22MAY21 / 1800Z - Infinite Flight International Airshow @ Elmendorf AFB, AK (PAED)

ARCTIC THUNDER

This May, the skies over Anchorage will thunder as the largest airshow event of the year makes its return to Infinite Flight! Last year we showcased the true art of aerobatics and proudly introduced a professional airshow event to the community. IFIA 2020 was our first large scale and high quality event, with an incredible lineup of talented performers coupled with the amazing support from our VA partners, IFIA 2020 truly made it’s mark within this community and set the standard for future airshow events.

This year marks the 2nd annual Infinite Flight International Airshow, last year we held IFIA in the hot and sunny city of Jacksonville, Florida, this year we decided to do something quite different. The 2021 Infinite Flight International Airshow will be held in the heart of America’s final frontier, the great state of Alaska. “Arctic Thunder” is Alaska’s largest and most famous airshow, being held at the historic Elmendorf Air Force Base.

Best unintentional belated birthday gift ever. Can’t wait to send the Raptor up and rep the AK Tails!

By the way, if you have anything about the show, just ask me or any of the event staff. And by the way, we’d love any external help making this show better for all. See you there!

By the way, bear in mind this important new feature to better the standard of the Infinite Flight Airshow, we recently included a QC ride (Quality Check Ride), so performances cannot be just high speed passes or buzzing the crowd and killing eardrums. This show’s going to be more professional and showmanship-oriented, so we are definitely looking for some real aerobatic talent to join us on the show line. A good show isn’t without practice! 😉

And here’s a few pointers for those looking for ideas for a quality performance: Try to recreate a real demo flown in the past or present and/or optionally add your own improvs to it. YouTube’s a great friend in this case. Get creative, construct a routine and memorize it! Get your friends in on the action with a formation demo or even try to Snap Roll an XCub (imma do just that 😂). Anything is possible, but just respect the box.

Also, help our narrators out and give them a script or something. I don’t like stuttering on the mic. 😬
