Happy New Year! I am excited to reveal the winners of this (last?) year’s awards after a great round of voting. As per the norm, there will probably be some controversy, but with that in mind, please refrain from stirring up arguments and the such in the replies.

Special thanks to those who voted me for funniest topic of the year, it would t be possible without this beautiful community! I will continue to make funny topics and even make more varieties of topic in general, thank you guys. :)

I have a question… What really defines “the best pilot”?


Glad to be the CEO of this amazing VA! Thanks everyone who voted for it!

Good question i don’t know its the community that can answer that i think.

Doing the complete opposite of how you fly on Infinite Flight… 😉😜


Well i personally think the “Best pilot” role wpuld go to someone who maintains the realism, has a sense of proffesionalism, is mature, and flies to the highest of standards, Congrats on the Award @CrazyBee


Of course this won…

Congratulations to everyone who won! Here’s to a successful 2023 for Infinite Flight!

let me suffer in peace


I have two examples:

To land smoothly two 747-8 at the same time in Frankfurt with 10 seconds difference

Or to taxi ( the front gear perfectly aligned with the taxi way strip ) while you land 100% perfectly with the MD-11F in Hongkong

Without no doubt … he is one of the best pilots in IF


Man what a day to be the Event & Route manager of @AF-KLM_VA. Best VA for the 2nd year in a row.
Also congrats to all winners! 2022 was a great year for sure!

Also, now that we won the ‘Best VA’ award, I can now say that at least France & the Netherlands have won something in 2022 :D

@Manav_Suri What a job! Hats off for you. All the work you’ve done, all the time you spend for this VA… Crazy, just crazy, can’t even describe it. I would not be a part of this great VA without you and not be in the position without the trust you, @Jean-Pierre_Krop and @John370 have in me.

@Woutopia we keep rocking on those routes! You also made my life easy with the amount of work you put in the routes. Great to be part of this!


Congratulations everyone!

You’re missing one, and you know exactly what it is.


By definition, not you, considering you’re the fake pilot in here.
