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.

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

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 for me was about 3 years... and it was worth the wait. I flew EWR-ZRH... BSL-ZRH-BOS-PHL on Swiss Air's 747s. The last time I flew was 7 days ago.. and I will be flying again in 3 days.

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.

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.

I went from 1991 to 2002 without flying at all. Basically from the time I started working at the age of 16 until I was actually able to start getting decent vacation time from an employer. After '02 I started making a point of booking a flight at least once a year to see family wherever they may be.. Last flight for me was 6/6/06 (creepy, huh?) and my next flight back home will be this weekend on a good old WN 737

My last flight was about a month ago...will be flying again in about 2 weeks, heading back to GSO. After that, I go a month before going to JFK, then 2 weeks before going back to GSO. I have September off, but in October-November, I'll be travelling nearly every week, going to BOS, SEA, week off, BOS, LHR, LAS, BOS, week off, BOS...that'll be brutal on my body...

I seriously doubt it.

For someone who is one of the original 100 members I am surprised you haven't flown.

I have not been on a plane for 5 months.

Last biggest non flying period was between July 1991 & November 1997

My longest gap was a little more than 2 years - self imposed. Not ashamed of it, I had a trip that really spooked me with the close calls and bad human decisions that almost made me part of a headline.

I got back on the horse by hanging out the side of a Jet Ranger shooting video.

Now its been about 2 weeks
