Here is the airline traced by Charles Lindbergh in 1931 on a Lockheed Sirius seaplane with his wife Ann.
Amphibious aircrafts with a long range are recommended, as well as GPS.
Each step / airfield is located near rivers, lakes, coastal bays or harbours, the water landing is, therefore, possible ; keep in mind that the Lockheed Sirius was not amphibious.
As far as Point Barrow (Alaska, USA), Karaginski Islands (Russia) and Nemuro (Japan), are concerned, you must:
1 / Follow, first, the GPS target (red track).
2 / The exact water landing position is indicated (refer to the simulator map).
