Hi all,

 

I am happy to launch this poll.

 

The goal is to paint collectively an image of who we are and of what are our practices with the 777.

 

I use the poll feature capability to its maximum that is 24 questions. You might think it's a lot. On the other side the questions are easy and it takes only 5 minutes  to complete the poll.

 

The more votes, the better image we get.

 

So please vote everyone!

 

Notes:

- Some questions allow multiple choice answers.

- Many thanks to those who participated in the mockup of this poll. Most suggestions have been taken into account.

- I am aware that this is not a representative survey, etc.

- I have considered to run this poll through a third-party online service but in the end I concluded that the analysis to be made on this poll is rather simple and it is best that the data be here on Avsim

That's a very cool pool.
I'm impressed with the number of people that doesn't have a third party mesh!
Also, number of autolands is bigger than what I expected.
I'm also surprised that so few folks from South America fly the 777.

But definitely the most funny statistic is...


"Are you a male or a female?"

Male (206 votes [99.52%])
Female (1 votes [0.48%])

 

One. My God. :lol:

I would fly to South America more with LAN Cargo routes if only there was a frame rate friendly high quality EHAM available.

 

On some questions I answered 2 in the same section if that is okay. I use PFPX to plan but FSBuild to get a formatted route for ASN.

 

I also have Orbx FTX regions as well as FTX Global.

 

I also don't use any atc, I am addicted to streaming liveatc since it is as close to real world as it gets. I wish it was available in more areas though.

 

This is an interesting poll.

Haha, know what? I don't! 

My flights are all in Europe and Asia. 

But I think I'm gonna do something like SBGR - EGLL when PMDG releases the 77W and Aerosoft releases their new EGLL.

 

I would fly to South America more with LAN Cargo routes if only there was a frame rate friendly high quality EHAM available.

 

I wanted this too... just to do the KLM792 from São Paulo to Amsterdam with the 77W. 

But this is a lost cause, if you ask me.  :P

Thank you guys.

Please remember that this poll is not representative of anything. That being said, it gives a good idea of who voters are, what addons they have and what they are doing.

It's OK, some questions allow multiple answers for cases such as yours.

Nice poll, just missing the question if the virtual panel only available is Ok or people are missing the 2D panel. :)
