Well I hope it does, it would be unfair for those of us who fly the whole mission to have the same flying hours. winkngrin


Yes it does. I noticed this some months ago using "air start". Flying time starts when you start flying. I can attest to the fact that the "boring" factor will get you killed, you have to fight past it. I heard a WWII fighter pilot say that "air combat is hours of boredom interspersed with a few minutes of sheer terror."

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from either end.
