I had a question. We all know we do Overnights to accumulate XP. But, have you ever thought of doing Overnights to help you get up early for work, or just to help you get up early in general?
I currently don’t do overnights often, but sometimes I do it so I can get up early, land, and be ready for the day.
I have work at around 7:00AM EDT. I begin to plan what flight I should do. If I go to bed at around 9pm-9:30pm, I have to be up by 6am so I can make lunch, and head to work.
I begin scouting online for flights that last about 9 hours or sometimes shorter if I go to bed later.
I then begin the process of putting a Flight Plan, add fuel, check Windy.com (for Atlantic Crossings and Pacific Crossings) and then takeoff, monitor my flight until I reach my Cruising Altitude, and then head to bed and let the flight do it’s thing.
I have a secondary phone, so I set my alarm about 30 minutes early before landing (most of the time).
Doing this will sometimes help me get up and get ready for work, so that way I don’t end up late. It also helps since I can make my lunch for later in the day, as well as help me get used to getting up early, so I can enjoy the day better.
I normally fly International Flights into and out of my local airport in MHT.
That’s my purpose for doing Overnights. I will do it for fun if I have a day off sometimes.
What is your purpose besides gaining XP?
