The Infinite Flight Mentorship Program was designed and implemented with the aspiring pilot in mind, under the supervision and guidance of a mentor the mentee will be given a definitive set of materials to develop and graduate to then become a mentor continuing the germination of better educated and experienced pilots. The Infinite Flight Mentorship Program was founded by @Levet, who is now an Infinite Flight Community Moderator, in Summer 2017 and our goal is to have our highly skilled mentors user their pilot knowledge to instruct student pilots. IFMP is a great organization to join if your having trouble operating your aircraft, trouble with using ATC, or simply just flight planning! We now also have a brand new Pilot Handbook that covers almost everything that has to do with flying in Infinite Flight.
Our mission is to inspire and develop pilots sharing experiences and knowledge with a system of superiors and subordinates who employ a realistic flying atmosphere within the Infinite Flight Simulator. IFMP will serve as a “roadmap” for pilots to gain pilot knowledge and to see where they can improve their pilot skills.
Student Pilot Programs
We are proud to announce that we now have a brand new way of teaching for our Basic Program! Now lets go over what programs we offer. Check them out below!
Basic Student Pilot Program
BASIC PILOT TRAINING PROGRAM
Our Basic Pilot Training Program is our most popular program and is the program that all IFMP Students start out at. We have recently revamped our Basic Program with the help from @Brandon_Sandstrom, our very own Lead Mentor. We now have a brand new Class Syllabus with 5 classes for this program so lets go over it briefly.
In this class, mentors will go through everything that a pilot can possibly learn on the ground. That includes flight rules, weather, instrumentation, airport markings, ground procedures, traffic patterns, communication, and flight planning. You will then take a written test at the end of Class 1 once you feel ready to take it.
The student pilot(s) and the Mentor will go out to an airfield and the pilot(s) will demonstrate Ground Procedures as well as flying a pattern. The student pilot(s) will then get a pre and post brief on how to fly a pattern. Also, Mentors will assess the student pilot(s) Unicom usage.
The Mentor and the student pilot(s) will start a cross country flight the student pilot will plan the whole flight by themselves using knowledge from previous classes. The Mentor will then let the student pilot plan the flight and then the Mentor will check and verify the flight.
Air traffic control is introduced and Live ATC is used while operating aircraft. The Mentor will stay on ground at the airfield and watch and listen to the students flying the patterns. The student pilot(s) will be briefed once again by the Mentors before starting. There will also be a post brief to go over any questions or what could have been done better.
The student pilot(s) will start a cross country flight by using all previous class information. At least one touch and go will need to be made within the flight. Live ATC will be used within the flight and the student pilot(s) will complete everything by themselves without assistance from the Mentor. The Mentors will always be open to questions. (Student will need to study the whole Handbook)
A Cessna 172, Cessna 208, or Cirrus (as shown below) will be used in this Basic Training Program.
Aircraft Type Training
We also offer another program which is teaching students how to fly certain types of aircraft. This program will only be available for Students who take our Basic Program Course first. For example, we can teach how to use certain systems of certain aircraft, how to land aircraft, how to use APPR, and much more! Go take the Basic Program Course to start your Aircraft Training today!
Advanced Flight Planning and Chart Reading
ADVANCED FLIGHT PLANNING AND CHART READING COURSE
Our Advanced Flight Planning and Chart Reading Course is also a course that is available after you have taken our Basic Program Course. Flight Planning is crucial for flying long distances and plays a big role in your flight. The Class 1 in our Basic Program Course teaches how to Plan a Flight briefly but in this program, you will be one-on-one with an experienced Mentor. Also, how to read charts is in this program which also play a huge role in your flight on Approaches, Departures, and at an Airport. Start our Basic Program today to work your way to this program!
