How many to buy for a 1 hour flight with 2 pax?

I would say 12 to guarantee you at least 6-8 on arrival at your destination. ;) :cool:

I have found this formula to work rather well but would like to hear from the more experienced food gatherers.

Here's what I think - assume a donut consumption rate of about 3 dph per person. You as the PIC will most likely be too busy to consume donuts during taxi, takeoff, and probably the time after you're handed off from approach to tower. Therefore you'll probably only have about .7 hours of donut consumption time. By my math, that's 2 for you and 3 for each of your passengers for a total of 8.

Now, this doesn't take into account reserves should you have to divert, so maybe you might want to add a fudge factor into that.

:D

I'm begging you - DO NOT DELIVER any Krispy Kreme Donuts to Furloughed Gal - I have to fly with her and she is hyper enough! I have done everything in my power to conceal the locations of KK establishments in the area.

BigD.....Wow dude. I'm impressed. That response left an image.

The last time I had to think about this was my cargo days. The answer is 8. BUT remember. No powdered. Powdered makes a mess and slows down the consumption rate........Now I sound like BigD........Holy Pete.

New KK off Ina Rd. KTUS. Hit IT.

True story

Back before Krispy Kreme got their first Lear (aka Doughnut One), the guys flew down to Myrtle Beach Grand Strand airport in their Cheyenne. On approach when they checked with the tower, the controller asks, "Hey, do you guys have some of those hot glazed doughnuts on board?" Pilot says, "Yep." The controller then says, "Well then you're cleared to land, and please call the tower."

Dont forget the landing fee of at least 1 per person at the local FBO where you are going to be stoping. Where I work its a weekly charge for one of the corperations that stop in ;) :p

Then there was the Albuquerque police helicopter that landed across from a donut shop last year for a midnight snack

Suppose you opt for donut holes instead of donuts. Is there a formula that'll convert dph to hph?

God help you, what if you buy the donuts in Canada and get them in metric?

(I think I'd better go to bed...)
