I am finishing up my instrument raiting and I spent 7.7 hours flying one day. This got me wondering what other people have done and I think it would be fun for us light GA pilots to share some stories! List the most time you have spent as PIC in a day and list the routing, and then list the most time you have spent on one leg and the routing. Please keep the aircraft down to light GA and list the aircraft type (Cessna 172 type). I will start:
My long IFR cross country required me to log a bunch of hours because I had gone through the 141 course pretty fast so here is what I did:
Cessna 172S DTO (Denton, TX) -SGR-SSF (San Antonion Stinson)-DTO. I logged 7.7 hours this day and did a giant triangle from the Dallas area to the Houston area, then to the San Antonio area, and back to the Dallas area. I logged 4.5 hours of IMC that day! I spent 3.5 hours on the DTO-SGR leg due to being vectored and shooting a VOR/DME approach and circling to land.
On another occasion a friend of mine and I decided to fly to the end of a sectional chart and flew from GPM (Grand Prairie, TX)-HEZ (Natchez, Mississippi). That was fun flying from the Dallas area to Natchez, Mississippi! I logged 3 hours non-stop and it was quite an experiece to fly over the Mississippi River! OK let's hear your stories!
