What is on your bucket list

Finish all my ratings and fly for either the airlines or corporate. And own an airplane as well.

Planes… I want planes. Want a private plane and another private plane.

I have this idea to purchase some hardware and have a go with X-plane 11, in particular Live. But I have no idea if/how X-plane 11 does Live (if you do, send me a PM, and don’t use this thread).

An even vaguer idea is to go for my private pilot licence.

Would love to do a flight in a private jet, but I am lacking rich friends.

Within IF, I want to fly EGLL to EHRD in a Spitfire, and land a little Super Decathlon on top of the Mont Blanc.

Oh and I want to become a Grade 6 ;-)

You might be able to do this if you have friends or family working as crew on corporate jets. My mom was a flight attendant for a private jet company, and crew and employees (the company drive lol) and their friends and family are allowed to fly on ferry flights as long as the employee is accompanying. Not to brag or anything 😏, but my brother, mom, and I flew Hong Kong to Macau twice (it’s just a quick 15 mins flight) and i got to sit in the cockpit. Not sure if all corporate airlines allow this though, as my mom knew the owner of the airline personally. Give it a try if you’ve got any friends working in that industry.


On my bucket list is mostly places to go:

  • Go to Germany, Iceland, somewhere in South America, and Africa
  • Fly on an A350
  • Get my PPL and eventually a CPL OR become ATC if I eventually find that flying is not my thing
  • Fly BA1 (idk why, it just seems fun especially crossing the Atlantic in an a business class A318. Flying out of EGLC is exciting for me already lol)
  • Visit North Korea, my mom is against this but my dad Anschluss (why does it autocorrect to Anschluss every time I type and) I would like to do this. It seems quite interesting and make for great stories.

Not too much as my bucket list mostly consists of non aviation related stuff. I am also proud to have flown on Cathay’s 747 from Hong Kong to Tokyo and back, especially since they’ve retired.

Fly on, or see lamd a 747/A380, since we probably wolnt have those for a long time, some would say fly on a 787 since it is nicer, but I am less woried about that now since we will have those in 20yrs when I grow up(I will grow up in less than 20yrs but…)
