New Tour Launch - Transatlantic Prop Hopper


Fly UK is pleased to announce the launch of a brand new Class E+ tour that has been put together by UKV1452 - Thomas Agnew.

The new tour, Transatlantic Prop Hopper will take you from our ATR base in Southampton to Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, as part of a 6 leg route, visiting some interesting airports along the way. Keeping with a regional airport theme throughout; Teterboro Airport is the main reliever airfield outside of the ‘Big Three’ (JFK, Newark and La Guardia). Of course, we recommend that you take up the challenge of flying the route in the ATR 72-500, but jet aircraft will also be allowed.

Many commented that with the Christmas holidays coming up, they would have a lot of spare time in and around the big days. With that in mind, take your family to see Santa in Iceland and then see in the New Year in the city that never sleeps. Remember to bring your sleeping bags for the sleepover in Greenland!


Eligible Aircraft:
Obviously with the name of the tour, we recommend that you fly the tour flying a prop, so the ATR 72-500. Although, it would be unfair of us to expect everybody to fly a particular aircraft. Therefore, we have added a few more aircraft that you would not normally see making an Atlantic crossing:
  • A320-232, B737-800, B737-700, F-100, and the ERJ-170.

Tour Award:
Any members that complete all 6 legs will be awarded the Transatlantic Prop Hopper award!

If you are planning to fly the tour whilst participating in this event, please reply to the event post so we have an idea of attendance numbers.

Enjoy. Happy Flying!
