I suffer from “Realistic Route Syndrome”, for example, I like flying 8:30 to 9 hour flights where I take off, go to bed and land within an hour of waking up. I was looking for flights that fit this time range and one of them was Charlotte to Zurich according to SimBrief, but there are no direct flights between the cities in real life so I won’t fly it. Does anybody else suffer from this and how do I fix it in my brain
Lol weird syndrome have you tried visiting doctor?
That sounds like a serious issue. Luckily, I watched all seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. So I’m basically a doctor.
If the route doesn’t exist in RL, take the Cessna Citation, the Private MD-11, a Generic livery or any Cargo plane. Fly it as a corporate or charter cargo route. That’s how I do it. 😊
Yes!!! I feel guilty for flying some unrealistic route… I ask myself “what’s wrong with you?”
That’s a good idea, I’ve realized FedEx and UPS fly many random routes all over the world
I knew I wasn’t the only person who suffered from this!
What @Marc said. How about a Manchester to Bermuda in a TBM because its realistic I used to have this issue as well 🤣
Oh my gosh, that’s what I do!
EGLL-VIDP EGLL-VIDP EGLL-VOHS all in that time range
Just do longer routes and sleep mor3 -__-
btw CYVR-EGLL is a nice 9 hr you can pull off.
This is a common problem with most flight simmers
Unfortunately I suffer severely from this syndrome. 9 hours is a nice range. LHR-AUS is maybe 9.5-10 and vice versa is like 8. However, if you want more routes you can check FR24 or this:
KIAD-LSGG is about 9 hours
Relax, you are not alone ;) If not, you can always fly cargo or the citation x.
I personally love flying the Infinite Flight 788 if the route doesn’t exist. It’s like a private charter, but with an extra sexy livery.
All the time. Sometimes I don’t even fly it if infinite flight doesn’t have the livery associated with the route.
Your profile pic says this comment perfectly 😂
Actually you’re not alone in this… I like to be as realistic as I can… Before planning my flights; i check the Flightradar24 for the routes of that flight; even in the same day (if completed ) or the previous day if haven’t flown yet… I modify the routes to be as close to real life as i can and I always choose the same callsign, gates, aircraft types and taxi routes… Flight simulators are more beneficial and considered great educational tool when its highly realistic
Be proud of high avgeek level you have… Simulators are better when they replicate everything in real life👍
I guess I’m the only one flying Aeroflot in South America…
