Long Range Commercial Airline Flights

Hello,
What has been your longest flight ever flown on a simulator?
Please specify which simulator you used.

Here is my personal record (quite low):

X-Plane v8
Boeing 747-400 United
5 hour and a half flight over the Atlantic Ocean

I tried an SFO-SYD but got lost somewhere off the coast of Mexico......does that count?

ATC: Yeah, it's OK. He's not hungry.

How on earth did you get there!?!?!?
Were you flying everything by hand?!!
What simulator did you use?

Anyway, I guess it does count.
Do you remember how long the flight time was from SFO to SIM (Somewhere in Mexico)

Ok, I really need to catch up

I remember about 7 months ago, I did my first "commercial" flight.
San Josť to Los Angeles!!

I was flying way overspeed, so I got there in about 15 minutes...

Flying by hand can get you to really weird places. I tried SFO-LAS and ended up in Utah (yes, i didn't use the gps or map.) Btw, this is in FS2004. I just tried an SJC-SFO in a 777 a few days ago, and it was successful.

It can get you into very weird places, yes.
Sometimes though, it is more interessting than watching the plane fly itself.
My flight accros the Atlantic was nearly (NOT) perfect.

I took of at a regonal airport in Burlington, with tailstrike
Over the Atlantic, engine 3 died because of low fuel pressure...!

Still made it in one piece though!

Nice.....I landed a 737 at my local general aviation airport yesterday and I came about 20 ft. from the end of the runway. The Taipei to Hong Kong sector is fun, especially if you are trying to land at the old airport.

A year or so ago a Boeing 777 flew from Hong Kong to London Heathrow, Westbound round the world. Non stop.
11000 something miles in 23 hours.
I have done this on Flight Sim 9 using the PSS 777 and using the FMS.
It took me 23 hours 37 minutes
But I must admit I did sleep a few hours while it was flying

Hey! I can't believe this thread is still here :P

Now I have flown about 25 KLAX-EGLL and KLAX-NZAA flights (over the past 2 years). Quite better than my original.


I'm on my way.. should be starting ground school in Jan. and flying for the PPL next summer.

What happens in FS when you fail to follow a TCAS resolution advisory because you are asleep at a crew rest? Does the other plane manage the resolve the incident?
