals for the trip please!

Awesome! I know this is a special kit built but Lancair/Columbia/Cessna are great platforms. I have taken a long cross country in the plane Eric Lindbergh flew to France and flown 400's since their inception and they are awesome. The kit built side and production side are from the same Lance N. roots and continue to shine.

Where is the aircraft n number so we can see the flight on FlightAware? I knew it left Ormond Beach recently to head out to Guam after a few stops.

What a butt busting flight this must have been, I feel the pain just thinking about it!

check his website
unclebigpete
Slightly misleading journalism I think, as he was on his own wasn't he?
209flyboy
Was that a Lancair 4P?
devsfan
That's just about the limit of human endurance. Amazing.

Average around 9.1gph
209flyboy
His fuel burn was probably 13-14 gph
loganms
NO, we did the math when he got home on Sunday, it was 9.1gph.
mpradel
My calculations say it would take about 35 hours.. is FlightAware having trouble with flight times longer than 24 hours?

30 plus hours, over Mississippi now
josephjames11
I'd really like to know more details. There's got to be better coverage on this somewhere.

"Say, you know if this happens I'm going to die; it's a very real possibly. But this is my form of adventure and I think it's a necessary part of life."......AMEN!!!!
guymed03
What a great plan and well performed. And 39 hours sitting next to your wife should get honorable mention - true love. So many things to overcome but he did it. WOW.
loganms
He was alone on the flight with 361 gallons of fuel. No room for anything or anyone else.

Does anyone know if he made it to JAX. Flightaware says result unknown, and if so how long was his flight.
w7psk
So what was the result? FA lost him over the pacific
w7psk
Found the results in a Jacksonville Newspaper.

IM just curious to know how he sleeps!!!

39 hour test flight of a homebuilt plane

More about the builder and pilot of the Guam to Florida Lancair - he is just getting started

The Man in the Lancair is at it again

Looks like he left Guam after a short nap and is now on his way to Jacksonville

Lancair flight exceeds FlightAware capability

Flight tracking was unable to cope with this 39 hour 8,100 sm flight.
(I expect that to be fixed in the next software update.)
