Community trying to learn hour many hours flown by year, starting with 2019, hours.
See the link to take the survey at end of the post.
New pilots project the hours you expect to fly in 2020, instead.
We need real numbers as it does not keep track of your name no one pilots will get credit for any of the hours.

Select your country, from the dropdown list.
Select your category, from the list below. If you fly more than one category the program will not handle that as the only check of duplicates entries of your computer's IP address.
Select the category that you fly the most and add the time to it.
  1. Ultralight
  2. Historical Single place
  3. Modern Single place
  4. Historical Dual Place
  5. Modern Dual Place
Select your Use, from the list below.
  1. Personal
  2. Business
  3. CFI
Then Enter your 2019 hours flown.

It is not much of a program yet, as I wrote it in about 1.5 hours.

I don't believe it.

I filled it in - are you on Facebook? I got kicked off, but there are a bunch of gyro specific groups there that you could post this on too.

If you do not log your hours.
Look back at gas receipts and divide the total gallons/liters purchased by the gallons/liters per hour fuel burn.
Or don't have that. Just remember your adventures in 2019 and add up about how much you flew.

You can now drill down into the data.
Click Select on the Country and it will display the aircraft categories for that country.
Click Select on an aircraft category and it will display their use of that category.
Click Select on a Use and it will display the raw data for each pilot entering data for that use.

I did your survey for 2019, but I have already flown 50% more hours in 2020 than I did in 2019. Why do you only want 2020 numbers from new pilots?

Thank you, it may help in providing lower group insurance for us all.
Great question... I thought no one had noticed.

Short answer = PRA is a charity and we support the community even if they do not support PRA so it will always be available to the public only ask them to log in as a guest in the future so we can assure no duplicates in 2020 data. I'm furiously writing the new website every day.

Surveying the historic 2019 data first to have a comparison.
2020 will be added on the 1st of January.
The rest of the story:

The new website If you are a PRA member there are new electronic logbooks for pilots, aircraft, and engines, the pilot's log will feed this database in real-time is the first reason and I need to know who you are to assure no duplicates.
The reason for why now = this forum asked and I did not know the answer other than data from PRA mags 25?? years ago.

Don, David, or Bobby, or someone asked how many hours are ultralights flown.
So I took the time to create it for us to learn.
Today it is a debugging test for the public and to display the results in the future to our community testing.

Need Input...
I feel like # 5, the robot movie about artificial intelligence. His line was "Need Input".
