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!
