When you fly, and gain ‘experience’, do you go for the flight time, of for the XP’s?
If you want a higher grade, you need t increase both, but if appears for a Grade ‘promotion’, hours are more important than XP.
To become a Grade 2 you need 1000 XP and 1 hour flight-time. The XP/time ratio is 1000, an admirable ratio if you ask me.
A Grade 3 needs 40,000 XP / 10 hours = ratio of 4000, which is …well, let’s see how good that is…
Grade 4 needs 75,000 XP / 50 hours = ratio of 1500.
Grade 5 needs 150,000 / 250 = ratio of 600.
XP is calculated by a misterious, no doubt complex formula and is some sort of indication on your flying skills (please don’t shoot me!).
But it appears that the higher your grade, the lower the ratio between eXPerience and flight time. What does this say about the Grade 5 ;-)
I have a habit of keeping my total XP/flight-time ratio > 1000. I thought that was pretty impressive. But it’s nothing compared to the ratio of 4000 that a Grade 3 needs achieve!
New Grade 3’s…what did you achieve first, the 40,000XP, or the 10 hours flight time?https://community.infiniteflight.com/t/how-much-xp-do-you-earn-per-trip/
P.S the frst one who mentions the word ‘global’ in a reply, ows everyone a free drink ;-)
