View Full Version : Need Private Pilot Help For Flight Planning

12-16-2014, 10:28 PM
Characters are going to be flown from Bullhead City, AZ (KIFP) to a smaller airport near Charleston, SC. Not picky, but it won't be the big airport. Charleston Exec or Mt Pleasant Regional is fine. So is Lowcountry Regional. They've been offered this private flight to make it harder for the bad guys to track them.

Aircraft is a Mitsubishi MU-2L or Marquise. Maybe a Super King Air, but I really like the looks of the Mitsu. I knkwo about teh safety issues with the Mitsu, too.

I know there will be a fuel stop somewhere. Where might someone stop?

Basically I need to be able to do a few paragraphs about this flight, but don't need a crap-ton of detail. Just about half a crap-ton.

The Pilatus PC12 and the Socata TBM 900 are a lot more popular and much cooler than the Mitsu, imho.

Anywhere that's around half-way would do, if the place has jet fuel and any airport of any size would. If it has to be clandestine, the airplane will happily run on just about anything resembling kerosene, though. Diesel fuel or home heating oil will do it, though it's not recommended. You need someplace with adequate runway length, but that airplane doesn't use a lot of runway and there are dozens of airports in the area you need (Kansas, Texas, Missouri) that would have at least one runway that's over 3,000 feet.
By the way, that airplane is referred to as the 'Moo-too' by a lot of pilots.
