🇨🇦 Soaring the Canadian skies since 2017.

Welcome to our event thread. We’ve taken some time to improve what we post on the Infinite Flight Community, to make sure that all our threads and posts remain visually aesthetic and convey information clearly. So, who are we? Founded all the way back in November of 2017, VirtualPorter is an Infinite Flight virtual airline based on Porter Airlines, a small Canadian regional carrier operating within Eastern Canada and parts of the Eastern U.S. Our operations within the VA is meant to be from the perspective of a pilot, not the passenger. With this in mind, we want to offer our pilots the best resources and environment available in a VA to transport our beloved virtual passengers safely from one destination to the other, all while maintaining a sense of realism and Canadian hospitality within the mobile flight simulator we operate on. Our vision is simple: to be a laid back virtual organisation with a vibrant community centred around our real life counterpart. We are IFVARB certified.


🗺 Welcome to Porter Escapes!

Our most popular and frequent live server event series, we present you Porter Escapes! In these events, we travel around Canada with our Q400s on official Porter routes (including terminated and seasonal), exploring different cities each time and showcasing our daily operations. VirtualPorter members will receive 1 PDgold point as a reward for participating. All members on the IFC are also welcome.


🔍 Event details:

Another week, and it’s another trip from Toronto. This time we will head westwards towards the edges of Ontario, to Thunder Bay. Situated on Lake Superior, Thunder Bay is the sunniest city in eastern Canada and is essentially a gateway to the great outdoors. With the recent release of our Q400 handbook, we’ll be able to fly this route and our flagship aircraft in a much more realistic manner. If you’re looking for a quick ride in the Q400 or just interested in the aircraft, don’t hesitate to tag along!

Date and time: August 8, 2020 2:00 PM

Server: Expert

Region: Ontario (Canada)

Aircraft: Dash-8 Q400 (Porter livery)

Airports: CYTZ and CYQT

Estimated flight time: 01:46 (HH:MM)

The date and time shown should be displayed in the timezone of the viewer. If not, please let us know. All participants will be added to a IFC group message shortly before departure for more detailed flight briefings and communications.


👩‍✈️ Looks good? Sign up!

Billy Bishop is a tiny airport located right next to the Toronto skyline, and as a result we can only bring a maximum of 10 pilots along! If the event is popular, gate spaces will run out very quickly so make sure to sign up as soon as possible. If you do decide to sign up, we ask that you double check that you won’t be preoccupied with another event. We’ve had way too many instances where members will put their names down and never show up (resulting in a consistently poor event attendance), so we will be introducing a two step verification - members who sign up will be sent a direct message on the IFC to confirm their gate. As always, we hope you’ll enjoy this relatively short hop to YQT!

🎉 Event is postponed.

Unfortunately due to a very low and poor turnout, we will be rescheduling this event to the same time next week! Hopefully by then we’ll be able to bring along more members to lesser-known destinations across Canada and within Porter’s route network. After all, it’ll be a good experience to take a break from the usual jet aircrafts and experience the elegant and majestic Q400. See you there! As always, if you would like to join, please take a thorough read of the event thread above.
