Introduction

Hello everyone! I am here today with a request of a unique C172 livery that I would like added to Infinite Flight. Here we have EI-GRX in its full black out livery based in Waterford Airport (EIWF) I would appreciate your support and feedback about this livery being added to IF. In this post I will give some information about the aircraft itself and why I would like this livery implemented. Without further ado let’s get into it!


About this Livery

EI-GRX formerly G-MRPT was was delivered to Waterford Aero Club in late 2019 from Leeds, England and is currently owned by the Aero Club for hour building and experience flights. It began its life in an Irish registration in February 2020 when it was repainted into the new registration.

Some routes flown in real life by this aircraft

  • EIWF-EICK (and return)
  • EIWF-EISG (and return)
  • EIWF-EINN (and return)
  • EIWF-EIWT (and return)

Why I would like this livery in Infinite Flight

Here are a few reasons on why I would like this livery showcased in Infinite Flight.

  • After flying this aircraft in 2020 I can say it was a real standout livery from the rest of the plain and bland liveries (one stripe etc.) that were present on the airfield at the time (picture doesn’t do justice but it looks so much better in person ;)
  • This particular paint scheme is unique and in my opinion will standout amongst the rest of the C172 fleet currently offered in IF
  • We do not yet have an Irish regged GA aircraft in the sim and with GA being so popular in Ireland it would be a welcoming addition to the C172 fleet
  • There is a wide range of routes that this particular aircraft flies in the real world but this livery obviously can be flown anywhere in the sim!

I hope this topic interests you in getting this particular paint scheme added. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

Definitely voting for this livery, has flown over my house a good few times and an all black 172 is really rare and interesting

Flew one of the few routes that GRX flies in the real world by student pilots tonight from Sligo to Waterford. Flight time was 1hr 23mins. Such a shame that I can’t do it in the amazing black livery but more votes will make this close to a reality!

That Cessna probably gets baked on the outside because of all the sunlight and heat it attracts

Not so much in Irish weather 😁

As I fly a few patterns in EIWF with an imaginary EI-GRX, here we have the real life GRX currently flying. I would really like this unique paint scheme to be introduced into IF as it is really underrated in my opinion ✈

It’d be so cool to have more flight school livery’s aswell, like Embry Riddle, AFTA (Atlantic Flight Training Academy) based in EICK, but also EIWT would be super cool to have.

Well fingers crossed and @AviatorJack dream will come true. This livery is stunning.

Ah ha I was thinking of making a thread for AFTA livery’s out of EICK. I would make AFTA dream in IF a reality same as @AviatorJack with EI-GRX.
