A Long Day of Flying for IFATC At Home!

So as I’m sure everyone know, yesterday was IFATC at Home. First of all, thanks @Tyler_Shelton for the great idea! And secondly, thank you everyone for all the support on This post. That was absolutely amazing. I really wanted to fly into a bunch of IFATC Controlled airports, so I did a bunch of flying yesterday, I flew 5 flights that took a total of 7 hours and 19 minutes. I started at 6:58 AM, went golfing with my dad between 8:30 and 12, and then after 12 I was in the air almost constantly until 8 PM.
These are photos from all of my flights during the IFATC at home event, put into one “compilation”

I love the Aspen ones. Both cause I was controlling & because it partially shows one of the busiest times that session. Was really fun!

@MJP_27 thanks! I’ll look at it in a couple hours as I’m not home right now :)

@Edivan_dcds. Thanks! And thanks for the ATC :)

@ktaviation thanks Kyle! Aspen is really fun, but stressful when it gets busy

@GameBoy_KIRB we’re you a Lufthansa A350 or TUI 737?

@Pingu JT definitely wasn’t me in the AA CRJ 😂

@Pertonics thank you! I love the scenery around Fort Myers, it’s awesome

@Kevinsoto1502 thanks for the ATC Kevin! I’m not huge fan of group flights to be honest, but maybe I’ll be able to do one sometime

@APH71 thank you! :D

@Darius_Glover thanks Darius! And thanks for opening Philly, I saw you open for almost 7 hours :)

@Lucas_Piedra thanks Lucas! It’s a really fun approach but seems sketchy sometimes

Stunning pictures! I managed one flight (and that one didn’t even have ATC…), but you used the day as it should be done.

Though choice between the KLM Cityhopper and American B787 for my favourite picture. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks a lot Julian! When I saw the low moon taking off from PHL, I knew that I was going to take a photo like that 😂

And it wasn’t easy to fly that many routes, especially with a 4 hour gap in the middle, and it definitely got boring at some parts, but it was really cool to see all the airports open and the amount of traffic they were getting!
