Austria to USA in a DA62

By: Deanna Wallace, CFIIM and International Ferry Pilot My list of “rules” regarding international ferry flying is growing. The number one rule, as presented to me by Joe Casey on my very first international ferry trip, is “always stay flexible”…and boy, has that one been put to the test on numerous occasions.

Tahiti Ferry Flight

It seems I’ve been picked to fly some pretty incredible ferry flights lately. In the last 45 days I flew a King Air to China, another to India and, most recently, a King Air 350 from Tahiti back to the USA. To illustrate how much I’ve been traveling, I set foot on 21 countries in…
