Infinite Flight World Tour


The Infinite Flight World Tour is an extensive event that’ll require pilots to circumnavigate the entire globe with the Boeing 757-200. The World Tour offers a variety of routes to choose from, each with different challenging and scenic stops along the way. This event is a great way to test your flying skills and explore new parts of the world! On this route you’ll achieve approximately 85hrs flight time, visiting 28 country’s, covering a total distance of 34,000nm! Not to mention the potential 50,000xp up for grabs…

Summary

So, how will it work? The concept is really simple. The general idea is for you to take your very own 757 on a round trip of world without using any other aircraft. Below is a map featuring all of the airports we will fly to in this event. We will depart eastbound from London Heathrow airport stopping at over 30 countries around the world until we eventually touchdown back at London Heathrow!

The reason why we’ve chosen the 757 for this event is simply because of its versatility. It really does allow us to squeeze into the smaller airports down route whilst also providing us with power and the long range capabilities that we need. As this is the featured aircraft for this event, we kindly ask that you stick to using it!

Every Sunday we will publish the next weeks worth of routes in the routing > This weeks routes section. We will then continue this cycle until the final week where we fly the last few legs back to Heathrow. This world tour really opens up the opportunity to see places you’ve never seen before from 35,000ft. Along the way you can also expect to see some live-streams.

This weeks routes will display the leg number, route, flight plan, date & time of the flights. Understandably, time-zones are very hard to cater for so please be aware that not all flights will align perfectly with your time zone. However, you are of course welcome to follow along on this journey at your own pace! The view all 42 routes section highlights all set routes and they’ll be checked off as we make progress.

This is a BIG event and there’s no doubt that it’ll take a while to complete. We’re predicting that this event will take roughly two months to complete. Although this seems like a snails pace, we have to keep other official events in mind along the way.

Server

This is an ALL SERVERS event. However, we encourage both pilots and ATC to use the BETA Expert Server as the main server. Staff will initially lead the flights on the beta server to help test new optimisations with a large number of pilots. If you wish to follow along on the training & casual server, you are welcome to do so!

In theory you could pick your own livery to take around the world. However, we’d recommend using the IF livery!
