A Shenzhen Fly-out!
Hello! I am considering hosting a series fly-outs of some of the less visited airports around the world. This means there will be no fly-outs of main and busy airports but instead, I will be focusing on airports that are rarely visited by any Infinite Flight pilots. Now before you go and sign up for a fly-out of a major hub airport (and forget about this event), I strongly suggest you consider signing up. Just because you have never heard of an airport doesn’t mean it’s a small airport with one tiny runway. In fact, all of the airports in I am considering featuring will have multiple, large runways! Depending on the amount of interest there is in this fly-out, I will either continue making more fly-outs with this theme, or switch to a different theme. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to send me (@yoshi_flyer) a PM.
Shenzhen is a large, bustling city located in south-eastern China. It is just north of Hong Kong (constantly “in the shadow” of VHHH in IF) and is situated next to the South China Sea. The city is very fast-growing and is the home to many large technology companies, earning it the nickname “China Silicon” (after the Silicon Valley). It is one of the richest cities in China and often has a much larger income than Beijing and Shanghai! The city of Shenzhen has the fourth tallest building in the world - the “Ping an IFC” (Infinite Flight Community! just kidding - International Finance Center) and also many beautiful theme parks. The airport has two runways but is undergoing a renovation so that there will be three runways in the future. The single terminal was also recently built and is modeled after a manta ray (pictures are below). I hope you learned something about the city of Shenzhen!

I am aware that people will most likely take gates with international destinations that they have heard of before, but I suggest you consider signing up for a shorter domestic route to a brand new city and airport! I will admit that I have never heard of over 3/4 of the destinations, but that doesn’t mean flying there won’t be fun. Don’t be afraid to take the trusty generic livery out for a short spin around the diverse landscape of China!
- More gates can be added/switched if necessary.
- There will most likely be no ATC during the event.
- I am not responsible for any violations/ghosts.
- More information will be sent a few days before the event through a group PM to all the pilots signed up.
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy! Thank you for viewing this event and I hope you can come!
