    How many airports have you landed at?

    This question was asked at another forum I frequent, and it prompted me to get my logbook and count.
    I've landed at 32 airports since I started flying in 2008. I have less than 200 hours logged, so I have much exploring left to do!

    I have been to another dozen or so airports on commercial flights, and have driven to many, many others as well.
    But neither of those methonds count. They aren't any fun!

    These are only places I've landed my Mooney:



    4 grass strips, the rest paved.
    8 states, 42 left to go!

    Anyone else care to count and share?

    Full stops or do you want to include touch and goes?
    Unfortunately in science what you believe is irrelevant.

    Whatever you're in the mood for. No stipulations for sharing in this thread.

    125, about 1050 hours, in a little over 4 years since I got my certificate. Granted, 700 or so hours is through my place of employment.

    186, give or take. Without the job, it would be a LOT less!

    45 logged as PIC, another 25 military bases as aircrew in USAF, and at least 34 as an airline passenger probably more but have to depend on my memory. Includes Alaska, Ireland, Paris, Frankfort, Barcelona, Puerto Rico, and Goose Bay.

    Couple of J3's are trying to land in each county in Ohio. Weather delayed, of course, but I think the trip was to last a week:

    Interesting feature is they have their location, speed and altitude updated each 60 seconds while they are in the air:

    Pretty cool what old and new technologies can do together!

    Interesting idea. Looks like 43 airports, in 16 states, as PIC, all on my own dime, over the last 25 years. TT is right around 370 hours, with 30 makes/models (ultralights, experimentals, GA, business aircraft, military trainers, and helicopters).

    Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right.

    All in 14.8 hrs/year or 1.2 hrs./month on average?
