Atlantic Crossing Route

This is the route I've chosen, with a little help from and other resources. This northern route is required for airplanes without an HF radio. If you fly at FL250 or higher, you can get better VHF coverage and can take a more southerly (and hence more direct) route. The Mooney can do FL250 but it's close to the service ceiling of FL280 and I didn't want to have to huff a ton of oxygen the entire way at that altitude to meet the requirement.


I collected as much information as I could about each stop using online information, Greenland's AIP, and by calling/emailing each airport.
