So I used to play IF when I was about 11 years old, I remember I couldn’t figure out how to land for weeks, and once I did, I remember I would fly between Midway and O Hare and between 2 random airports in Singapore. Eventually I decided to start logging flights.
Starting on January 22, 2016 I logged all of my flights, I logged 170 flights until I suddenly stopped with my last flight being Portland to Seattle on September 22, 2017, 609 days later. I thought I was being realistic but I would fly the 77W and 757s that I bought between little municipal airports. I thought long flights were 1 hour and it was rare that I ever flew those (When there was a San Francisco and SoCal region so there were no big regions). For some reason I always cruised at 10,000 feet, and took off, cruised, and landed at 180 knots (don’t ask me why). I would use any livery on any route. Like using the Etihad 77W on a flight between Chicago and Milwaukee. I remember how fun flying into SFO was over the salt flats on the bay, and when I bought the Hawaii region and how I would fly between the magical islands that I thought I would never see in real life. Then on July 22 of this year (A lot of 22s huh) my family and I went to Hawaii. We flew past those beautiful salt flats of San Francisco and into the majestic Hawaiian islands I thought I would never see. After being out of aviation for almost 2 years, as soon as we descended into the Bay of SFO in that United 757 (I also flew on UA 777 going back to EWR 2 weeks later, so I flew on both of planes I bought in IF) all my aviation knowledge came rushing back. That brought me back into IF where I am today. Here are a few of my favorite pages in my “logbook” from 2016-2017
And keep in mind this is my 11 year old neatness, so it’s changed, maybe
