Whats the saying - A pilots life is 90% boredom 10% sheer terror ?I fly on my computer with a glass of booze at the window sill, a cigarette in my left hand and the joystick at my right.
AP is engaged and the flightplan is doing what it should do.
Would not want to be a real airline pilot. That is boredom most of the time.
Whenever it gets boring on a long haul, I put the sim at 4x (not to lose the AI) and then I look around and enjoy the landscape while my wife prepares dinner.
No, Flightsimming is not anywhere like the real world experience!
GLA - BRR. BHD - GLA is the same but with a bit more taxi time thrown in at BHD. Oh - and the scenery isn't as pretty.Sometimes the boredom is greater. A Loganair pilot told me of a standard route to an Outer Hebridean airport from Glasgow which was takeoff, one turn, land. Flight time anout half an hour. Yawn!
