US 4 Palin Sim Flight for Sarah Palin Legal Defense Fund

Plot Synopsis

The Sarah Palin Sim Flight for the the Sarah Palin Legal Defense fund was an online initiative, patterned after running, biking, or walking and seeking sponsors to raise money for a cause. “Laura,” a fictional retired pilot, out of Elmendorf Air Force Base took “Sarah,” a fictional character based on Sarah Palin from her home airport in Wasilla, AK to Reagan National in Washington DC in a Cessna 172 over the course of 13 flights from July 12 through July 31, 2010. Readers were called upon to “sponsor” the cost of each flight by donating to the Sarah Palin Legal Defense Fund.

US 4 Palin publisher Ron Devito conducted the flights, under Instrument Flight Rules in Microsoft Flight Simulator X using actual prevailing weather conditions at the time, though late night flights had the time of day simulated. Devito is an instrument-rated and current private pilot. The entire trip took 40.3 hours, of which 9.1 hours were in instrument meteorological conditions, and 13 were at night. Were this trip to be performed in real life for a person of Sarah Palin’s stature, the costs at minimum would be $25K, with $50K being more realistic.

The characters portrayed in the series are fictional. Any resemblance to actual persons living or deceased is purely coincidental.
