Short Trip, airport hopping = King Air: little more involved than the TBM but still very fast and can get into a lot of airports.
Instrument Practice = Working Title CJ4: Best freeware systems by far. Performance is also great for simulating some airliner aspects of flying without being too much of a pig. Very versatile.
Medium Distance/Instrument = FBW A320: Never used to like the Airbus but FBW has done such a great job implementing this aircraft! I find myself flying this more and more.
Circuit/Landing Practice = FBW A320 or Salty 747: Probably what I do most often during week days. When I don’t have time to do a full trip after work, I could just fire these up and get a couple of takeoffs and landings in the span of an hour. Keeping things “current” so to speak.
Goofing around = Vertigo: this thing is ridiculous. Love it.
Common Routes: I almost always fly different routes when I’m by myself. I like unfamiliar airports, especially ones with slightly unusual procedures. So I could spend the time during cruise figuring out the charts. The 747 needs quite a bit of planning ahead, which is a nice challenge.
However for circuit practice in the jets I usually do them at: LFBO for the 320, CYVR for the 747 .
