Closing in on my 100th landing in Infinite Flight as part of my therapy recovering from a coma.

Hello everyone,

I’ve been thinking and hesitating for a while if I should write this topic as it might be a boring topic for most. But I decided to write it anyway.

Today I will perform my 100th landing in Infinite Flight and moving up to Grade 3. For me this is quite the achievement as playing Infinite Flight has helped me to fine tune the connections between my brain and my hands. Last year I’ve been squashed in my car between two trucks and been in a coma for 6 weeks. When I woke up the ability to use my hands and legs where almost non-existent but with the help of a fantastic team of doctors, nurses, physical therapists and my determination I am where I am to day. During my recovery one of my physical therapists suggested to try a flight simulator as a way to get better control over my hands and getting the right signals from my brain to my fingers. I started with Real Flight Simulator until it became too easy, since June I switched to Infinite Flight and it’s been difficult to master the art of landing as you have to monitor much more settings. Now I’m getting much better with every landing as the mobility of my hands still keeps improving. Not only have I fallen in love with aviation and every aspect that comes with it but I also regained the ability to participate in daily life again.

Not every take-off or landing deserves an award but I keep on improving. Infinite Flight is not only awesome to play, it is a lifestyle for everyone who’s heart is beating faster for aviation! That Infinite Flight can also help people who find themselves in the same situation I’ve been in is something that I want to tell, it does so much more for you than getting addicted to the game!

Greetings,

Eric
