Am I the only one that does this - this strange behaviour where I don’t want my XP’s (/1000) to fall to far behind my total flying hours?
I suspect most people just fly, because they enjoy it; and the statistics are just what they are: numbers and nothing more. You do short-, long haul flights, patters, all whatever you feel like and what fits in your planning for the day. Sure, you enjoy the green or peachy coloured tag above your aircraft, for everyone to see, but really you just like flying. All good stuff.
I do enjoy flying my KLM Boeings around the globe in the most unrealistic routes. But we all know that during a normal flight, we build more hours than XP. For example, a 13 hour flight may give you 9(000) XP or something like that.
Last year, when I achieved 1500(653) XPs I was most exited about the fact I did this in 1506 hours. Balance is 1:1. See what I mean? It’s the balance that matters to me, not the actual numbers. Maybe I’m just weird with this…🤫
Just interested to find out if there are others like me, who frequently visit the badbadweather site to find airports where they can do crazy patterns and make up for the ‘lost XPs’. Maybe we can start an ‘XP club’? 😉
And…yes, I know…XP doesn’t say anything about pilot skills etc…
