Welcome to Cape Town, Bill!

Updated: Dec 16, 2019

After 28 hours 41 minutes, Bill has landed in Cape Town, South Africa. With only a few weather and altitude deviations to avoid winds and icing conditions, his flight went well. He had the full moon and ZQGC to keep him company.


This is quite an endurance challenge. Tomorrow's flight to San Juan, Puerto Rico, will be closer to 30 hours 30 minutes. With a cruising speed of 190 knots, 10 knots of wind changes his flight time by an hour and a half.


The record is an average speed, derived from the declared distance divided by the cumulative time. His rest breaks reduce his total speed around the world. We estimate that it's been 108hrs and 25 minutes to Cape Town.


Go Bill!
