TransAtlantic Flights? If youv'e wanted to fly up through Labrador, over Greenland
and Iceland to Europe, you may like to read New
Orleans to Paris. Then there is the transatlantic route straight out to the Azores
and then to Africa. This guy did it in a Cessna 150: "Transatlantic
Cessna 150" ; and then there's a couple who flew translantic plus some
in an Aztec and wrote The
Trip. Or how about Spokane
to Geneva in a single engine turboprop, a JetPROP DLX, with a ferry

Other Airplane Stuff. Here's an October 2006 demo flight in an experimental.... the Epic LT, a 6 seat single turboprop that came to New Orleans for a visit.
