AsJay7879 Infinite Flight World Tour

Howdy Folks!

For the past week, I have embarked on the decision of doing a ‘world tour’ of Infinite Flight’s Casual Server, where I intend to fly around every continent of the planet over the next few weeks and end the tour in my home international airport of Christchurch, New Zealand (CHC/NZCH).

In the early hours of this morning (November 16, 2021, NZDT), I flew from Amman, Jordan (AMM/OJAI) and landed in Cairo, Egypt (CAI/HECA) as “Egypt Air 708”, leaving behind the Asian continent after flying starting in Tokyo-Haneda and connecting through Beijing, Shanghai-Pudong, Hong Kong, Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi, Singapore-Changi, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Phuket, Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi (again), New Delhi, Mumbai, Muscat, Doha, Kuwait City and Amman which finally lead me to be in Cairo as of now.

So now, I’m to begin the Africa Leg of my Infinite Flight World Tour starting with a flight between Cairo, Egypt and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia as “Ethiopian 453 Heavy”, before continuing around the African continent and making my way up north to Europe.

Quite of lot of work, dedication and flying hours to go, but I’m it’s going to be worth it. Plus with all this flying, I might just achieve my status as Grade 4.

This sounds like a really cool idea! Are you going to use this topic as a tracking thread? I also switched this post to the #live category as it seems to fit there best.

Thank you, it’s definitely keeping me busy! I’m not sure what a tracking thread is, but I’m probably going to give updates along the way as I progress on my tour. Thank also for switching the category, as this what my first thread post, I wasn’t too sure where to put it.

Just thought I’d give an update about my progress and whereabouts on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’.

Just a few moments ago I landed an Air Mauritius A330-900neo into Port Louis (MRU/FIMP) from Saint-Denis (RUN/FMEE) as “Air Mauritius 219 Heavy” as the fifth leg of my tour of the African continent. Earlier I landed a Corsair A330-900neo into Saint-Denis (RUN/FMEE) from Mayotte (DZA/FMCZ) as “Corsair 773 Heavy”. Both of these flights are some of the more challenging flights as they were the first time I’ve ever departed and landed at airports located on small isolated islands.

Later today (November 19, 2021, NZDT), I’ve off on my next flight, a four-hour journey between Port-Louis, Mauritius (MRU/FIMP) and Johannesburg, South Africa (JNB/FAOR) as “Air Mauritius 851 Heavy” piloting another Air Mauritius A330-900neo.

So far Africa’s definitely been the most challenging continent, with its high elevations above sea level, which have had me learning quickly how to judge the landings into such airports.

Oh well, just four more legs of the tour of Africa in my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’, before I head my way up and around a continent I’m more aware of and where I’ve spent most of my flying days in the game, that of course being Europe.

Just thought I’d give an update about my progress and whereabouts on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’.

Just a few moments ago I landed a TAAG Angola Airlines into Luanda, Angola (LAD/FNLU) from Cape Town, South Africa (CPT/FACT) as “Angola 580” as the eighth leg of my tour of the African continent, ending my time in South Africa as last night (November 21, 2021, NZDT), I operated a domestic service between Johannesburg (JNB/FAOR) and Cape Town (CPT/FACT) piloting an all-green Kulula Boeing 737-800 as "Comair 103”. Both of these recent flights were eventful as I’m still getting used to the high elevations above sea level upon arrival at my next destination.

My next flight which is likely to be later today (November 22, 2021, NZDT) or on November 23, 2021 NZDT, I’m off on my next flight, another four-hour journey between Luanda, Angola (LAD/FNLU) and Lagos, Nigeria (LOS/DNMM) as “Angola 564” piloting the exact same TAAG Angola Airlines Boeing 737-700 I flew on my most recent flight as mentioned above.

I’m then onto Casablanca, Morroco as “Royal Air Maroc 554” which is yet another flight last four or so hours. I can safely say that I’ve vastly underestimated the size of the African continent and am looking forward to getting up to Europe, which I’m more aware of, of course, because that’s where I’ve spent most of my flight hours within the game as a whole, as well as the United States which I’ll get to later in the tour.

Oh well, just two more legs within Africa to go before I begin the process of my whereabouts within the European continent. I haven’t drawn up an itinerary yet, though I know I’m to begin in Lisbon, Portugal (LIS/LPPT). But for now, I must get some rest before my last two very long legs up West Africa.

I’m here with another one of my updates on my progress and whereabouts on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’, specifically of the Casual Server.

Tonight or in a few moments I’m going to take my next second transcontinental flight within the tour, this time leaving the African continent behind and welcoming myself into Europe for the first time on the tour, piloting a TAP Air Portugal Airbus A320 as “Air Portugal 144T” between Casablanca, Morocco (CMN/GMMN) and into Lisbon, Portugal (LIS/LPPT), which from there, I’ll continue to various places within Europe which that’ll likely to take quite some time, but in saying that, I’m excited about this part of my ‘world tour’, as I’ve spent most of my time flying within Europe, prior to myself even beginning the tour itself.

To conclude about my thoughts on flying around Africa throughout the last 10 flights of the tour, it’s definitely been the most challenging continent I’ve flown within, my landings haven’t been the best and that I guess is because of the high elevations above sea level and the multiple landings I had to do that included a strong crosswind. The best landing or flight in general during my time flying around Africa would have to be my flight between Saint-Denis (RUN/FMEE) and Port Louis, Mauritius albeit a 44-minute flight.

But for now, it’s onto Europe. So once again, thanks for taking the time to read through this update of my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’ and until the next one, this is user and Infinite Flight pilot AsJay7879 signing off.

I’m here with another one of my updates on my progress and whereabouts on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’, specifically of the Casual Server.

Tonight or in a few moments I’m going to depart on my tenth with my tour of Europe, piloting a Tarom Airbus A318 as “Tarom 231E” between Bucharest, Romania (OTP/LROP) and Budapest, Hungary (BUD/LHBP), which will lead me towards the North-Eastern part of Europe before heading west to other various places within Europe.

To conclude about my thoughts on flying around Europe throughout the last 9 flights of the tour, it’s definitely been a lot better than the majority of the tour I did of Africa, probably for the exception of my last landing in Istanbul, Turkey (IST/LTFM) piloting a Turkish Airlines Boeing 737-900 while battling a 30-knot crosswind from my east, it wasn’t easy nor pleasant, but was a landing nonetheless.

But for now, it’s onto Budapest, Hungary piloting the ‘Baby Bus’ Airbus A318. So once again, thanks for taking the time to read through this update of my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’ and until the next one, this is user and Infinite Flight pilot AsJay7879 signing off.

I’m here once again with another update on my progress and whereabouts on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’, specifically within the Casual Server.

Tonight, or in fact, a few moments time, I’m going to embark on my twenty-eighth leg within my tour of Europe, piloting a Ryanair Boeing 737-800 as “Ryanair 9PX” between Manchester, England (MAN/EGCC) and Dublin, Ireland (DUB/EIDW), which will in fact be my final flight within mainland Europe as the next flight will take me to Tenerife-South (TFS/GCTS) in the Canary Islands, that flight aboard yet another Ryanair Boeing 737-800, before departing towards continental South America.

To conclude about my thoughts on flying around Europe throughout my last twenty-seven flights. It’s definitely been a blast, I’ve had some of the best flights I’ve ever had in the game as a whole, I’ve learnt a lot and I’m looking forward to ending my time in Europe on a high note as I feel like I’ve been through the toughest period of the tour as a whole, which has been transiting through Amsterdam-Schipol (AMS/EHAM) and the London area, in particular, London-Heathrow (LHR/EGLL) which most of the players in Infinite Flight know is quite chaotic in Casual Server, but I made it out unscathed and I’m continuing stronger than I have been prior to myself embarking on this tour in general.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to read through this update, I hope you’re enjoying them while I’m making my way around the world on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’.

I’m here with another one of my updates about my progress and whereabouts on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’, specifically within the freedom of Casual Server.

I just a few short moments, I’m to begin my sixth flight within the South American continent piloting a LATAM Chile Airbus A320 from Santiago, Chile (SCL/SCEL) to La Paz, Bolivia (LPB/SLLP) as “LAN Chile 892”, before continuing on to Lima, Peru (LIM/SPJC) afterwards, which is likely to be where I wrapped things up for the night. Over the last few days I’ve trekked my way south from Bermuda landing into Nassau in the Bahamas, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, San Juan in Puerto Rico, Sint Maarten, Port of Spain in Trinidad and Tobago, Manaus, Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo in Brazil, Buenos Aires in Argentina before finally making my way to Santiago in Chile where I’ve about to depart from.

To conclude before I make tracks on my next flight on this world tour of mine, I just want to say how much joy and excitement that this journey has been for me so far, 68 flights have led me to be where I am in the tour so far and I cannot wait to continue my journey around the world. The funny but sad reality of it all is that I’ve been to more places and on more flights, than I have in person, which I’m only certain will change in the future.

But again, thank you for taking the time to read through this update, I do hope you’re enjoying them while I’m making my way around the world on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’. Though for now, I’m off to La Paz, Bolivia, so until the next update, this is user and Infinite Flight pilot AsJay7879 signing off.

Thank you, it’s certainly kept me busy! To think that I started this entire world tour in Tokyo-Haneda (HND/RJTT) and have been around Asia, Africa, Europe and now almost South America. I have a long way to go, as I have the United States and Canada up ahead, after trekking through Central America of course.

It’s been a while! But here I am back again with another update regarding my progress and whereabouts on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’, specifically within the freedom of the Casual Server.

As of late, I’m well into my adventures within the United States of America, in fact, I’m about to embark on my 21st flight within this great nation. But not only that! 17 days after beginning this tour, I’m about to embark on my 100th flight around the world! This monumental flight is going to take me between Chicago O’Hare (ORD/KORD) to Detriot (DTW/KDTW) piloting a United Express Embraer 170 as “SkyWest 5360”, which I just hope goes to plan as the arrival leg into Chicago O’Hare (ORD/KORD) from Milwaukee (MKE/KMKE) at the controls of an American Eagle Mitsubishi CRJ-700… wasn’t pleasant at all.

To think that I’ve come so far in this tour and yet I’ve got so much more to go, especially within North America which then leads me to Oceania, in particular the Pacific Islands, Australia, Papua New Guinea and home country of New Zealand where this entire tour is placed to finish.

I’d quickly just like to thank @Marina for their brief appearance in this tour a few days, whilst I was taxiing out of Salt Lake City, I thought it was quite a cool moment to have someone so significant in this game of Infinite Flight whilst I was on my way around the tour.

To conclude before I make tracks on my next flight, the 100th of the tour, I just want to mention that the last update of mine was exactly 31 flights ago where I was leaving Santiago, Chile, proving that I’m not mucking around at all, I’m dedicated to complete what I’ve set myself out to accomplish and I’m determined to make it to my home airport in Christchurch, New Zealand (CHC/NZCH) to complete this tour, which is something I cannot wait for.

But again, thank you for taking the time to read through this update, I do hope you’re enjoying them while I’m making my way around the world on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’.

I’m back at it with another update regarding my progress and whereabouts as I trek around the globe on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’, within the freedom of the Casual Server.

Within the three weeks since my last update, I’ve flown the entire mid-east and east coastline of the United States, as well and hoping over to Cuba. I’ve also travelled across Canada from east to west and travelled from Anchorage, Alaska down to the Hawaiian Islands where I am as of now. In roughly 15-30 minutes I am to embark on my 4th transcontinental flight and 140th tour flight overall between Honolulu (HNL/PHNL) to Papeete (PPT/NTAA) piloting an Infinite Flight Airlines Airbus A350-900 as “N359XW Heavy”, which will officially mark my end of my time flying around the Americas (Caribbean, South America, Central America and North America) and taking me over to my home and last continent/region of the tour, Oceania.

Flying around and within the Americas has been unreal, to think that I flew 63 individual flights within North America, with 52 of them being in the United States alone. It’s hard to think of a favourite flight of the Americas leg of the tour, though overall, I would say that it’s been a huge success. I’m just excited to get to my home continent/region of Oceania, but without the added pressure of landing into Papeete in Tahiti after a flight that’ll surely be pushing five to six hours of flight time.

To conclude, before I make tracks on my flight, I want to quickly mention that I began this tour 68 days (2 months, 7 days) ago and to think I’m about to depart to my last continent/region. It’s definitely been a blast. I’m dedicated as ever to complete what I’ve set out to achieve and I’m determined to make it to my home airport of Christchurch, New Zealand (CHC/NZCH).

Thank you again for taking the time to read through this update, I do hope you’re enjoying these updates and potentially following along as I’m making my way around the world. Though for now, I’m of to Papeete, so until the next update, this is user and Infinite Flight pilot AsJay7879 signing off.

I’m back here again with another update regarding my progress and whereabouts as I travel around the world on my ‘Infinite Flight World Tour’, specifically among the freedoms of the Casual Server.

During the last two weeks since my last updates, I’ve been flown the majority of the continent of Oceania, including Papeete (Tahiti), Rarotonga (Cook Islands), Apia (Samoa), Suva (Fiji), Nadi (Fiji), Noumea (New Caledonia), Guam, Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea), Honiara (Solomon Islands) as well as Hamilton Island, Townsville, Cairns, Darwin, Broome, Alice Springs, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra, Sydney, the Gold Coast and Brisbane in Australia of which as of 10 minutes ago (at the time) I departed on the 165th flight of the tour bound for Norfolk Island located in the South Pacific Ocean between New Caledonia and New Zealand while at the controls of a Qantas Boeing 737-800 as “Qantas 183”, which will then lead me to my final country of the tour and my home country, New Zealand, where in just five flights time, I’ll officially complete this world tour.

Flying around my home continent has been quite amazing as well as daunting, particularly between the Pacific Islands where I had not much room for error in the event of executing a go-around if and when I needed to. Though it’s been great to be flying around on airlines that I see more locally and that I’ve seen and travelled on personally. During this part of the tour, I managed to achieve quite a milestone in Infinite Flight as a whole, after landing my flight between Darwin (DRW/YPDN) and Broome (BME/YBRM) I achieved Grade 4 status, which was one of the goals I set out to tick off whilst on my journey around the world.

To conclude, I must say that I’ve learnt a lot in myself and during the game of Infinite Flight, in particular of how to manage and operate a flight plan, land an aircraft in heavy crosswinds and most of about goal setting from a personal perspective and achieving the goals that put before myself, because I didn’t just come up with the idea of this world tour for the fun of it, I did it because I was going through a very hard period in my life and chose to put my mind to something positive and challenging and to think I’m completing the tour after four more flights within my home country before the last and final flight makes me feel very proud of myself.

Thank you again for taking the time to read through this update, I do hope you’re enjoying these updates and potentially following along as I’m making my way around the world. Though for now, I’m off to monitor my flight, so, until the next update, this is user and Infinite Flight pilot AsJay7879 signing off.
