User Of The Year

The biggest of the awards, the IFC User of the Year, an honor given to someone whose dedication, contributions, and character are recognized by the community. Only the best of the best will receive this award, and this year, this is no different. Presenting the top three users of the year.


Third Place: Receiving the third place vote is a staff member whose eccentric lifestyle may seem unusual to many, but in reality, he’s a welcoming, helpful, and outgoing person whose clothing can be turned into liveries, it’s @MishaCamp.


Second Place: It was a three-way tie at second, with Regular of the Year @MJP_27 and his friendly personality, alongside knowledgable member and WestJet Virtual Group colleague @Ecoops123. Another VA CEO joins them, hailing from San Francisco, @ran, the CEO of ANVA and an experienced events creator also made it into the top three.


The 2020 IFC Users of the Year are @ShaneAviation and @ToasterStroodie. Both IFATC Supervisors, Shane and Danny have shown unparalleled commitment to their duties at IFATC, and their frequent assistance on the PM is second to none. Both of these users are extremely deserving of the award, and it is our pleasure to present it to them.


Well, that’s it! Congratulations to all of the winners, and we look forward to what will be an amazing 2021 with Infinite Flight and the Infinite Flight Community. Special thanks to @JarrettFlies, @ran, and the team at V1, Rotate for their assistance in making this yearly tradition possible, we look forward to doing this again in 12 months!

It’s fine, I’m sure we can just ban anyone who thought Josh was funny. Something is clearly wrong there.

I’d be happy to provide that information ;)

100%, they obviously don’t have a sense of humour… just like Josh. 😂

There should of been a award for the best upside down pilot… we know who would win that! Cough, cough.

It is an incredible honor to even be mentioned in such a prestigious Award Ceremony. Congrats to everyone that won something or even got a vote. All members of the community are truly amazing and we wouldn’t have such an amazing system without everyone.


To start, my VA, Air China Virtual was given the honor of the best new Virtual Airline of 2020. I want to give a special thanks to the founding 4, @JulietTango, @Joseph.Barnett, and @ShaneAviation, your hard work certainly doesn’t go un-noticed and this is certainly an indicator that your work is among the best in the community. CAVA will prepare an official thank you statement later, but WOOHOO!


Secondly, thank you to anyone that voted for me as the best VA Staff Member of 2020. Over 90 VA’s and well over 250 staff members, and to think that I come as even a consideration for best staff is honestly the craziest thing ever. I really owe a lot to @Jon_H, @mwe2187, @Blake_Stephens, and all of the staff at any of the VA’s I am apart of. Without their continuous guidance, I wouldn’t have any of the knowledge I do today. I also could not be a good staff member without the help of the best staff team in IF, the staff @AirChinaVirtual. You guys keep me on my feet and continue to inspire me daily through the amazing work you all do. This is a win for all of us!

Moving forward I promise to continue serving the VA community to the best of my ability through leadership and innovation. Once again, THANK YOU SO MUCH to anyone that even considered me for best VA Staff of 2020. Here’s to 2021!

Like this post for a recount! I should have won every award 😡

Just kidding, congratulations everyone who won.

You all deserve it. Let’s not get mad at who won and who lost. Let’s keep this civilized because we are all in a community. Not in an evil place where we fight against each other on everything we say.

Thanks for the mention, really means a lot! 🙂

Couldn’t have done it without @Javier_Blancas though, he also deserves lots of credit too. 😉


Congrats to everyone who made it up there along with me!

And even if you either didn’t make it and win an award, you are still a vital part of this community and are great to have around.

Cheers!

Yeah, and we would know who would win best IOM person. The population of the IOM is only 1, so not much competition. 😂
