This week we practice our transatlantic crossings for this Friday Night Flight! Not sure what these are or how to use them, head to our User Guide for more!
Airports will be open on both sides of the Atlantic, allowing you to fly a large selection of routes. These airports will all have required SIDs and STARs in their ATIS, and aircraft will be required to fly these alongside using a transatlantic route where applicable. The hub airports have predetermined STARs that you can find below, and these will be in use all day.
Please be aware that all aircraft must use the established STARs when flying in to the HUB airports. Aircraft will not be given access to the airspace without these. VFR flying is not permitted at these airports.
What is the fastest subsonic transatlantic crossing?
- United Airlines B772 KEWR - EGLL (5h6m)
- Virgin Atlantic A333 KJFK - EGKK (5h13m)
- BA B747 KJFK - EGLL (4h56m)
So, post your best screenshots on Instagram or Twitter and tag us for a chance to have one featured on our social media pages. Simply tag us using @infiniteflight, or use hashtags #infiniteflight and #fridaynightflight. We look forward to seeing all your amazing photos!
