Infinite Flight motivation

What’s your guys’ motivation to continue playing infinite flight? I used to play every single day but I’ve been losing a bit of interest in the past couple weeks. What strives you to play for so many years?

It’s a way to escape from life, be able to pick up your device and fly around, the world is your limit! It distracts me from life when I need a boost!
See you in the skies :)

@AerLingusVA is my motivation, a bunch of great people with an amazing atmosphere! I also really want to be a pilot for Aer Lingus when I’m older so these lads really support me and keep my dreams alive!

The community is something that has played a big part of my overall experience. By getting involved in various organizations, I have found people who have a similar passion for not only Infinite Flight, but aviation as a whole.

Try to get involved when and where you can. There are some pretty cool organizations out there take a look and see if anything interests you.

Guess I don’t have anything productive to do during this pandemic so yeah that’s why I fly and interact with people in IF.🤷‍♂️

To be honest, it’s my immense drive for ultra-realism #RealismPolice! that keeps me going! Always follow real world procedures!

There is a good topic about this, take a scroll.

Seeing what hair style @MishaCamp goes with keeps me here.

I would actually encourage you to take some time away and not burnout. I did that for 2/3 months back in summer of 2017, and I doubt I would be where I am now without doing that. However much you love something, you need a break sometimes. You can then come back and appreciate it all over again.

I would say the best way to actively stay engaged is to fly to new places, doing new routes, in new aircraft. I, for example, have spent the last 2 or 3 days flying to DC-10F around. Joining new events, doing tours of countries, and perhaps making videos [if you know how] are all other ways that you can continue to be engaged.

Just my two cents after 10,000 flight hours and over 5 years of my life lol

Friends, social relationships and joining VA’s is what makes me keep my motivation with playing Infinite Flight. In fact this is the only flight simulator I can afford, really. I have met fantastic friends in the community forum. I love recreating realistic flights using accurate data from Flightradar24. I didn’t play much of the simulator a month ago due to school exams, but now it’s just great to be more active in the skies and trying out the new update features!

Currently working hard earning my flight hours with VA’s and continuing my strong relationship with other pilots on the Expert Server. It’s just awesome!

Edit: I don’t fly EVERY single day, but always take a break during weekends.

Mainly my passion for aviation… I love planning my flights, checking charts, exploring worldwide procedures and keeping aircrafts’ roars playing in my ears… Why IF? Simply because I cannot afford those fancy simulators with FMCs and real sceneries😔

Saw you in the DC-10 today :)

Honestly, it’s just fun, I challenge myself to never fly repeat routes unless I have to. I’ve flown to so many new places recently like Iraq, Azerbaijan, Kenya, Southern France, Austria, Jordan, and so many more.

Try out new airplanes, change regularly to enjoy all the liveries we’ve the chance to have! Take new challenges, like difficult approachs, no HUD landing, only live cockpit etc…
There’re a lot of different sceneries you can enjoy!
Try new adventures with the Virtual Organisations adventure.
All of that keep me motivated :)

I continue to play in IF because it’s the only and first flight simulator that I played and liked, and also because of the community :)
