Infinite Flight's Big New Year FNF - Voting Closed!

It’s neither and now just go to PMs

Why is Switzerland so popular? It’s definitely one of my favourite places in Europe to fly to, but I mean we literally just had one in Switzerland.

It’s just how the community works… No thought is ever put into such decisions…

But some people do put in thought, and make the best FNF’s.

I think everyone could have predicted that the UK was going to win. Its just so predictable…

Ok so almost certainly it will be Heathrow.
If so would be nice to have real world operations there.
As there are 3 main errors made by ATC on expert server at Heathrow:

  1. using both runways for departures and landings simultaneously - should be one runway for each.
  2. straight out departures - if we must have both runways in use for departures, please stagger them so as not to impose this, in all cases RW departing traffic at Heathrow makes a turn off runway heading once past the end of the runway.
  3. Using 09L for departures - never used in RW.

IFATC controllers tend to ignore Real World Ops. This is for simplicity, and ease for the controllers. We don’t mind if you use Real World Ops of course, just so long as you’re not being silly (like flying into others because of your real world chart).

Also, all runways are required to be in use (unless, of course, it’s not practical), so that there is a lesser chance of getting a traffic jam.

Who said Heathrow would be open anyway? I’d hope that we won’t use Heathrow, and instead, use Manchester or Amsderdam, and connect to the regional cities (maybe the theme could be FlyBe)?


Please see this post

It’s not that they don’t care. FNF airports get 2 or 3 times the amount of traffic that IRL. If they use the procedures for traffic IRL, it could be a disaster and increase the workload a lot more unnecessarily

Is the vote closed?

Nope, it’s still open

Some day we should coordinate and implement maximum realism at an FNF airport. See how long it takes before people complain of the delays!


Eh I’d deal with a 3 hour LGA groundstop and a wheels up time being pushed back by an hour every half an hour, if it meant we could have realistic ™ procedures…but then again I’m sure a majority of “pilots” on the ES would throw a fit after being in a hold for 20 min

It could be but not necessarily. It seems easier to have one runway assigned to each. There would be more traffic in the hold but it would ease ground workload as traffic isnt being backed up as much waiting to depart.

The final poll is now open! You have a choice of 10 out of 20!


Oh well, pretty disapointed that the UK won but I guess that is the most popular region in Europe, I hope either EDinburgh or London City wins so we at least don’t have LHR as main airport like almost always.

Sad to see EGMD Lydd not in there 😥😜. Maybe another time, but you’ve really got a selection here! Thanks Misha!

votes for everything but EGLL

A little bit of variation! 😆


Omg. This is like memory lane. Imagine MAN, BHX and lcy being open. We could do so many domestic flights. LCY would be fun approach.

Oh boy can’t wait to hop in the tower and get spammed with pushback, taxi, and issuing frequency changes.

Why no Isle of Man ? :(
