Infinite Flight | Checklists |

Don’t waste time and look below these are my personally written checklists for Infinite flight and they may become useful to others!

Thx guys for reading this, hope it will make your flight more realistic if there’s anything you find needs touching up please say, it’s just quick checklists, nothing to fancy.


What is HDG

HDG is your heading.

Okey can you make a List for using Autopilot an best

You should be specific about the stage to perform these functions, e.g. at what pointto switch landing lights off after take over, and when to switch them on again when landing, etc.

Edit: thanks for the list.

Great Checklist!

Only thing I would suggest is to include a 'Top of Decent" checklist,

  1. Check Weight and Balance to meet MLW
  2. Check Wind conditions at Arrival Airport in case of change of active runways and any traffic patterns

OMG that would be so realistic if that could be added

simples, copy and paste above onto a word document and print out as a copy!!

You could just download the official infinite flight checklist based on The real thing! →


Nav lights come on after pushback

Harry made one. Search Him on the community and PM him

@Michael_Black created an app for checklists! You guys should check it out!

What is it called?

Where I fly the nav light goes on:

  • At night
  • Visibility less then 5000 meters during daylight . This is from the moment you arrive onboard the airplane.

Ok I’m just saying from experience I haven’t seen the nav lights on when boarding & also on Harry’s checklist it says that they should be off but you are the pilot here.

Might be different airline policy, It shows in our “preliminary cockpit preparation” :)

My experience (as a passenger) is the same as @Aernout has described, nav lights are pretty much always on unless the aircraft is completely cold and dark. Anti-collision lights (beacon) usually go on once the aircraft is under its own power - i.e. when starting the APU.

Beacon goes when cleared to start engines and/or pushback until engines are shutdown at the gate and all doors disarmed.


Max Sez; Another great great Topic that augments the “Official IF Check List”.
The individual answers from the ATP’s fleshed it all out, I Bookmarked it!
