I’m a lifelong flight sim aficionado. For quite some time I have gone back-and-forth between IF and Aerofly. I have enjoyed and tended to prefer Aerofly’s graphics but hate how much storage it takes up on my phone. I’ve also been bored by the physics… Just feeling like it wasn’t right and more “arcadey”. I finally tried IF Pro and I have gotten completely sucked in to flying routes all over the world, visiting places I’ve never been, or places I love, and flying imaginary passengers anywhere I want to go. I’m addicted to it now! It’s my escape and every day I’m thinking of a new route to fly.
Then this week I join this community and I can’t believe the number of people that are here who enjoy exactly what I do! I love reading the discussions almost as much as I love flying IF! I haven’t been bold enough to try multiplayer yet. I feel like I’ll do something stupid that will make other people mad. But maybe I’ll give it a shot sometime soon.
I’m finally ready to delete Aerofly and want the developers to know how much I appreciate the hard work it has to take to create and maintain such a quality sim. I know some people complain about this and that. But if you had told me 10 years ago that I would be flight simming every night on my phone… and have global scenery (without storing it on my phone) with such immersion, I never would’ve believed you.
A tip of the cap to the developers and the community. What an amazing group this is! I hope I can get even more out of IF in the years to come. My next step is to try to learn multiplayer. But I’m just so grateful IF is here at all!
Keep flying! ✈️ ☀️
