10.8 Hour Flight Time Lapse

Figure I would share what we flew the other day. Of course we made two quick fuel stops but the final time ended up being 10.8 hours in the logbook. This was a lot of fun doing it in the 182.

Hell ya dude! I always file for an altitude that will allow me to slice right through those beautiful clouds (just after departure). What a cool idea to do a time lapse! Sweet vid!

Stop for fuel and potty break two times. What is the range on that Cessna if you wanted to stretch is legs with no stops? That was a great video. Thanks for posting.

Believe the range is about 6 hours. We generally flew 3.2 to 3.8 legs. It was a first for me to do this sort of flight. Had to dodge multiple storms, do a holding pattern at one airport, had a departure procedure and deal with a 9000 DA at Santa Fe.

I really enjoyed the video. I could see you navigating around the storms. What a great experience.

Its nice to have Sirius Radio and Weather on board. That helped a lot! Plus ATC helped us out.

182 is one of Cessna's best aircraft for sure. Nice handling, roomy, and useful load of "whatever you can fit inside it", with a VERY reliable engine.

This was a 2001 model and we fit three adults and all my luggage which was probably close to 75 lbs and she flew just fine. Just lay off on the full flap landings. Found that the heavier Cessnas only need two notches of flaps. I gotta say I am spoiled with the equipment that is in the inside. I am really wanting to buy the stratos for my iPad for when I am in planes without all of these cool features

Yeah I've never liked full-flap landings in anything bigger than a 172, but then I DESPISE the current trend of flat, drag it in under power, landing approaches I'm seeing taught today. I've always used the "Where will I land if the engine fails" method..
