Aircraft, Dahrer-Socota TBM 850, passed a last minute check up, a new battery was installed and two seats removed to accommodate all our “stuff”.
Supplies: airplane oil, Prist (Jet A anti-ice fuel additive not routinely included outside North America) and aircraft cleaning solutions are ready loaded.
We have cases of bottled water, snacks (to substitute for food we may not wish to eat); our emergency survival suits and life raft (required for over water crossing); and of course wardrobes for our 73-day adventure! All packed and ready to go!
