Luke's 2019 - How did I spend it flying in Infinite Flight?

Hi all! I thought sharing all of my flights of 2019 was a cool idea. I flew well over 2,000 hours last year and gained over a million XP. After using Gcmap.com to put all the routes I flew in 2019, I calculated that I flew over 1 million miles in 2019. (1,064,475 to be precise.) (or 1713106.4544 KM, or 925003.485097 NM.)

Thanks for everyone who flew with me last year and here is to another year of lots of flying! I also have a document with all the routes I flew as well as the maps. Here is the link:


Thanks for reading and have a safe and happy new year!

Thank you both! I was thinking doing this was a good idea, especially after going through 80 logbook pages 😂

I have been defeated😂

I may try this myself. It’s a ridiculous amount of effort. I started flying on the servers in February. I’ve not been able to fly much in December due a broken phone, but here is my November flying alone!

I’ll need to make a spreadsheet of the routes I flew! (Commercial at least)

I’ve managed to gain 1600 hours with a 4 week holiday and a broken device (my high standard commercial non crashing device) being repaired by very slow delivery since it broke on the 17th December, and haven’t flown since. I usually fly 3-5 short hauls a day, maybe 1 or 2 GA touch and goes, as well as 1 overnight flight, or a medium haul depending on what I’m doing.

That’s incredible, Luke! I ended the year with a meager 400,000 nm flown (not including patterns and training sessions). Then again, that was with only a single device (iPhone) so I could not fly over school. That all changes now!

You can hardly tell what is going on here, but still.

Anyway, best of luck with your 2020 endeavors! My goal is to beat 1 million nm in a year.
Thanks for sharing!

Well damn… imagine if there was a job where you could get paid for this!

Just kidding man, appreciate the effort you put into researching all those flights. Have a good new year.

Thats an extensive route list I’ll tell you that! Disappointed me by not flying to BEG 😑

Just kidding, looking forward to the future with even more routes! 🛫

That’s a great list and a nice website to use as a tool to track your flights. I’d love to put my flights in there but I’d need to find the time!

As a comparison, I’m a little more OCD with wanting to know the exact routes I fly rather than just a straight line from departure to destination airport, so I download each flight KML file from Live Flight and import them into Google Earth.

Not meaning to hijak your thread, but rather to show what this looks like…2019 finished with well over 200 flights in the books for me. A vast majority of them as a part of IFAE career mode (KJFK is my hub for that, obviously):

How do you do that map feature?

I used Gcmap.com to do so, as it is also linked at the top of the first post
