Practice Landings, Practice Takeoffs, Repeat the Process, Redo it till when you feel that, you’ve mastered the art of flying to that extent where you are confident, you have control of your flight. Do the practice on Solo Mode or Casual Server, that be your choice, but by redoing the same exercise, your memory will strengthen in learning, what is correct and what is wrong.

Test different Airplanes, try them out, all of them, feel what suits you best, what you can handle the best, it is different for every pilot. The Tutorials here on the forum gives you the basics to understand how to perform different manoeuvres and such, watch those and copy what the tutorial shows, and from there build up, by learning one plane at the time, start with the one you are most comfortable with.

A few things that are great to get a grip of, early on is, to know how to Takeoff and Landing properly, or as smoothly as possible but also to know when to descend, know how to step climb when flying heavy, long flight and how to properly respond to ATC when you enter Training Server and eventually Expert Server.


I Say; Practice, based on the tutorials, find what airplane you feel the most confident and comfortable with, and repeat the basics till they are integrated into your memory. Good Luck!

Your first win is joining this forum. Your second is asking for help and tips. You’re going to be just fine 😊

In addition to the good info above, check here for the IF pilot tutorials on YouTube. Some of the stuff is a bit dated, but you’ll learn a lot.

Have fun

Well for flying as said above, that just takes practice. One very common mistake is step climbing, so make sure you do that on all of your flights. If you’re new to the game, you probably won’t have access to expert server. When you get promoted to grade two and move into training server, you can get violations which will affect your grade, here is a list of them:


There is also ATC on training, but because it’s training server and anyone could be ATC, you’ll find a lot of inexperienced controllers. There is no punishment for not following ATC instructions, but it is still advised unless they are trolling you.
Once you get to grade three, you have access to expert server. Expert is reserved for serious users only and ATC have to pass a recruiting process to become a controller. They know what they are doing and will not troll you. They will enforce rules and procedures by ghosting, one ghost will send you off on an a free, all-inclusive one week trip back to training server (you get banned from expert for a week) Five of these in a year will restrict you until it’s been a year since your first one.
But, the most important thing is to have fun!


Hope you found this useful
