    According to skyvector.com the total distance is 557 nm.

    (KONT for Ontario and KMFR for Medford.

    Cessna airplane travels approximately 125 nautical miles per hour. Has maximum range of approximately 600 nautical miles.

    It'll take 4 hours and 45 minutes. Extra time is required as it is not possible to fly a direct path. Aircraft rental fees are approximately 130 dollars an hour.

    It will cost 580 dollars approximately.

    However there are some cheaper Cessnas that run for only 59 dollars an hour but they are usually the smallest ones with underpowered engines that cruise at 90 nautical miles per hour.

    total journey about 4-7 hrs, depends on the auxiliary tanks you have and/or how heavily you modified the engine for greater thrust, plus a sportcar (i.e. ferarri/lamborghini) from your house (where you stay) to the runway/airport AND the destination you're really going (someone's house/building/place in Medford).

    cost is around 500 to 1000 US$, depends on if you're buying just the aircraft fuel and/or renting the car/sportcar from where you stay to airport AND from the destination airport to the target place in Medford
