I am planning my long x-c for commercial and am going to make a trip from manassas(hef) to suffolk county(fok) on the tip of long island. I am also going to stop on my way back in republic and have lunch with grandma. Just wondering what the trip up there ifr will be like. Anyone have any advice as far as routing, delays, etc that i might expect. I would like to fly direct philly, then up to JFK, and then east on long island. Im just wondering if i am gonna get screwed trying to get through there in a c-172. Any advice is helpful.
