How far can it really go? Bombardier specs say the CS300 can fly 3,300NM. That is a good distance for a small aircraft. Right now BBA508, a CS300, is on its way from Wichita, Kansas to Keflavik in Iceland – non-stop. The distance is 3,478NM.
Here we can see the flight approaching KEF. There was no announcement of this flight. It is clearly a long leg stretch. Even flying empty this is a long haul. The aircraft left Wichita at 7:57 CST this morning.
The aircraft is apparently on its way to Riga for a show to launch customer airBaltic. The CS300 has shown it has seven hours of flying time.
The flight landed at19:55 UTC, or 14:55 CST. Well done!
