Soaring Over the Great Lakes

Hosted By: @AppleJet_Virtual

Welcome to Our First Event!

Hey all! AppleJet Virtual is ecstatic and proud to host our first ever event. This event will be a group flight over the Great Lake Michigan to the west side of the Great Lake Huron in the midwest region of the United States. Being a GA VO, we are excited to see many GA aircraft fill up our central hub in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and fly over to Mackinac Island in Michigan. We hope to see you there!

About AppleJet Virtual

Here at AppleJet, we are a community of not only aviation enthusiasts, but experienced Infinite Flight pilots and controllers wanting to share our passion with others. AppleJet Virtual is here to give you a unique flying experience within Infinite Flight. One thing that sets us apart is being able to fly our 4 General Aviation (GA) aircraft, while still being able to fly those commercial routes. Many of our pilots however still love flying larger commercial aircraft and you can still do that with our 7 aircraft AppleJet fleet. We welcome everyone and hope to see you all in the skies either flying with or for us! To learn more about us, check out our thread here.
