One Quest. Multiple Stops.

Back in July 2017, we set sail from the City of Lights on a tour around the globe with one goal: To finish what Amelia Earhart Started. Two years, 30 legs, and 10,000+ miles later, we’ve traversed some of the world’s most iconic destinations, beautiful landscapes, and challenging approaches from Europe to the Middle East, Oceania, then the Far East.

The fourth season of our flagship event series will take Infinite Flight’s most adventurous airmen across the Americas to 17 of dangerous and iconic airports. From the snow-capped mountains of Juneau, Alaska down to Rio de Janeiro, and then back up to the Big Apple, harrowing approaches and beautiful views await along the way!
