  • How did you discover Infinite Flight, and what gave you the initiative to stay on the community and devote yourself?

  • Would you see yourself keeping in touch with us lot in the years to come? As you become an adult would you still want Infinite Flight to be a part of your life? Will I have to continue my journey here without your much needed Thunderboltisms?

  • If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be, and why? Family? Area? Away from anything?

  • When you’ve experienced some difficult times in the real world and turned to Infinite Flight and the community, who would you say helps you, and is there to support you? I can think of many members. 🙃
