There's some numbers posted in this thread that should answer your question:

Or, if you want to play with distances from anywhere, to anywhere else, you can use Kathryn's overview tool.

Short answer: 1,310 km. :razz:

Without the Fuel Efficiency skill, a Tier 3 Halifax with an internal fuel tank, drop tanks, and medium external fuel tank (G~192,960 + 5,000 + 1,000 + 8,000 = G~206,960, 1,370 km base range) is the cheapest and lowest tier plane that can reach all skylands.

With FE 8, a Tier 2 Kittyhawk with an internal fuel tank, large internal fuel expansion, and medium external fuel tank (G~$68,640 + 5,000 + 600,000 + 8,000 = G~681,640, 1,325 km total range) can do the job, but one of those mods is nearly nine times the price of the plane, and FE8 takes 852 FP, or 426 hours of flight time, so that's more an exercise for bored players in the late game. ;)
Now taking bets: Who will be the first to fly a Kittyhawk to Grottopolis just to show he can? :remygrin:
