I was about 10, 6ish years ago when I started using Infinite flight without a subscription, it was something that I used most days to entertain myself.
February 2019 was when I got my first subscription, it was the first thing I paid for.
May 2019, only a few months into my subscription, I took my first flight. I was commonly referred to having the ‘death grip’ although I still knew how to fly without failure or much introduction needed. Hundreds of hours of flying in Infinite Flight, and no other sim I have ever been dedicated to using.
First flight, was a pretty cloudy day
So I kept using Infinite Flight each day, and kept having a couple of flying lessons every now and again, I attended the Infinite Flight Heathrow Meetup when I had practically nothing, knew no one, and literally was a nobody except a pain in the community. At the time talking to people I didn’t know definitely wasn’t my strong point so managed to just about fit in the crowd at the event :p.
Jumping to the present;
The past couple months I’ve had a couple flying lessons (thanks to COVID), with the next one I believe being this weekend, I’ve got some IF merchandise over time, and since the day I’ve brought my subscription, I have not gone a day without using Infinite Flight, and have carried my passion everywhere I’ve went. 12,000 hours of flying virtually in Infinite Flight, and it remains as the number 1 simulator I still use every day and continue devoting my time to wherever possible.
I haven’t got a PPL yet as I am still in training.
I proudly take Infinite Flight with me everywhere I go, as it is a large part of me, that fuels my passion to aviation.
