Grade 5 pilot routine

Hello everyone,

So happy to reach grade 5 after following the Infinite Flight for such a long time. At this moment, I wanted to check with all of the Grade 5 pilots if you have any tips on how to continue keeping this status, please feel free to comment down below.

Thank you and regards,


Your biggest thing to do is you need to keep your landing count high. Doing a few touch and goes each day will be one way to help you maintain grade 5


For me, I go to MMUN and there are a couple of airports near by to do continual T/Gs in a circuit. This will keep the landing high. My other thing is to find a low traffic ATC controlled airport and do patterns. The other way is to takeoff and do a T/G and then fly to your destination.

To be honest to you, I dont know how still I am grade 5, but I try sometimes to do patterns or a little flight

TYGD - Thank You, Good Day!


I’m no longer Grade 5, but to maintain Grade 5, fly at least once a day with 3-4 short flights or even patterns.


As long as you are flying a mix of shorter flights and or T&G and longer flights to keep flight hours up you will be fine.

Make sure you don’t fall into the Grade 5 Curse (getting set back to G3 with a level 1 violation)

I’ve been in and out of Grade 5 for a couple years now and it’s not that difficult to keep at that level.


Hi there,
I was grade 5 during COVID confinement! Down to a more down to earth grade 3 and just as happy (0 violations for a loooong time!)


What are the perks for such a grind ? Mostly, pain for our eyes .
