Piper M600 Ferry flight from Singapore to Odense Denmark

Between June 6th, 2018 and June 10th the new owner of this Piper M600 flew a total distance of 12,673 km (great circle distance) from Singapore to Odense. 

Normally when we sell a factory new Piper, the flight sets out from the Piper factory at Vero Beach in Florida, USA. This particular aircraft, N858SG, was located in Singapore, because it had been promoting itself earlier this year at the Pacific Rim Piper M600 Demo tour, where it, amongst other destinations, circumnavigated the entire Australian continent.

The new owner had requested to join the ferry flight from Singapore to our base in Odense /EKOD, and who would not want to start their ownership of a Piper M600 with a journey one third around the world?

Flight Journey

The flight from Singapore to Odense, is 12,673 km in great circle distance, with a total of 8 flight legs and 29:07 flight hours.

Day 1

Starting out of Singapore the first leg took them up along the Gulf of Thailand to Bangkok for a brief break and refueling, before heading towards Dhaka in Bangladesh for the first night stop.

Day 2

Day 2

The second day started with heading west, going almost straight across India to refuel in Ahmedabad, India. Out of Ahmedabad they headed south, then west, crossing the Indian Ocean. Above the Indian Ocean we lost them on the tracker for a few hours, then they popped up again, just before making land over Muscat on the Arabian Peninsula. Their view changed from the Indian Ocean to the Grand Canyons of Oman and through the desserts, before reaching Abu Dhabi for a well deserved night stop after two long flight legs.

On the final day they departed Hurghada northbound, crossing the Mediterranean to Turkey and then making the mid-day fuelstop in Varna, Bulgaria. The final leg on the journey from Varna to Odense covered a distance of 1861 km and lasted 4 hrs 34 minuttes.

Behind the scenes

All the flight planning, permits and ground handling was planned and supervised by a professional flight planning company. By outsourcing the dreary task of flight planning, all they had to do was to show up at the handling agent, receive the approved flight plan with the newest weather enroute and type it into the G3000 GPS and enjoy the flight to their next destination.

What comes next?

Today this Piper M600 is in Denmark getting prepared for de-registration, and transfer of registration to its new owner.
