Join a virtual airline, I highly recommend it, it gives you a much greater purpose and goals to achieve.

Indeed, i can fully agree with that, VA’s give you a purpose to fly, to achieve something, in that VA. Being grade 5 it’s no easy or quick task and takes skill and dedication and hats off to you for being super dedicated, you can take that dedication and join a VA or two but not too much as it’ll get overwhelming

While you look at other ways to stay entertained, vote for an oldie but goodie feature request…best idea I could come up with for something to do after grade 5…

I reached grade 5 the other day. It just feels better flying on expert server knowing that you’re the top 1 percent in terms of pilots with the same grade. For now I’m just trying to rack up my xp to try and hit a million.

Like I said before, IF is really to big to ever be bored.

Behind any goal that is just a milestone, lies boredom.

Kinda easy, TBH. Just do long hauls every night for a month or two and you’re set. :)

Apply to be an IFATC! The process is actually pretty fun and controlling on expert would be a lot better rather than on training, haha. I’m currently in the process and I have my practical test today. Highly recomended!

As a fun task start learning tricks or mastering new aircraft, perhaps the fighter ones.

Now you’ve reached the top of all Grades, Congrats, but next up is a bigger challenge. And nope, not keeping G5, rather try to do something a little more time fun but still very time consuming. Gain more Flight Hours and XP ;)

  • 10,000 Flight Hours
  • 10,000,000 XP

These two are currently my goals I’m trying to reach. But they’ll come eventually as time goes by but if you’d like, you can always hit up a aircraft and fly around the world, along the equator, or fly via major cities in the world, maybe go to near or to Antartica? Whichever you pick, you will explore new regions and scenery on the way ✈️

Good airports for me include ATL, PEK, DEN and DTW

I use the 318 but only because I have no experience with GA :)

Congrats! I am not sure I will get there because my 90 day landing count keeps dropping as work keeps me busy.
