    Phenom 100 from USA (FL) to Europe (Germany/France) and back

    Hi,
    This is not a trip report, is more to give you an idea of cost and some tips for your potential European trip - do it, it's fun!

    Was a great trip, first time for me in a Phenom (last time in a Cheyenne), would do again! Amazing trip.Covid complicated the trip a bit, but not too bad.

    To make the Phenom Europe ready (no HF):
    - Garmin Nav and chart kit for Europe
    - 2 suits, 1 raft
    - (1 Iridium phone)
    - 2 personal beacon's
    - Iridium Go (buy in US, flat rate subscription) and Golze App/subscription (https://www.ing-golze.de/iridiumgo.jsp) ) This gives you Weather in Foreflight (similar to ADS-B globally), Satellite phone calls, text, position tracking, email. I highly recommend this setup, even for flying in US!

    Other Prep:
    Short checklist flight to Europe:
    - Garmin Tripkit
    - Decal from this year?
    - Hotel bookings
    - Suits
    - Raft
    - Personal Emergeny Beacon in date?
    Day’s before flights:
    - Update Garmin
    - eApi
    - UK GAR
    - CAA/Worldfuel
    - Email FBO’s on trip
    Day before flight’s:
    - Covid
    o Rapid PCR test
    o ArriveCan
    o Greenland form (from Airport)
    - Print all non Foreflight airport charts
    - Call Canada border protection

    38,000/39,000: All other (also legal in Europe)

    Love this! Thanks for sharing and very insightful.

    Do you have a recommendation for whom to purchase the connectivity through in the US? They seem to talk a lot about marine and don't know if the end purpose is different?
