2022 Soaring Summary

The map below shows traces from 66 cross country flights in my ASG29 during 2022, totaling 27923 miles or 44,873 km (which is 10% more than the earth circumference!), and 438 hours, averaging 423 miles (680 km) per cross country flight, at an average speed of 64 mph.  The flights spanned from the Canadian border to the Mexican border, covering most of California, Nevada, Utah, Washington, Idaho, including visits to Oregon, Wyoming and Arizona.  During those trips I visited 20 airports (planned and unplanned), and 1 farm field in the Cuyama valley. 

This was my most successful soaring year by many measures.
