It wouldn't be me. My goal is to work as little as possible but still make normal pay. Last year I did a little over 100 hours and this year may do less than that since I've been doing a lot of BFI-YVR trips. That will all come to a quick halt, though, if I bid over to the 757....those guys fly a lot more.
Anyhow....I always put on forms that I have 8000 hours....a rough estimate that doesn't change. And no....I don't keep my logbook up to date....
I know a guy who retired at AA with a little over 27,000. I am sure there people with a lot more than that, but that number sure seems impressive to me. That's spending over 3 years solid in a plane!
BTW, that is a funny way of looking at logbooks. My instructor told me that tell people that he has been flying for seven months. That is because he has a little over 5000hrs. Me, I have spend 12 days in an airplane, HA!
I am not sure who is the current Grey Eagle but a few years back it was a gentleman down in AL. Forgive me for not remembering his name, I actually got to meet him. He had something in excess of 30,000 logged hrs. All VFR. He flew pipeline and electrical line patroll. He wasn't even IFR rated. I would check out Guiness Book of World Records.
I think my dad had 31,000 hours when he retired a few years ago. He's now passed training and will start flying again for another 3 years till he's 65 in the A300-600. So I would imagine its gonna go up another thousand or two.
I know one retired FAA Airspace Systems Inspection Pilot who had over 10,000 hrs. logged. I know that it is nowhere near the highest time, but I like to learn all I can from the high time pilots that I meet.
I figure that they didn't get to be wise old high time pilots by doing dumb things in an airplane.
I am sure some of these WWII era pilots, used to log an awful lot of time back in the day - especially before things like fatigue were taken seriously. 60,000+ seems an awful lot of time - far more time then I want to spend in an aircraft.
