Flying from Israel to Australia

Now that I have a new joystick, I decided it's time to use it. I've started flying from Israel to Australia (no firm destination yet) in FSX (Microsoft Flight Simulator X). My instrument of choice is a Beechcraft King Air 350. I'm flying "real time", and also in real local time, i.e. if I'm at 8pm (GMT+2) and I'm at an airport located at GMT+3, I'll set the time to 9pm. So far I'm flying only at night, but I expect it to get lighter as I head east.

Here is what my progress looks like so far:

Date / Time From To Flight Time Distance (Miles)
11/08 - 21:14 LLHZ- Herzlia, Israel LTAI 1.7 393
13/08 - 20:34 LTAI - Antalya, Turkey LTCO 2.4 682
15/08 - 20:41 LTCO - Agri, Turkey UTAA 2.9 830


I'll continue to update my progress as I go,

UTAA is in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.
