CYNJ-CYPK, 8nm. Zero cruise time, as soon as I'm clear of Langley's zone I'm starting my approach in to Pitt Meadows.

KBLI-CYXX, 16 nm. Shortest international flight.

EHRD - EHAM
I have done the same trip several times, but it took me a bit longer. :mrgreen:

However when I was based at EHVB it was even closer to Rotterdam. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

CCN3 to Linden Airstrip. About 10nm in a 182RG... barely had the landing gear up for more than 2 minutes. The start checks and engine run-up took about twice as long as the flight!

King City to Maple < 4 nm. Lots of folks did it, especially if no gas at one or the other. But KC is now a construction equipment parking lot while Maple is a housing development. Buttonville and Downsview to follow?

From the end of the runway to where I landed: about 1100 meters
From the end of the runway to where the airplane landed: about 2500 meters

I suppose you have to be in the airplane to win the contest...?
