Home Careers Scheduled Routes Flight Booking

Welcome to the Infinite Flight Air Force! We are offering pilots a little more than the ordinary boring Point A to B routes. Fly our state of the art 5th Generation F22 fighter aircraft or join our Air Transport fleet to provide aid & assistance to civilians across the globe, or transport passengers from all walks of life wherever and whenever the need arises.

We simulate a real world military organisation with a realistic rank structure. We are breaking new ground in how VAs operate by changing how we certify pilots on aircraft, how flights and missions are allocated and bringing a real community feel by encouraging formation flying during fighter patrols and combat missions.

Force Construct

We have 3 groups building the structure of our forces:-

No.1 Gp

No.1Gp

1 Gp deals with all aspects of training and has centres based all across the world. Our Ab Initio package takes pilots through the basic principles of flight, flight planning and ground school. Here pilots will develop knowledge and skills as part of a small β€œsquadron”, with a class of 4-10 pilots going through together at the same time. Following our carefully planned syllabus, the pilots learn as part of a team, unaided by instructors unless there is a particular query. Post this phase our crews are sent to either the ME or FJ wings, our Multi-Engine training gets our pilots ready to fly our larger aircraft - beginning training in the Q-400 Dash-8. While our FJ crews learn how to fly the faster, β€œpointier” fast jets, starting in the dual seated F14 Tomcat.

No.2 Gp

No. 2 Gp

2 Gp is our fighter wing, encompassing components from frontline, ground attack and display airframes. A small number of airbases across the globe are home to these specialist units, however our display team is based at our HQ. From our legendary training group aircraft, the F14 Tomcat to our brand new F22 Raptors we conduct a wide variety of tasks, with our pilots able to cross train amongst all the airframes - our pilots gain a well rounded skill set. We currently own just 1 squadron of F22’s, numbering 18 aircraft, with a further 18 aircraft on order.

No.3 Gp

No. 3 Gp

3 Gp is made up of our Air Transport fleet, transporting essential supplies, passengers and equipment right across the globe. From our C130, to the B777-200F and now the MD11F - these aircraft transport airframes to airshows and conduct air drops to troops on the ground. Our passenger carrying fleet consists of the B737-700, B757-200 and B777-200LR. Our future fleet plan is being amended, and pending funding agreements we will be purchasing a number of B787 aircraft to accommodate our longer range routes and tasks.

The additional of Air to Air refuelling has seen 3Gp take on an additional role using one of our our most recently upgraded aircraft, the KDC10. Pilots require a special qualification to fly this aircraft for IFAF.


Our Fleet

The IFAF fleet is an ever evolving and adjusting machine, with aircraft recently β€œretired” to take on additional and secretive roles our training fleet has received an entire overhaul by giving our Officer Recruits turbojet aircraft right from the beginning and only getting bigger and faster from there.

Personnel Responsibilities

Our personnel are the core of our business, operating to the very best of their abilities through our training packages and excelling even further with our state of the art technology. Our Air Force has 4 core values that we abide by, these are where our rules are based and any violation has consequences ranging from 24 hour posting all the way to dismissal.

R.I.L.E

Respect - of those around you, of the protocols in place and of the IFC. Respect means you aid and assist any member of the IFC or our VA.

Integrity - means truthfulness. Being honest and truthful allows a full account of any situation, it means you will fly each and every mission to the very best of your ability and should an unfortunate event occur - give our support network all the information required to assist you both within IF, IFC and the real world.

Life - nothing is more important than your real life. Taking care of yourself means you will perform to a higher standard within IF. Family, friends and outdoor hobbies make you who you are and we aim to embrace that. So, if you can’t make a flight or mission - don’t sweat! Do it when you don’t have external engagements instead!

Excellence - achieving excellence is our aim, we want to be even better than your best and as a team we can reach the stars. Abiding by the first 3 core values will bring Excellence naturally, but never forget this can be achieved in a huge number of ways.

It is with great pleasure that IFAF can announce its first partnership. Partnerships come in different and varying styles while remaining inside the normal and expected practices. This one, is one that has taken weeks of negotiating, several discussions and can now finally be released to the IFC. IFAF & AeroSync have begun a new, unique and rewarding partnership by using our AAR and Cargo Fleets as one, fulfilling each other’s responsibilities, sharing ground support equipment and parking bays during airshow season and providing united training across both organisations.

Here is to a long and prosperous friendship.

The future is Aerosync&IFAF

IFAF Weekly Update

Chief of Staff’s Foreword.

This week has been immensely positive for IFAF. Having grown exponentially and rapidly over the last couple of weeks, we have established ourselves with a complete staff team, new specialisation and we continue to see our Officer Recruits graduate from Ab Initio at a steady rate.

During the week we saw the DC10/MD11 release, which has seen us drop the aging and outdated C17 from our fleet until it receives it’s much needed update, and replaced it with 8 MD11F (Generic Livery). We have also added 6 KDC10 (NAF Livery) to our fleet with the option for further purchases.

Our major news of the week, comes with great news that we have managed to finalise negotiations and establish our very first and only partnership. Centralizing on airborne refuelling at the moment, the agreement sees IFAF & AeroSync combining parts of our forces and utilizing them as one.

IFAF take another step towards the Real World!!

Here at IFAF we constantly strive for realism both on and off the IFC. From implementing real life AAR Procedures we have taken a whole new step, which has NEVER before been seen or done within the VA/VO world. The first people to offer this opportunity, something for you to really track progress and have something to keep - even after your time with us!

Can I please introduce to you the very first, virtual uniform.


please click for full image
Here you see the top half of our uniform of our Air Chief Marshal. With several decorations, which you could earn also!!

Along with this, we have opened our Stores & Services which include a supply squadron and also tailors shop! Meaning when you arrive and promote, you pick up your new uniform or when you earn an honour that includes a ribbon? You visit the Tailors!

This has taken a long time to prepare and implement, but I think it’s a great step forward for us and brings a sense of belonging and competition to earn ribbons and promote to make your uniform even better!
