Funny- I remember the leg was in a old G4 from LOWW to HPN, 9+25, landed with approx 1700 lbs.
Wow, thats a little tight! That is the longest I have heard of a 4 doing.

Aww...the 90's. When landing with 20 minutes of fuel was an acceptable practice. ;) Kind of reminds me of Kramer in a Sienfeld episode.

No problem in a 450. If you want to stretch her out a little longer and be a man, taking her up to FL450 will definitely get ya there, even at .84.

Unfortunately the 450's are too pricey.........but let's just wait and see.........

Must be well below ISA over the N.Atl.

That and you have to be 25,000 lbs. under MTOW AND at .83 for an ISA day. AND no headwind...

EINN or KBGR for me.

what are you saying? you won't extend the range doing m84. we are talking about a g450 not a g550. please clarify
