ETE to Dest : 12 hours 20 minutes
Cruise Altitude MSL : ( In feet ) Step Climb starting at 31,100 ; 33,100 ; 35,100 ; 37,100 ; 39,000 ; 41,000

#1610

How are you able to continue your flight from where you left off if you’ve stopped the game, do you actually mean ending the flight?


#1611

last sunday i did KOAK-KSJC in a 737 flight time 1:27 also got vectored around by ATC to descend to the right altitude but not crash into mountains


#1612

That must have taken HOURS to make that flight plan!


#1613

That’s a very accurate description!


#1614

This was a beautiful flight, KOAK-KLGB!


#1615

I turn it on, takeoff, and just close it while charging. For me, if you turn it back on, it continues where it left off.


#1616

First time doing Perth to London!


#1617

It’s out! Another 10,000nm journey LEMD - NZAA

Flight time: 21h30min

787-8 (Boeing House) - Boeing doing its test flights for ultra long-haul

Initial cruising altitude: FL 310
Final cruising altitude: FL 390

I’d recommend not doing this route if you’re not familiar with trim…you’d end up crashing in the Pacific Ocean midway (left with 1% fuel on arrival)

My FPL (not the most optimal due to winds aloft):

No pictures as the FPL covers 70% water. Unless IF global covers water depth sometime in the future.


#1618

London to Perth on a sunny afternoon.


#1619

From the Azores to Canada, the moon rising over the North Atlantic.


#1620

How long did that take and what was your flight plan and weight configurations?


#1621

At takeoff…

Fuel 1,008kg (tanks full),
Pilot 64kg,
Cargo 33kg.

Four hours and twenty-eight minutes in the air, I was flying fairly fast and riding a tailwind for much of the flight, my ground speed must have averaged around 240kts.

I set out from Flores, LFPL, bound for St. John’s International, CYYT. I made a staggered ascent over the course of the flight, from 17,000ft to 21,000ft. Trim at 40% for much of the flight.


#1622

It is finished. Seventeen hours and thirty-one minutes. Battled a gusting 25kt crosswind to touch down in New York with 3kg of fuel remaining.


#1623

ZWWW - SCIP (I wanted to fly a 777-300ER but there’s no Boeing livery, so instead I chose a 787-8)

Flight time: 19h06min (9000nm+)

BOGDA PEAK

I bet you guys won’t want to fly this…

Edit: Don’t do this flight as there’ll be no gates big enough to contain a 787 in SCIP


#1624

Just completed Newark to Abu-Dhabi!
Flew the United 787-9 and due to the fast headwinds I would have landed at about 3 AM instead of 6 AM so I had to divert to London due to a "medic emergency.


#1625

Departing out of Réunion Island, France enroute to Mexico City (FMEE to MMMX, Boeing 787-8 Aeromexico)

100% fuel, 15 passengers and 1000kg cargo.
94% N1 flaps 15 Vr 165 kts initial climb 2500fpm 0-5000ft, 5000ft-30000ft 1500fpm, step climbs 700fpm 30000ft-40000ft with 2000ft intervals.

Madagascar

If you’ve nothing better to do in life other than spending 19hrs, behold the 9000+nm FPL:

I attempted to parked at MMMX T2 but there’re no gates that can hold the 787 so I squeezed into a GA slot.

P.S. Choose @Cavan FPLs if you’ve OCD and cannot stand non-curvy FPLs!
