Thanks to the idea of hibernating... I can now play unlimited flights and also dont have the worry about landing I can do it at ease later!!!

I also fly upto around 9 hours on the demo version of FS passenger, the major concern was fuel, guess what FS comes with the option of auto-refuel using Ctrl + X, done, I can now fly at ease from KSFO to any location!!! ONly problem being that I have limited snacks, but on a night flight to tokyo, passengers are sleeping after dinner and :D let them sleep I reserve my snacks for the day.

I control the serving of snacks and other optins like seat belts etc. So I dont give them anything till the hungry passenger option pops up. I feared that would lead to some points loss, but nah, I got my points. Ofcourse I am not crazy to fily all 9 hours, i increase clock speed to 16x autopilot mode .. and I get my ranks quicker too.

Is this cheating ... well no, I am only using the features provided in FS!!! LOL

Its not cheating... its just unreallistic... unless you simulate yourselft "deep sleeping" throughout the journey... so you wake up and walla, there you are at the destination :D LOL

hi guys

FSP is the best addon in FS history so far...however, there's something i need to tell you to make ur life easier :):)

first set a course yourself, before saving ur course and starting the flight, u need to do something....zoom into your arrival airport and make sure your flight path is headiing straight into the runway...this makes ur life a hundred times easier...make your flight VFR and click then save it and start flying

When u start, set your altidude switch ONLY. take off then make ur auto throttle on to 250 kts. if u wanna go faster just ask for a 250 kts clearance from the ATC. before u set your plane on auto pilot, there is a switch on the dash board that says GPS or NAV. make sure its on GPS and also make sure that your Approach lock is on :)

Right now u are ready to set ur plane on auto pilot, and guess what? when u do that and a turn is coming, just leave the plane and it will turn by itself!! how good is that!! it is realistic and that happens with real pilots as well :):) just leave it on that and the only thing u need to do is the landing and the lowering of altitude :):):):)

Good luck! i promise its not a cheat!
