The Wick to BIRK is a long leg. Next I suspect is Kulusuk (BGKK) on the east coast of Greenland. Gravel strip hidden behind a mountain!. Then BGSF (Used to be Sonderstrom Fjiord. 12,000 ft over the top but not a long leg. Then maybe Iqualauit (CYFB) I would anticipate. I rode along with a ferry pilot in a Grand Caravan (C208) at around 150 kts. A long but fascinating ride. Good luck and fortune to the brave young pilot.

Here's the actual tracking link from her site. Cute idea, but not exactly what people like us are looking for. LOL... https://staging.flyzolo.com/route/

Thanks. Very useful. Looks like she will take the southern route in Greenland. Longer legs in uninhabited territory and I think requires HF radio from S Greenland to Goose Bay. We took the longer route to suit fuel capacity and not having HF radios
