So I was doing lots of flying the past few days to get on the Advanced Server because I feel that I am professional and ready for it. I have read other topics about unprofessional and annoying behavior on the Advanced Server, and I am determined to try my best to make sure that nobody feels this way about me.
I just earned Grade 3 a few seconds ago. Tonight I hopped in an Aeromexico 787 at KLAX, and then flew to KNUC -> KSAN -> KNUC. After my landing at KNUC, I had 39,949 XP!!! So frustrating! I really thought I was gonna get it. So then I just hopped in one of my favorites (American 777-200ER) at KSAN. I figured I would to a pattern and then land so I could get enough XP. As soon as I was airborne, I realized I had 40,118 XP, and that was enough for me! I exited the session right then and there. Yay Advanced!
I also remember back when we had standing and you needed at least 5,000 XP and 100% standing, so I remember doing something similar in the same aircraft with the same callsign (American 78 Heavy) and just blasting out of KSFO on casual.
So my question for you guys is: What was your last flight before you got on Advanced (or before you reached your next grade)?
