How many miles do you fly each day? On average we cover 120 miles for every hour that we fly. For example, a day shift on the Exeter aircraft might fly 2 hours, 5 minutes on a particular day, so that’s about 240 miles, bearing in mind we slow down to take off and land! Of course it all varies quite a bit depending on the the time of year. In the summer we are a lot busier because of the influx of people visiting Devon. People are outdoors a lot more, there is more daylight for activities and people are out on the roads travelling.
