Share information and experiences from your longest flight on Flight simulator :)

The longest flight i have done on FS was around 17/18 hours long and was from TNCM/SXM to VHHX/HKG old with a PMDG 747-400 Delta airlines livery.

i started with fully loaded fuel tanks and landed in hong kong with less than 12,000Lbs of fuel. the landing was not the best i have had but it was ok (Not really :P ) this is mine experience/Info about my longest flight

Please take time to post information about your longest Flight simulator flight :)

I went from Houston to Panama City on a 757-200. Nothing really exciting happened.

Well.. I use Google Earth FS at the moment :P so I don't ever run out of fuel.
I took a Cirrus SR22 from L'Espérance airport (GEC/TFFG) on the same island as SXM, to Grenada (GND/TGPY). It was about two hours if I remember correctly. Luckily I had a bunch of jelly beans to last me the voyage. XD

Dubai to Kuala Lumpur, 7 hours with a 773. I carried 70% fuel but I think i wasted too much trying to get to mach 0.84 (no idea how) and did an auto refuel. It was sensational watching the sun rise and seeing some constellation :D

That's what lunch, dinner, gaming, and minigolf breaks are for :whistling:

The time goes by pretty quickly that way :P

They're quite reliable :P I just have to come back and feed the pax every 3-4 hours (can't the FAs take care of the feeding/watering/movie schedule :disgusted: )

But if you leave your aircraft for a while won't ATC disconnect you?

Autopilot modes directed by the FMC. :P

I don't fly online. Radar Contact allows you to hand off radio communications to your "copilot" so you don't have to deal with the pesky "contact XXX center at 123.45" every 20 minutes :D
