driving time flagstaff to Grand Canyon

The Park Service lists the distance between Flagstaff and GC NP as 81 miles. But what is that in actual driving time? What are the roads like?

And -- how early would l have to leave GC (staying at Kachina lodge) to make a 10:00 AM flight out of FLG? Would it make more sense to spend the night before in Flagstaff?

This is a late August trip so there will be lots of daylight.

Thanks

You can judge for yourself, here's a 90 second timelapsed dashcam video (from Flagstaff to Tusayan):

As the a/p is south of Flagstaff and you are in a hurry suggest to take 64 to Williams and I40 east to I17. The video shows the route via Red Mountain on 180 and you'll have to drive through Flagstaff then with trafficlights etc.
