1000 Days - 3 1/2 Years IFC

My 1000 Days on the IFC


Community,

Thanks to all of you that have been here during this time. 1000 days was a long time ago, seems like decades almost. By no means am I a very experienced member here because there are very many that have been here to the start of day one. But I would just like to talk some time and reflect on the past 3 and a half years I have been a member here.

Ironically, I joined the forum because I got “ghosted” back when it was called a “ghost”. I tried getting it reversed, by I was very in the wrong haha. After that, I started to actually get to know the simulator because of the amount of the tutorials that are on here. I became a better pilot, and became more of a realistic flier too.

A bit after I started getting the hang of things on the expert server, I wanted to get more involved in the community. So, I wanted to join a VA. Since there were so many, it was quite hard to choose. But, since I had to go with my gut. I had to join Southwest’s VA here. And wow was that not a mistake. I met even more people through the VA and many of the events they had put together.

I was involved in a couple VAs for awhile, some being Alaska and United. But my time for Infinite Flight got smaller and smaller as summer of 2019 started to roll in. So, I took a pretty long break from flying in the sim, and the forum.

When 19.4 came out, I was amazed by the C172 in my free version of the aircraft. So, I got a 1 month sub for the C172, and a bit of the A350. Enjoyed that subscription for the month, but didn’t renew it. Since school was starting back again and I had no time to fly anymore.

Fast forward to when 20.1 came out, I bought another 1 month sub again. Wanted to use all of the new procedures, the 772, but most of all, I wanted to experience the new cockpit of the 737. The developers did an amazing job in this update. So amazing, that I actually renewed my sub for a full year. Ever since then, been very happy with the way the simulator is feeling more and more realistic. So, I can’t wait for another couple updates on my subscription.

If you’ve made it this far, congrats. If you’re a person that just skipped to the bottom, that’s fine too. Just wanted to say some thank yous to some of the users here that known me for the years I’ve been here.

Little over 2.5 years has gone by, with the wind they have soared up above and past us in a blink of an eye, and we move every day forward, even till this day. I do feel a quite nostalgic, looking back at that time in late 2017, early 2018, when there used to be so many people I just got to meet here on IFC, those whom I’ve known for the longest, where some still are with us today, other’s moved on with life on a different way (path). One of those many amazing people back then was you Joseph and till this day, I do not regret joining this community for the people I have gotten to speak to here, has been a key part of my life.

Let’s hope another 1000 days will go by, with us all, here on this forum, together, no matter the good and less good times we may encounter. I’m happy to be mentioned in the post, I’m thankful for you being here with us, it’s been a good 1000 days gone by :)

Joseph! My man!
I can’t believe it has been two years since we first met here on the forum. We’ve flown dozens upon dozens of flights together, and it never gets boring. If you ever want to fly again, just shoot me a message.
You’ve been a great friend for the past two years, and hopefully many more to come!
I still have around 150 days here until I reach 1000 as well, so keep an eye out for that.

I can’t like your post yet due to the ridiculous amount of posts I’ve been liking this morning, but I can assure you that once my three hour cool down period is over I will.

Friendships are super important, so I’m very glad to be a part of your journey on the community.

Here’s to 1,000 more! 🥂
