Hey all. ive done countless #'s of little 1-2 mile hops with cessna's but im asking for flights with aircraft such as Commutor props to 744's for that matter. Ive done the Westray-Papa Westray-Westray run a few times using a Britton-norman Islander. What are yours?

ENBO-ENSH-ENBO in a Dash8. You barely have time to climb to 6,000 Ft.
ENTC-ENHF-ENTC is similar.

Whenever I download a new aircraft, I always flight test it by flying from SEA to PAE. It's a very short flight, and nearly a straight shot. Usually takes about 5 minutes.

JVY-SDF. Flight time of about 5 minutes. The runway at JVY is barely long enough but I can get just about get anything outta there. Also done the Macau- Hong Kong run quite a bit A few others I have done:

NRT-Hyakuri Aero
NRT-HND
KIX-JOO
ONT-LAX
BUR-LGB
HKG-Huangtian
IAH-HOU
IAH-EFD
SEA-PAE
FLL-MIA

All of these have a flight time of less than 10 minutes.

SEA-PAE is one of my favorites, but if I want something more interesting I always go for ORY-CDG. Here's how it goes:

1. Depart ORY at RWY 25
2. Turn right to HDG 360 while climbing to about 5000 AGL
3. If you pass above the Eiffel Tower, you know you're on the right track
4. Intercept any eastbound CDG localizer you like, then turn to HDG 087
5. Land!

I like this route a lot, especially because you can do it in pretty much any kind of airplane. The biggest I've tried was a LDS 767, but I have no doubt that a good 747 with low fuel would also do the job nicely.

ORY-CDG

I did that tin the opposite direction once, in the Spirit of Saint Louis. The first time I landed the A/C on the runway.

BIRK-BIKF is another good short hop, and DCA-IAD too. Done those quite a few times.

Reminds me of a FsPassengers flight...

Took off from O'hare. 3 seconds after rotation, i hit a bird. The engine died and I tried to restart it, instead I opened the cabin door. Impacted the ground less than a mile from the runway. My brilliant piloting abilities shown through...

LAX - SMO

That's my testing route for most aircraft...Take off on 25R out of LAX, climb up to 7,500, make a right turn (I don't remember the heading...it's been a while), and another right after about a minute, and then line up for a straight-in approach to RWY 3.

Sometimes, depending on the A/C, I'll make a left and head down to LGB, which for some of the larger A/C is better.

Both flights take less that 7 minutes...

I've done the same, but MDT-CXY. They are just across the river from one another. I only climb to about 500ft, and then a slight left bank and I am on short final to CXY, rwy 26.
The entire flight lasts about 2 minutes (from full stop to full stop). It's good for a few kicks!

Excluding returning to the same airport, I sometimes simulate flights such as Everett-BFI with a "new" 737 or Renton-BFI with a "new" 777. I also do various other really short flights when I'm in the mood for using FS but not in the mood for burning up a bunch of time.

DUS-HAM, LT MD-11. It was a simple ferry flight to upgrade LT888 HAM-PMI from an Airbus to an MD-11.

Another one was a combination of short hops. One of which was LH1955, the flight which was flown on the day Deutsche Lufthansa 50 years after they restarted. The original flight in 1955 was with a Connie, but the one I did in the sim and was done in real life was with this:

Then there were the three times I did the FRA-HAM shuttle, then DUS-NUE with AB and HAM-DRS on 4U.

The Loganair Papa Westray-Westray route back and forth would be THE shortest. As for scheduled flights TNCM-TFFJ on a Winair BN-2.

My shortest 'Simulated Commercial' flight is (just like in real life) an America West CRJ-9 from TUS-PHX. ~30 minute flight, most of which is spent working into the approach to PHX.

Took off from FRA and at the parameter fence, the 744F was in the ground.

I have done a few in A319/738s, inculding EXT - BRS, CWL - BRS, ORK - DUB, NOC - DUB, GWY - DUB, DUB - BFS....

But then again, there was also the time I flew Halifax - Dublin in the 738 and ended up gliding the last 20 mins.

25 USAir330 : Shortest flight I've done is KSFO-KOAK.... This flight use to be flown by United if I'm not mistaken.
26 FlyMIA : KMIA-MYBS MIA-Bimini. In FS2000 when I did not know what I was doing this was one of the only flights I did I flew the 734 on this flight all day. But
27 KPWM : To test out new aircraft I usually fly MFM-HKG or SEA-PAE routes. But my shortest was SFM - Biddeford Municipal (12 miles)
28 Cpd : Shortest for me was Cardiff to Heathrow via Bay of Biscay. That's a nice flight to do, with a manual turn at M2.01 part way through it.
29 AAH732UAL : I did a ATAv 738 flight ORD-MDW. Would have been faster but I wanted the VOR/DME RNAV or GPS 22L. That or probably TOL-YIP, but there again I did an R
