Two weeks ago I flow VIE-LHR, that was my longest regular flight. It took me over 3 hours because I had to interrupt my landing (there was an other aircraft on the runway ) Mostly I fly around, make a few landings and that's it.

My last complete flight was this: Manchester, NH (KMHT), to New Bedford, MA (KEWB). Cessna 172. Shot the ILS Runway 5 approach to minimums, and the autopilot was not used during the entire flight.
I'm currently working on a long cross country in the Learjet; Cedar City, UT (KCDC) to Orlando Executive (KORL) in Florida. I've got to clean up my apartment, so it's fun to just watch the airplane fly on autopilot while I do other stuff. I'll get back to it as soon as I'm done typing this.
Incidentally, my last real flight was: In a Cessna 172; Norwood, MA (KOWD), to T.F. Green in Providence, R.I. (KPVD), shot the ILS 34, then went to Pawtucket North Central (R.I.) (KSFZ), shot the VOR-A, and then returned to Norwood and flew the NDB 35 approach. This all took place this morning, and I flew them all from the right seat and under the hood because I'm working on my CFII. It was a lot of fun, but bumpy as heck. It was perhaps the second worse turbulence that I'd ever encountered, and definitely the worse that I'd ever dealt with flying the guages.

From Zurich to Warsaw flying the Feelthere (Payware) ERJ-145 in a Swiss International Airlines livery. My flight before that was from Albany (New York) to Hartford (Connecticut) flying the Eaglesoft (Payware) Beechjet 400.
Tonight I think I will fly from Atlanta to Miami using the IFDG (Freeware) 767-400 in the Delta livery, or somewhere in Europe using a Project Airbus (Freeware) A320

Im doing a "business trip" around the world with a G-IV. Started in Chicago, O'Hare. Then I flew to Westchester County (my old "home" airport). From Westchester, non-stop to London Stansted. After some down time there, again non-stop to Dubai International. Presently I'm 1.5 hrs out of Dubai bound for Singapore. After that we'll head to Jakarta and then Australia. From there, who know where the "crazy" pilot will take us!!!
Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward; for there you long to return

Last flight was CX751 Hong Kong - Bangkok in Cathay Pacific A330-300 B-HLL and then returned home with CX754 after a 4 hour stopover. (I fly for Cathay Pacific VA) Flight time: 3:15 and 3:30 respectively. Trip down was great as was the trip home - got the ATIS for Hong Kong to find cloud down to 1800ft - probably the highlight of the trip as it made the shooting the ILS a little more interesting.
