My last flight was 1987. So about 18.5 years.

Can anyone top that?

At one point it was 6 years between flights; so long that I forgot what flying was like! The next flight was like rediscovering aviation all over again. Currently standing at about 2.75 months.


Next flight: GRR-ORD-PDX-SEA-ORD-GRR

Right now it's 1 year and 9 months...  Sad

Most time I spent on the ground was almost 9 years. When I finally managed to get on a plane again, it was my first flight alone. As I watched through the window on takeoff, I remembered my mom's words the night before, advising me not to get nervous. Me, nervous? I was thrilled!  bouncy 



What do I know, I'm just an 'immature troublemaker with only a passing interest in aviation' (or so they say)

It's been an interminable one year and three months to the day today since I last took off. I just hope it's not *another* year and three months until my next flight!  crossfingers

The longest about 2 years. But the last time I sat in an airliner was about a month ago.

Its just been over a month since my last flight...but the longest gap without me flying is 3 years. Its kinda good when you've not been on a plane in a while because you forget what it all feels like, its awesome when all the motions come flooding back.

Longest ever was probably a few months. In the last 10 years the longest gap has been a little less than a week.

I went my first 18 years and six months of my life without flying  Sad Since then I think my longest time without flying was from 1970-1975. I have had several 2 or 3 year gaps since then. Most recently was May 6-9 BWI-DEN-SFO-DEN-BWI on F9.
