Finally reach 6021:08 Hours of Virtual flight time

Post by sac601 » 08 Oct 2008, 20:32

I finally reach 6021:08 Hours of Virtual flight time. These number are mostly because I fly long flight. It feel great to have more than 6000 hours flying times.

I have 144:11 hours, and have been here since 1/19/04 (DANG, that's almost five years!!! :shocked: ). If it weren't for my management hours from that time when I was Aircraft Developer, my flight to Franklin, PA on Gulfstream Int'l last week would've made my hours up to the triple digits.

Why so little? I fly routes that you could very well just drive to your destination :mrgreen: With the exception of the rare long-haul here and there. Plus, I only fly a couple times a month since I spend 99.99999% of FSX messing with repaint and FSX contact point tests. I need a life.

I've also seen a decline in my hours recently. On my new PC, which I built to run FS9 smoothly on, I have probably flown four real flights. I seriously need to take a weekend and fill it with flights to get me back into my previous ways.

Congrats on the 6000 mark.

Wow and I thought I'd flown a TON.

Impressive and congrats!

I guess I could have piloted ultra-long-hauls like Air Canada's ZSPD-CYYZ (with more than 6,000 NM it's an ultra-long-haul in my book) but I couldn't risk being ousted from VATSIM for such a thing. I control a TON in VATSIM; I cannot run the risk of being banned from the network for something I have done while piloting. And I don't want to go back to offline piloting because I know it's more unrealistic than anything online. It also explains why I don't pilot much. :oops:

My next long-haul: ACA183 CYUL-CYVR (it's actually at my own long-haul lower threshold of 2,000 NM, my upper threshold being 6,000 NM) and followed by CYVR-RJAA, JAL17. I actually have the time to do these only because it's my autumn break (my college actually have an autumn break and a spring break).

And I thought the 1,000 mark was a big deal for most people...college has really taken a toll on my FS time. I think that (if able) on Thanksgiving I'll try to get up to 300 hours. At least, one New Year's resolution has been met. Let's see if I can get to the 1,500 mark.
