@ an acceleration of 1G, a minimum capability of every antigravity craft capable of getting off the ground at Earth, here are 1-way ETA’s for travel to planets within our solar system, gravity once landed and a few other metrics:

Gravity, Mass, Surface Area, and air pressure on surface are relative to Earth’s value

Offworld Mining​ must ideally be ​entirely automated​ (this is long-term credible) and includes the process of melting the elements so that they can be processed on most planets. Crew will remotely operate machinery from orbit for most planets.
