    Or about 13 posts on PoA per 1 daytime landing. Not bad!

    I think I’m coming in as the youngest with 331 landings. Hoping to add a few this weekend.

    Bro do you even lift
    What about sea planes? Since you're not setting them down on land, is it still a landing?

    My first unassisted (but not solo) was arguably the best. My last (after being flightless for about 2 years (still not solo) rivaled the first. I will solo and get my PPL, but the planets need to line up, first.

    I have no idea how many landings I actually have but there are a little of liver 11k documented in the logbook.

    Assuming that my landings are uniformly distributed across all of my hours a SWAG of ~1k non paid GA. Barely more than a guess. I’m terrible at keeping track of stuff in the logbook. I have over 1k hours of dual given in level D simulators I didn’t log... as an example.

    As an old Army Pilot I would say...in jest... I have more landings in night backward autos then that..but in reality 20-30 landings a day as a Army Helicopter pilot in training or operational is sort of common...

    Among a bunch of GA landings, military landings, arrested carrier landings, my oddity is 6 helo landings and only 1 takeoff (not loggable as PIC).

    Helicopters can wear you out. One day flying a Bell 47G4 in the Gulf of Mexico for Petroleum Helicopters, I logged 82 landings. They were almost all pinnacle approaches to little postage stamp helipads on unmanned production platforms. Most of the time flying loaded, with little or no excess power. No wonder I was tired that day.

    My biggest day was in a helicopter as well. My landings were easier because I would lose about 900 lbs during the flight.
