What do you do during long hauls?

Hey Pilots/ATC, I usually start my long/ultra Haul in night and that usually ends at next day Afternoon or evening!

I start ascent and and do step climbs, after a while I go for sleep and wake up in the morning and check how much more ETE Is left, so I usually check the beautiful landscapes outta there and spend time.

When time for the approach, I calculate the speed at desired altitude should be, and reduce it accordingly!

And the final step, approaching the runway,landing, and taxing to parking. That’s it what I do for my long hauls.

Have safe landing everyone!

There’s been multiple topics on this already πŸ™‚

@TylerShah never noticed one, so thought to createπŸ™‚

@ShaneAviation He is asking suggestions, my topic just says my opinion on what I doπŸ™‚, and what do you guys do during that?

Could be they were asking questions on what to do


Anyways had a 16 hr flight 3am-730pm. (Times are correct). I slept, attended class, homework , you tube, IFC, more you tube, instagram, more IFC, more study, Facebook, more IFC, walk, ate, more sleep, then landed.

My mistake, I misinterpreted the conversation. I tend to roam around VA slacks and sometimes I edit up footage and make timelapses while at cruise, maybe some YouTube, and even just planning for my next place to control since I love giving myself a challenge when it comes to controlling radar on the expert server.

One time I started a flight way too early and I was so lucky that I managed to land during lunch in a bust ATC airport

I did have a priority landing because I called in low fuel

Typically I sleep during long hauls. But sometimes I would just roam around in free cam, or take some neat screenshots of my plane.

I usually take some snaps after the flight, going into the replay and my priority is always to grab a moon shot. I am only a bit experienced in it but get some good shots too!
