Does anyone out there know of any pilot daring enough to have flown to Bermuda from the east coast in a single engine airplane? I know they don't offer avgas on the island but perhaps auxiliary/portable tanks could have been carried in the back for the return trip. Or perhpas someone's taken a turbine centurion out there or a pilatus (jet-a props). From Ocean city Maryland (KOXB) at 624 nms, the flight would be about 3.5 to 4 hrs in a high performance single, so well within the range of say a topend Mooney or Cirrus. It would be a thrill to reach the island in such a way and I am considering doing it later in life (I love the island). Just wondering if anyone's beat me to it. I'm sure if they offered avgas on the island it would have been done before. Perhaps they don't offer avgas just to discourage pilots from taking their singles to the island. Comments?
