A330 routes include New York, Chicago and Montreal towards the western hemisphere.

Towards the south its Cairo, Doula and Yaounde (Cameroon), Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam.

To the east its Tel Aviv, Dubai and Muscat, Dehli and Mumbai.

Right now there are also some flights to the Maldives, hope to catch one of them.

With stay, I presume? Sounds nice.

Have to add a STUCK-WING Cessna 207 to my list ! ! ! !

Haven't flown anything with non-moving airfoils in at least 5 years. Not the prettiest landing but considering I haven't flown fixed wing and never flown a 207..... ::whistle::

WAIT!! WAAAAAIT!!!

It was a Cessna 206!!!

Sorry my fixed wing friends.... not up to speed on that stuff........  ::sick::
(Chuck doesn't fly one either....)
 ;D

What's wrong with the Cessna 207?  ;)

207 (up north they're referred to as the "Sled") is basically a stretched 206.

Not in Montreal, but my trips have the potential to overlap with your north american destinations.

nothing wrong with a 207

Sorry, I was a bit tired and thought you meant you WANTED to add it to your list, not that you flew it!

Not many yet (I've got into aviation very recently), but here we go:

-Aero Boero AB-115 (I bet you guys never heard about this one!)
-Piper Arrow (PA-28R)

Also:

Maule MX-7-180 "Star Rocket" (with conventional gear, very nice to fly)
Piper Cherokee (PA-28-140)
Piper Saratoga (PA-32R) (I was really surprised by the punch of the engine during takeoff, almost felt like a turboprop)
Behold, the only three phrases a co-pilot is ever allowed to say: "nice landing, captain"; "it was the wind, captain"; "the fat girl is mine, captain".
