The Global update has brought out pilots from all across this globe and from what I have observed it has been well received by us community members. On a daily basis I see folks putting out events or asking others if they want to join on a flight to some country on the other side of the world. VAs popping up left and right as a result of the excitement of global has brought out even more pilots flying more and more each day according to reports from VA leaders and CEOs.
Well, its been 90 days since global was released (give or take a day or two), whether you believe it or not and I thought it would be kinda neat for folks to share how much they’ve flown and the number of landings that they’ve done. This can be found in your “grade table”. If you prefer to not share a screenshot for whatever reason that’s fine, as there is nothing to be ashamed of, and you may just post your total hours and the landings in the last 90 days as a simple response. This is just a topic just for fun and more of reflection on how far global has come in such a short period of time. Maybe we have some competitive community members in here??? If so, show yourself! 🤔
Below I have attached my grade table and a brief description of the things that contributed to those perspective totals:
854 Hours: I love to do long hauls and set them up generally before work. I’m always thrilled to take off from Sydney and coming home to the aircraft being over Mexico. Just in time for me to plan a descent into Dallas.
1,324 Landings: I like to jet around in the pattern in the Cessna 208 and do a bunch of touch and go’s on days I don’t do a long[er] haul. Its nice for a change. I specifically look for airports that are windy to give me the added challenge for such a light aircraft. My philosophy is if you can land a light aircraft in windy conditions, you can land an airliner just fine. Somedays, if fun to just go to the basics. That would explain the high landing count.
I don’t really look at my grade table very often so I was kinda shocked when I saw these numbers. 😥
