# Ballart to Bundaberg trip detals

## Recommended Posts

On the 9/10/11/12 of May 2007, 8 grown men were granted leave from their wives and girlfriends to fly from the cold Victorian autumn city of Ballarat to the tropical climes of mid northern Queensland-destination Bundaberg.

The posse of Jabirus included 2 LSA-55, J160 and J230 made its first stop at Deniliquin then Narromine, Morree, overnight Goondawindi and then Chinchilla to Bundaberg with a side trip over Fraser Island and back home to Ballarat.

Total distance 3866 kms.

The J230 took 20 hours at 20.55 LPH/411 litres-fuel cost \$758.00

The J160 took 22.6 hours at 14.9 LPH 337 litres-\$447.00 which is \$311 less for 2.6 hours more travel time.

Me thinks the calculator is telling you a furfee!

411 litres @ \$1.84 = ~\$758

337 litres @ \$1.84 = \$620

20hrs @ \$758 = \$37.90 per hour

22.6hrs @ \$620 = \$27.40 per hour

If the J230 was a J430 and had 4 people on board, you'd get a heck of a lot more bang per buck!

That would get you 4 POB to Bundaberg and return for less than \$180 each. Who said flying was expensive?

3866 Kms in your average family car would cost around \$560 and take between 2 and 3 times longer.
