Join 400 Knot Club

400 kts is something to brag about!

Even an experienced aviator needs the right combination of air speed, altitude, flight direction, gross weight and ... of course ... a great tailwind!

Here's our honor roll of 400+ kts flights, aircraft and pilots.

Think you qualify? Send a photo of your GPS, name, date, aircraft registration and location (route, FIR, etc.) to flight only, please.)
