Gosh, I don't know. I started flight simming back in the early 1980's on a Timex Sinclair 1000, then on the original Microsoft Flight Simulator on a Commodore 64, and then FS and other sims on an Amiga, and FS, Pro Pilot, Fly!, ATP, etc. on MS-DOS and Windows machines from then on. I'm pretty sure that I've owned every version of Flight Simulator--definitely owned every version of Prepar3d.

With a conservative guess of 5 hours per week for 37 years, the total is almost 10,000 hours. The true number is probably a little over that.

Interesting question!

Add:  Pro Pilot, Fly!, and ATP..  🙂

All three of those are included in my hours, and subLogic's Flight Assignment: ATP still accounts for more of my hours than FSX.  That due to the very first virtual airlines, SunAir, founded on the Prodigy service back in 1992, continued on Compuserve after the demise of Prodigy, and now still active on the internet.

Started in 1983 and every release since, so impossible to know how many hours after 37 years. One thing for certain it has always been there for me through thick and thin

Anyone on here remember CompuServe GO FSFORUM 😀

Gosh, I remember the old SunAir too. And Flight Assignment: ATP. I've accumulated nearly 15,000 hours in the last six years. All with no time acceleration. So wouldn't have a clue how many since the early 80's!

I start flight sim from 2002, but only when 2010 I start to log my time by FSP in FS9 only, at that time, I also occasionally fly FSX and XP (and some combat sim then).

After all 4 pilot entry in FSP goes over 1000h, in 2018, I went to P3Dv4, and after half year, I finally got FSC for my FSP replacement, now it logs more than 1000h then.

That send my "logged hour" over 5000, I think I'm in the 5000~10000 region then.

My Logged Level-D Full flight Simulator hour is 28h, but I have about 10 more hours unlogged on those machines😜

Steam reports me 212 hours in FSX. I guess at least 180 were since I purchased my laptop 8 months ago. I didn't keep any logs for FS9 since I started flying in 2005. By rule of 3, make it 3500-4000 hours flown.

Saitek X-52 as primary controller. Xbox 360 wired and eDimensional G-Pad Pro wired controllers as standby/travel.

Finally moved to P3D4.5. Also running FSX-SE, FS9 and XP11 Vulkan. Tried MSFS2020, but my rig isn't up to the task. What do I do with 4 sims now?

Steam says I currently have more than 1700 hours on FSX, but as some have said, that will include tweaking and test takeoffs (not necessarily a landing afterwards!) etc.
