About this route:

A direct, nonstop flight between Rentschler Heliport (EHT), East Hartford, Connecticut, United States and Bunbury Airport (BUY), Bunbury, Western Australia, Australia would travel a Great Circle distance of 11,702 miles (or 18,832 kilometers).

A Great Circle is the shortest distance between 2 points on a sphere. Because most world maps are flat (but the Earth is round), the route of the shortest distance between 2 points on the Earth will often appear curved when viewed on a flat map, especially for long distances. If you were to simply draw a straight line on a flat map and measure a very long distance, it would likely be much further than if you were to lay a string between those two points on a globe. Because of the large distance between Rentschler Heliport and Bunbury Airport, the route shown on this map most likely appears curved because of this reason.

Try it at home! Get a globe and tightly lay a string between Rentschler Heliport and Bunbury Airport. You'll see that it will travel the same route of the red line on this map!

Facts about Rentschler Heliport (EHT):

  • The closest airport to Rentschler Heliport (EHT) is Hartford-Brainard Airport (HFD), which is located only 2 miles (3 kilometers) SW of EHT.
  • In addition to being known as "Rentschler Heliport", another name for EHT is "CT88".
  • Because of Rentschler Heliport's relatively low elevation of 48 feet, planes can take off or land at Rentschler Heliport at a lower air speed than at airports located at a higher elevation. This is because the air density is higher closer to sea level than it would otherwise be at higher elevations.
  • The airfield, which began operations in 1931, was named after Frederick Brant Rentschler, who founded the aircraft arm of Pratt & Whitney and later founded its current parent company, United Technologies.
  • The furthest airport from Rentschler Heliport (EHT) is Margaret River Airport (MGV), which is located 11,752 miles (18,913 kilometers) away in Margaret River, Western Australia, Australia.
  • As of 2006, the only remaining aviation use on the site was the Rentschler Heliport, a private facility operated by Pratt & Whitney.

Facts about Bunbury Airport (BUY):

Wade International Airport (BDA), which is nearly antipodal to Bunbury Airport (meaning Bunbury Airport is almost on the exact opposite side of the Earth from L.F. Wade International Airport), and is located 12,364 miles (19,898 kilometers) away in Ferry Reach (near Hamilton), Bermuda.
  • Bunbury Airport (BUY) currently has only 1 runway.
  • Because of Bunbury Airport's relatively low elevation of 53 feet, planes can take off or land at Bunbury Airport at a lower air speed than at airports located at a higher elevation. This is because the air density is higher closer to sea level than it would otherwise be at higher elevations.
  • In 2009, the airport received funding through the Western Australian Government's Regional Airports Development Scheme to extend the parallel taxiway by 700 m so arriving aircraft would no longer be required to turn around and taxi on the active runway to reach the apron area.
  • With increasing interest in ultra-light and general aviation, there is a potential for Bunbury Airport to become a major general aviation airport.
