Infinite Flight Community Awards 2019 | The Results!

Welcome to IFCA 2019

Hello IFC, and welcome to the 2019 Infinite Flight Community Awards, hosted by @Infinite_Flight_Sims. The community has grown tremendously over the past year and will continue to do so over the years to come. I am honored to be hosting IFCA 2019, as it may be the years biggest event. Let’s all take a moment to reflect on 2019, by far the best year for Infinite Flight so far.


What is The IFCA 2019?

The Infinite Flight Community Awards, or IFCA is a yearly “tradition” on the IFC since 2016. The IFCA is an award made by community members to nominate and congratulate other users who have contributed greatly over the past year.


The End of a Decade, The End of an Era

January 1st, 2020 marks the end of an era in Infinite Flight, and aviation in general. Back in 2011 when the first version on Infinite Flight came out, it was already loved by meany people. In 2015 when the IFC was created, it gained popularity quite quickly. Infinite Flight grew heavily in the past year decade, and is on a path to keep growing in the new year.


The Results

With over 220 total voters this year, it’s safe to say that it was a good year for IFCA. I’d like to thank everyone who voted one more time, it wouldn’t have been possible with out all of you. Now let’s get to the most ambitious part of IFCA 2019: The Results.

Being on the forums and being in real life are 2 very different things.

Acting like a moderator gives you responsibilities, and a lot of the time, being formal and helping people, along with dealing what must be done.

On the other hand, being informal to someone you’re comfortable with, is a very different change, and have seen on a few streams Chris being a great funny person. Most people on the forums knows what the staff are like when being formal. Not many know them playing around… well except Misha…

What!?

I was joking when I said I was going for this! Thank you all for supporting me, and cheers to 2020! I didn’t know I made such an impact in the Infinite Flight Community. I’ve had ups and downs, made mistakes and had lots of fun! I learned lots and enjoy the company that you all have given me as we take on this journey. Thank you all <3


Thanks for hosting this @Infinite_Flight_Sims, and thank you to everyone that chose to vote for me :)

Congrats to those who won! There are quite a few I agree with and a few I don’t, but we follow the populist wave with the masses I guess!

I do think there should have been a category about users who consistently spread positivity around the forum. People like @MrMrMan, @Captain_JR, or our very own Marc. These are the people that make others feel welcome here, and I’m hoping in the future we feature polls for these categories.

One good thing to see is DLVA winning the best VA topic, and I’m shocked they didn’t win more. Then again, we weren’t tagged and told to vote for anything. Pilots at DLVA are consistently more professional than any other VA in the skies, including some mentioned in this thread.

I can’t wait to see the expansion of these awards next year!

It’s truly an honour to be elected as the forum’s best artist. All the hard work and effort that it put into all of the drawings pays off, and I’m Glad that so many of you appreciate my work as an artist.

I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart that voted for me, I really do appreciate it! 😁🙌

I definitively have to agree with a lot here! Though there are some mixed feelings for some of them personally. It’s exciting to see what new awards, treats, and kindness we are able to spread on the forum this year!

Congratulations to all! Happy new year 🥳

Great to see DLVA mentioned as top website this year, since last years winner didn’t actually have a site 😂

Love what the staff has done with a 100% customized website for the VA that is second to none, and not just a cookie cutter page

I’m tremendously happy to see one of my home airports, and an airport that I edited, get the reward for best in-game airport! Thanks so much everyone!

KMSO rocks! (@Jack_Q)


I am also honored to be on the list for best event creator! Thanks to everyone on the Plane & Pilot team for helping me create these amazing events! Congrats to @George_Flack and @Dylan_M aswell!

Oh… MY GOD!!!
KMSO That’s my home airport! Hardly anyone at all cares about Montana except for me, @PlaneCrazy and a few other individuals who have actually ventured out a bit and tried a new state. This is so incredibly true. And another high-five to @PlaneCrazy because he alone made that airport in IF along with most of the other airports in Montana. Everyone y’all should just try spawning in, you will be pleasantly surprised.
