    Cool of driving/of flying

    Hello!

    We say: it takes one hour of driving.


    Can we say: it takes 3 hours of flying or it's 3 hours of flying?

    THank you
    Will

    Re: of driving/of flying

    We can, but since we aren't usually doing the flying of the aircraft, something like "it's a 3 hour flight" is more common.

    Re: of driving/of flying

    I would say, "It takes one/an hour to drive" or, "It takes one/an hour by car".
