Not sure if anyone else keeps track of this, but if anyone were to, they'd be here, so here goes. How many hours have you spent airborne, since you started keeping track?

Since May of 2004, I have spent a total of 100 hours and 38 minutes, plus or minus a few minutes, in the air on various commercial flights.

Don't know about flight time but last time I checked a couple of years ago I had flown about 30 commercial flights in my life, adding the last year or two the total comes to about 32. I have also flown private planes more than commercial.

I worked it out a long time ago, only very roughly though. At an average speed of 500mph, I have flown for a total of about 300 hours, although that figure is out of date too I expect now.

I keep meaning to put all of my flights into an excel spreadsheet, just don't have the time currently, does anybody know if their is a site like Great Circle Mapper out there which calculates air time? I know it would only be very approximate due to varying winds.

Actually, I just note down takeoff and landing times on a notepad that I take on each flight, together with the flight number, tail number, etc.

Ah I do that the lazy way, quick snap of the camera, just of something even if the cap is on, so I can then look at the time the picture was taken and work it out that way.

Only done that though for the last few years, so I was looking for a lazy way of finding out the rest silly

I figure it would be just about useless to add up all of mine, since if I recall correctly my first flight occurred at the age of 1.

I've been on planes since I was a few months old, so who knows?

I can say I have triple digit times for being at the controls of small Cessna's.

And I would guesstimate triple digit times for commercial flights too.

No way of knowing for sure now though.

I have kept a log of all my flights (started in 1983, but I included earlier flights from my Dad's diaries etc) since I was born. I now use an excel spreadsheet (much easier).

So far my total flight time adds up to 2264 hours 5 minutes. Flight time being time from leaving the gate to arriving at the gate.

I count wheels-up to wheels-down. And the Excel spreadsheet sounds like a good idea.

Where do I begin?

I will give a very good estimate after thinking for about 20 minutes and looking through logbooks.

I have spent very close to 28,000 hours airborne.

I'm 52 BTW.



Long live Denver-STAPLETON. RIP the old and best KDEN
