DCA World Rally 2012 Leg 4: Torp (ENTO) to Leirin (ENFG)


Recommended Posts

The fourth World Rally flight is another late afternoon flight, this time in Norway, and is mostly navigation by NDB with some VOR. The route first takes us in a North Easterly direction and eventually North West to terminate at Leirin, Norway.

The distance is about 190nm and flight time will be approximately one-hour and twenty minutes. This is a VFR (Visual Flight Rules) flight, so keep those eyes open! Here's the Flight Plan from Plan-G

(Thanks Tim!):
