    You will likely get a lot of progress towards this while working on the rest of this game. Heck, you should definitely unlock this naturally if going for Wing Commander (1000 hours of flight time). But if you're just itching to get it over with, here is what I did:

    World Map >
    Departure: KLGA (Laguardia, New York) - GATE (GATE 1 -- GATE SMALL)
    Arrival: KJFK (Kennedy Intl, New York) - GATE (GATE A 14 -- GATE MEDIUM)
    Plane: Textron Aviation Cessna 152

    Once you load in, let the AI Co-Pilot take over and they will automatically start the plane, taxi, take-off, land, taxi, and park (if they don't crash somewhere along the way). Took about 15 minutes each time and got 4-6% added to the tracker each time it completed (if the AI Co-Pilot didn't crash).

    Long and short is this is likely not the easiest or most efficient way to get this, but it's how I got it. The point is to find a larger airport, click on it, and choose "Zoom For Details" (Under Set as Departure/Arrival). You want to choose a Gate/Ramp that is far away from a runaway to increase the amount of time the pilot has to taxi. Same goes for the arrival airport.

    I'm sure there is a better, longer route combination to maximize the amount of taxi time per flight. Feel free to share and I will update the solution! Let me know if I can do anything to improve this guide!

    codomojumpSorry to hear that @WholsJohn117. I personally didn't have any issues but the game is definitely a buggy mess. I think the AI Co-pilot got worse after the last update lol

    WhoIsJohn117Yeah, I have to keep an eye on mine also. I did just discover there is a tracker for taxi distance in the Pilot Profile. From the home screen, go Profile > Pilot Profile > Search 'taxi' or scroll down to 'Total Distance Taxiing (M)'. Mine is in meters, and I don't see a way to change it. Mine is currently at 24,503.27 m or 15.2 SM/13.2 NM, so something reset. We'll see if it's SM or NM once the tracker starts going up again.

    BeyonkerI used LFPB Parking 143 to LFPG Parking 55 which was giving about 7% and the AI never crashed
