Decided to fly around the world in my new King Air. Ain't no way I'm getting 1800 nautical miles at 66%and 1500RPM. So I go for less distance, I'm easy. I marvel at the wonderful speaking of English by the Russian and Japanese contollers. I know english is the official language of ATC. Buy no dialect at all? Maybe When I get to China I'll hear, " Yoo wanna land Boss, We got biggee flat space." I'm just kidding of course. Any body else try heading around the world without a passport and no international clearance. East to west. It's lonely over the north pacific between Atka and Kamchatka.
