From Oakland, California to Howland Island

The circumstances surrounding Amelia Earhart's disappearance during her World Flight remain a mystery. On July 2, 1937, she and navigator Fred Noonan vanished after leaving Lae, New Guinea, for tiny Howland Island in the central Pacific Ocean. This charter gives you the chance that Amelia never had, to land at Howland Island and refuel for the next leg to Hawaii.

The charter is available in three options - Option 1 is a twenty-nine flight charter to mirror Earhart's actual route, and contains no navigation aids. Option 2 is similar, but each destination contains a low powered NDB to aid in locating the aerodrome. Option 3 is one hundred and seven flights which are designed to shorten the leg times. Each Option contains all the necessary files including flight details, scenery and pertinent weather for the Lae to Howland Island leg. All options are contained within the download file.

Please note that the FS2002 version has somewhat less capability than the FS2004 version.
