Group Flight: London Heathrow to Los Angeles!


Hello everyone, welcome to another official group flight! This time we’ll be flying from London Heathrow to Los Angeles. This isn’t any ordinary group flight though… We’ll be flying the exact same route as the one featured in our previous YouTube video. We converted the real world flight plan to make it work in Infinite Flight using a flight plan tool developed by @AdamCallow. Let’s go flying!

IFATC will provide service where able, so remember to always be in contact with them if they are open. This includes centre and departure frequencies.

Flight Plan

For this flight we’ll be using a custom flight plan. We’ve managed to do this by downloading the KML file from FlightRadar24, then converting it into a .fpl file which is compatible with Infinite Flight. To use this flight plan, all you have to do is download the file then open the flight plan in Infinite Flight.

Note: adjust flight plan to include ATC preferred SIDs/STARs when filing your FPL. The .fpl file includes the fixes from the real world procedures followed at the time. Ever changing weather conditions might require you to change the dep/arr on the day of the event! Feel free to copy a staff members flight plan if you’re unsure.

It does not open on IF, but for me there is a difference.

Let me try to explain: the link opens normally and after that it says “open in infinite flight”, I click on it, but nothing happen.
