Wondering your longest flight on Flight simulator, without leaving your computer for an unrealistic amount of time, without time compression.  Wink

I just flew my 777-200LR from YYZ to MDB  Smile Over 12 hours!!

Cheers
Carson

I have flown a 772LR YYZ-MEL


As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

Well I done MIA-DXB in 777-200LR I done that flight twice. Take off around 9pm Miami time and land about 15 hours later. Ofcourse I go to sleep and let the autopilot fly. Very nice flight one of my favourites. Also have done MIA-NRT which I took off at 6am did my normal day schedule came back home and landed the 747-400.

IAH-HKG on a CX 744. The route was about 7300nm, did it in about 18 hours. Of course, I had no on board payload, otherwise there would have been no way I could have done this routing.

I've only done ATL-LAX I left my 747 for a long time, through dinner, and all kinds of nightly happenings, and I then let it fly all night. Of course, unlimited fuel was on.

Yeah. I kind of forgot about it, and then went to my computer the next day and heard the sound of my plane still flying. It was over the Pacific, so I guess it circled the globe and was going around again.

I had quite a boring summer. So i had the chance to do a few EXTREMELY long hauls. Flew CO89 (EWR-PEK) 12.9, CO88 (PEK-EWR) 13.5 hours, CO9 (EWR-NRT) 13.2, SQ21 (EWR-SIN) 18.8 HOURS. I enjoy the polar crossings, but I would not recomend SQ21. Its great up untill coming off of the Russian China boarder and realizing you still have 6 hours left. Along with a few trans atlantic's

Surely the plane would circle the airport, In all my experience of FS, whenever its reached the destination it just circles.

I've let my FS run overnight several times. The longest I've done is either PHX-SYD or EWR-NRT, being 16 and 14 hours, respectively.

Yep. It was a fun to look where I was after all that time. I might try it again one of these days with a faster plane.

I did SEA-AMS in something like ten hours back in the days when I didn't realize that the IFR routes that FS "finds" aren't always particularly realistic...I seem to recall being over Alaska before making the turn towards Europe. Other than that, I haven't done anything longer than a few eight hour and some odd minute flights between the U.S. and Europe.


Next Flight: 9/17 BFI-BFI

Thats what i understood. I flew what I said sitting at my computer in real time without any speedups, as real flights with real flight plan, ther true plane and NOT UNLIIMITED FUEL (  Wink ). I have flown around the world a few times though just letting my computer sit and a 747 run itself on autopilot.
