    Not a pilot so no insane hours but here’s mine.


    149,180km
    204 hours
    34 flights


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,370 ✭✭✭ b757


    ~780 Hours, 815 scheduled block hours.
    373 Flights.
    Longest; DUB-PFO (1976NM) 2083nm flown.
    Shortest; DUB-LPL/MAN.

    Edit: Not sure why, but some of the airport labels are completely wrong.

    A mate has his own consultancy firm. Posted his stats using 'App in the Air' earlier today.
    532 block hours, 140 sectors, 360,000km, 17 countries, 40 airports 14 airlines and 20 A/C types.

    Thats terrifying.

    If climate change is giving SNN a mediterranean climate, count me in.

    Quick scan of the logbook says roughly 475hrs across 260 sectors, but there was a type rating thrown in there in the middle too.

    Having moved to a bigger airline I'm expecting 2019 hours to be somewhere close to the limit

    Got promoted in work in September which has seen my flight time go up.

    34 flights this year.

    95 hours in the air.

    35,273 miles
    55,962 km
    1.4x around the earth.

    I expect next year to be double if not triple. Bring it on. I really enjoy flying :)

    You need a more appropriate username!

    They keep buying return tickets so I always end up back where I started

    I think you need to talk to EASA about yearly limits.

    That sounds like you literally fly only one route.

    Not a pilot so all down the back since January 01/2018

    142314 km - 255 hours
    15 countries visited (Europe)
    18 different airports
    13 different airlines
    114 flights
    14 different aircraft types

    9 flights a month? That’s a lot, is that mainly day trips for business?

    Utterly pathetic year for me (passenger only)

    7 legs (one city hopping trip), 4 airlines. Two new airlines, one new aircraft type. About 7500km.

    One holiday was done by sea + car which had an impact, I was in the off-year for two annual events I go to every two years or so and I had no work trips at all for the first time in probably a decade. Think the last year I was lower than this was 2007 and even then I'm not sure!

    And yet, due to far longer than average trips, I got my Radisson status back.

    Next year is likely to be up by those two events at the very least.

    No day trips this year oddly enough because there are usually a few. Length varies from two or three days to two or three weeks.
    Lots of connecting flights A-B-C-E-A with odd patterns.
    Mostly business trips but four leisure trips in there as well, also a couple of other countries not mentioned as travelled there by boat.
    The worst part is the number of wasted hours standing in airport security, passport control and boarding queues. Once I'm onboard I can relax but I detest the other parts of the journeys...

    What did poor old “D” do to upset you?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,366 ✭✭✭ Skuxx


    This year's stats for me
    46500km
    69 hours flying
    19 flights
    7 countries
    12 airports
    5 aircraft types
    6 airlines

    Its about 50:50 work/leisure travel. Not a lot of flying compared to some of you.
    Probably spent about 5 months of the year out of the country.

    324 flights, 407 hours, 14 countries (Europe only), type rating done in May so all of it was done in the second half of the year

    are your numbers correct? According to the map you are a long-hauler, but putting the numbers together, your average flight length is less than 2 hours?


  • Registered Users Posts: 483 ✭✭ MoeJay


    Just wrapped, about 710 hours in total, 111 flights in work, and a few for pleasure....!

    Plus sone as a punter.....


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,149 ✭✭✭ bkehoe


    883....14 less than last year, been taking it easy! ;)


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,981 ✭✭✭ Growler!!!


    Started the year in Fort Lauderdale, 837 hours and 134 flights later I’ll be ringing in the new year in Rio.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,333 ✭✭✭ Noxegon


    75 flights, totalling 343 hours – all as a passenger.

    After DUB my most frequent airport was DXB, in all cases for connections.

    I develop Superior Solitaire when I'm not procrastinating on boards.ie.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,625 ✭✭✭ SRFC90


    Recently started an integrated course, finished up the year with 14hrs flown, the last of which being my first solo!

    No more flying now until all 14 ATPL exams are done!

    Commute to FRA nearly every week bar holidays. Work in Finance.

    93 flights with EI (all European legs bar 1 return to IAD using my Conc upgrades).
    4 flights with QR (bagged a fab deal in Business from LHR-HKG. Total price €1604 with 3 of the 4 legs in Q-Suite aircraft. The other was the A380 upper deck where I made lots of use of the bar).
    3 flights with LH (FRA-DUB return and FRA-LIS)
    2 flights with BA (DUB-LCY and LCY-FRA)
    1 flight with TP (LIS-FRA)

    103 flights in total with 2019 shaping up pretty much the same.
