Here is some more information you can find on Wikipedia.

First, how about a little information about the title. “Crossroads of America” is the motto of the state of Indiana. Indianapolis is the capital of the state of Indiana. Indianapolis is known as the racing capital of the world, as we host the annual Indy 500. In this event, I tried to incorporate routes spanning all the way from the east coast, to the west coast, and everywhere in between to really demonstrate the “Crossroads”

Times: This event will take place at 1800z as seen in the title. I put together some
“Time conversions” down below. If you need help finding your time, please PM me.

Cargo Gates:

As many of you might know, KIND is a major hub for FedEx.
We have 55 cargo aprons, most of which are operated by FedEx, but Cargolux has a stop over at KIND on their way to KLAX.


FedEx VA is hosting a group flight to KEWR. You DO NOT have to be a part of FedEx VA to attend.

Here’s how to sign up:

1: Choose an aircraft. We will only be using the MD-11F, DC-10F, and B777F in the FedEx Express livery.

2: Select a gate. There are limited B777F gates. Be sure to only choose a gate with your selected aircraft is listed.

3: You’re all set! Remember the date December 27th, and be sure to check out FedEx VA’s official thread HERE:
FedEx Express Virtual | Now Recruiting Pilots | VA updates!

I will not assign each individual cargo gate a specific plane or route. Instead, I will give a list of possible aircraft and routes you can fly, and let you choose.

List of Possible FedEx Routes:
Routes Recommended Aircraft
KIND-KMEM MD-11/ DC-10/ B767/ B757
KIND-KDTW MD-11/ DC-10/ B757
KIND-KEWR MD-11/ DC-10/ B757
KIND-KDEN B767/ B757
KIND-KPDX MD-11/ B767/ B757
KIND-KMSP B767/ B757

Please don’t hesitate to add more routes to this list as long as they are realistic!

If you are interested in this route, please request it below and you will receive a gate well before the event.

For the FedEx B757 and B767, you will have to use the “Generic” liveries as we do not currently have the FedEx livery on these planes.


*Gates with an N/A are gates I couldn’t use because they required the American ERJ livery’s or I couldn’t find a realistic route. If all the gates fill up, we can use the “Unmarked” livery.

*The Delta 717 is replacing the MD80, as we don’t have that aircraft in Infinite Flight.

*The ETE to destination is just an ESTIMATE. Your flight time could be more or less.

*Please just deal with the names I used on the flight times. They are just used so the times could be somewhat organized.

Things to note before you sign up:

  • Be sure you can attend, don’t just sign up for a gate because you like the flight. Do your best to check your calendars.

  • When you sign up, you only have to include the gate and your destination (for instance you could say, “I would like GATE 100 to Atlantas please!”)

  • If you need to cancel, please do so as soon as possible so there is more of an opportunity for others to take the gate.

  • As stated above, you must arrive at your gate no more than 10 minutes before the event. If you are not there with 5 minutes to go, I could potentially open up your gate for any other last minute user to join.

  • This event is again on EXPERT SERVER. This obviously means no trolling, as you will be ghosted.

  • I will post runway information a few days in advance before the event. I believe we will be using runways 23R, 23L, and 14, but that is subject to change depending on the winds.

  • Most importantly, have fun! Be sure to post your best screenshots once the event has ended so we can all look at them. (Especially those who decide not to show up 😋.)

If you plan to stream the event, please let me know in the post so I can put your name here!

Oh and also, the time conversions are not needed as it automatically tells you the time in your time zone here:
