Infinite Flight, A Decade in Replay Mode


As the decade comes to an end, I thought we should take a trip into Replay Mode and see all the innovations and hard work that has gone into this decade of infinite flight.

2011-2014 - Unkown


2011-2014 is back when the community did not exist. Updates were perhaps never announced or they are burried deep somewhere in the old facebook community, so here is a montage of old infinite flight pictures and videos found online.

A toast to the decade past, and the decade to come.

Infinite Flight has changed and developed into something that we love and cherish. Infinite Flight has become more than a hobby to some of us, it has allowed us to meet new people and create a whole community centered around the app. I have no doubt in my mind that with the coming years Infinite Flight will continue to grow and innovate, showing us all exactly what the app, its developers, and most importantly its community are capable of. Thank you Infinite Flight.

this is sad

Have been here since 2015, I remember the days when I always use to fly from KLAX to KNUC or KNUC to KSAN and vice-versa… (my favorite region in IF back then) before global

Looking at this just makes all the memories from when I started in 2011 too now. Does anyone remember the good ole KLAX-KNUC-KSAN-KLAX Routes?

Lmao, I have to say my favorite region was NorCal, I used to fly from KSJC to KSFO and back again, I didn’t have any aviation knowledge and just learned as I went, now I’m a full on pro who wants to go to pilot school, all thanks to infinite flight

I joined IF when I was 11 or 12… so seeing this almost many years later is like joyful for me. I dreamed that I wanted to be a pilot when I was 6… I could never afford a flight sim until IF came out. I have been hooked to IF Since… I honestly thank IF for bringing me to where I am now, I’m 24 Years old still on the simulator even though I achieved my dream of becoming a pilot and I honestly think it could’ve been because of IF. Amazing Community Here… Amazing People ;) Infinite Flight has seriously improved and I think it is one of the Best Mobile Simulators out there and a good place to start!

Wow. Time really does fly huh? I still remember those days back in summer 2017 when we would all anxiously browse the global tracking thread and getting crazy hyped up when a new screenshot of global was posted. Crazy how that was over 2 years ago now. Thank you IF devs for all that you have accomplished!

I saw this in play store back in 2015 but couldn’t buy app at the time but since getting the game I have not regretted it since 😃

I remember back in 2016 when I was looking for a flight Simulator then searched for flight simulators on the play store. I didn’t hesitate when I finally purchased Infinite flight. I didn’t played that much cus I could barely take off from the runway. I remember my first flight was with the Airbus A380. I was such a noob. Pull engines to full power and the plane wasn’t moving forgetting the brakes were on😂. I finally YouTube how to take off and my first takeoff felt like I won a jackpot. Fast forward I purchased the pro subscription and never looked back. I’m so proud to see how far this Simulator have come. I know there’s more to come in the future.

Glad to see I’m not the only one who thinks screenshots had just a little bit more magic back then!
