I have completed 29 hours of online flying , with 83 kills( but my *** was kicked 2 times more http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif)
So, how many hours has the more experienced pilots here?
My only regret to going online is that killed my interest in the offline flying...

How many hours?
With some it is more like months http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif .

You can always fire up the QMB and shoot a few bandits to practice your gunnery skills on certain types http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif .

Over the last 6 years or so? 4000+ hours in il2.

Most conservative estimate 4,000 hours - given the wait for co-ops to start up.

Oh INCLUDING the time spent waiting for coops and online wars?
Closer to 8000 hours then http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Lets face it,4000 hours only equates to 10 hours a week,52 weeks of the year,for 6 years.And I have flown online for much longer than that.

I like flying the way I want to fly, not the way some server jockey or coop host wants me to. But when I do, I always fly coops. DF rooms are so unrealistic as to be laughable. Few people fly formation or maintain any discipline like in real air combat. Coops are kind of like that too though but usually more fun. As you get to the fight about the same time as the others on your side, while DF rooms it's a helter skelter thing and an endless barage of people getting to the front lines whenever. Since there's always people spawning and taking off at different times.

So to me flying online is more disappointing than offline. Oflfine I fly when I want, hit pause when I want. Fly the difficulty I want. Everything is what I want. I fly online for about an hour per month while flying offline about 12 hours!! I have played for as long as 2 years without getting online at all!! And I could easily have if I would have wished to.

Aha! My grand total is exactly ZERO hours! Too much good offline user-made stuff out there for 1946. Besides, I get my fight/die/fight more/die more fix from Red Orchestra.

These days, just that, never go online.

In fact lately I do not even play that much offline, more inclined to play with the FMB and fool around with skins.

However back in the good old days when I actually was online a fair bit 29 hours was pretty much what I put in every week in Hyperlobby just with the squadron http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I fly aprox 30-60minutes/evening. Depends on how soon they get me. Usually I leave when I die. Makes me think before I enter any furballs http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just in the last year, I had 3800 sorties on Warclouds with the Bf110. With an average of 12 - 15 minutes per flight....Around 950 hours.... Makes and average of 2.6 hours a day. I guess too much.

I reckon 3-4000 hours in the last few years. Less so recently. I'm still crap.

Hard to say for me since I started only with il-2 PF merged when 402m came out. I remember because Oleg had to release a new patch right after that and the 109's were flying wonderfully then. That was 2.7 year ago!

One time I flew with my squadmate (BENGALtiger) for 12 hours straight. SOemtiems around 6-80 during summer so that was the good old days.

So I'd imagine around 2500-3000 hours because I used to fly everyday during summer specially.
