Isn't 2 minutes considered kinda long for that flight? I seem to remember that it can be as short as ~45 seconds if the conditions are right

It's blocked for two minutes. Time in the air is generally 60-80 seconds. The record is 47 seconds, with a strong tailwind.

How about getting airborne on a snowmobile?
By that logic, if skydiving counts then falling off a dogsled should also count

Monmouth Executive Airport to Teterboro. Took quicker for me to fly (including travel to and from airport) to Nobos than to drive 😂

This was my quickest flight (18:45:22 in the air), but not my shortest. OGG-LNY came in shorter at 35 miles, but slower at nearly half an hour.


New shortest flight: UII-LCE, 13 minutes and 26 miles.
