Infinite Flight meets Real Life


#1

So, today to test the accuracy of infinite flight to the real word, I decided to mirror my buddy cliffs fedex flight. This was his first flight as captain so I thought it would be cool to recreate it.
Flight Details…
FedEx 1932
Boeing 757–200
Route: DTW–EWR
Flight Time: 1 hour and 5 minutes
Route: PAVYL 1 ESSEBE SLT FQM3
Altitude: FL.310
My Flight:
Same Route and Altitude
Difference: Weight, Speed and Time
My cargo was 30,000IBS
Time in flight was 1 hour 5 minutes
Cruise Speed was M.75

Below are screenshots of both flights

Hi!


Looks like an interesting flight, however I would reccomend posting about this flight in the Global Flight - The Log Book. If we had threads where people announce their flights everyday, the #live section would be very cluttered. For more info regarding the #live category you can refer to the post About the Live Category.

Hi there while I appreciate the comment, this isn’t about my routes I flown! This thread is about how accurate IF global is to the real world! Thanks for the suggestion.


#4

So what are the differences? It looks like both flights were 1 hour and 5 minutes. Did fly the same speed as the real world flight? Did you use the same STAR? It looks like it’s the same to me…

I would still recommend posting this in the Global flight logbook, as this is an unnecessary topic. (link can be found in my previous post)


#6

I did! That was my whole point. I wanted to see if they would match up.


#7

Mirrored a real flight in real time...IF was incredibly accurate!.

This is what I was getting out of this post


#8

Gotcha! You said the differences were weight, speed, and time in the OP. It might make it clear to have a little section devoted to findings, in case people don’t read down this far.

Super cool experiment, it’s amazing to see just how accurate this sim is!


#9

Ok my bad, carry on then!


#10

Gotcha! Will keep in mind for the next thread thanks for the feedback.
The only available information I had was from flight aware, do I did my best to guess on what the weight and Mach number would be

That’s very cool. I have been able mirror IRL Commercial flights a few times so far.

SAS / SK940 - KLAX to ESSA
Lufthansa / LH740 - EDDF to RJBB
Asiana / OZ201 - KLAX to RKSI


It’s a great amount of realism and fun experience that is put in when mirroring a ILR flight whether that be a Commercial one with pax or cargo, or in your case your friends flight :)


#12

I totally agree! It’s super neat and amazing accurate


#13

Good to hear that IF is matching up with realistic physics and flight dynamics. One of he reasons I love IF.

Congratulations to your friend Cliff on getting his command with FedEx as well, bet he has some interesting stories to tell!

Clear skies

Ahem… 🚨🚨 Mini Modding alert 🚨🚨

@N1DG looks very interesting. I’ve tried to replicate some flights before but never to this level of accuracy… Congratulations I suppose!
