Combine this information with the fuel cost tool to find out how much it will cost you to drive the distance, or compare the results to the straight line distance to determine whether it's better to drive or fly. Here's the quick answer if you are able to make this entire trip by car without stopping. Realistically, you'll probably want to add a buffer for rest stops, gas, or food along the way. To get a better idea of how long this trip would really be, scroll down to calculate how many hours it would take if you drive with stops.

Now let's assume you have a private jet and you can fly in the fastest possible straight line between Toledo, Ohio and Buffalo, New York. Because of the curvature of the Earth, the shortest distance is actually the "great circle" distance, or "as the crow flies" which is calculated using an iterative Vincenty formula. The straight line flight distance is 55 miles less than driving on roads, which means the driving distance is roughly 1.2x of the flight distance. Your plane flies much faster than a car, so the flight time is about 1/4th of the time it would take to drive. This is a relatively short flight in a private plane, but you might be planning to book a commercial flight. In that case, your travel time would really need to include how many minutes to get to your local airport, wait for security, board and taxi on the runway, land at the other airport, and get to your destination. Scroll down to see a more realistic calculation that takes into account all these factors to get a more accurate estimate of your actual flight time. Let's say you're actually planning a road trip to Buffalo, and you want to stop along the way to rest. If it's a real road trip, you might want to check out interesting stops along the way, eat at great restaurants, and maybe even find a hotel to stay overnight.
