Hello Everyone! I have been waiting to get Infinite Flight for some time, I just wanted to have time to dedicate myself to learning all I can. Now that I have a solid device and am currently seeking a caterer change at 35, now’s the time!
But I just wanted to give a quick bio on how I developed a passion for flight Sims. I’ve flew commercial many times, all the way to CDG in Paris and have flew LAX to Atlanta.I live in Kentucky so we have Bluegrass in Lexington and Cincy/Northern Ky. and Louisville.
Being in southeastern KY, I prefer Knoxville and then Lexington as a second.
My grandfather’s brother (Father’s side) was a pilot who lived in OKC. He donated a lot of his time to Oklahoma St. athletics, mainly flying the basketball team to away game. I remember we would go pick him up on occasional holidays at the regional airport in London, KY. He took me on my first flight, me and my twin, at five or six in a helicopter. I always admired how cool it must be to fly.
Unfortunately, in January 2001, they were leaving from a game at Colorado. With horrible weather conditions, the FAA concluded he had spatial disoreintation shortly after take-off.
His name was Denver Ray Mills (I called him Uncle DR) and the co-pilot was a Swiss fellow. Also on board, two players, an equipment manager, the radio broadcaster, sports information director, and three others in the athletic department.
If any of you are football fans and watch ESPN, you may have seen Bill Hancock before on there. His son unfortunately was on board. The coach at the time, Eddie Sutton switched off the doomed plane and got on the plane with the team, and my uncle ,(great-uncle, but he insisted uncle DR) was supposed to have his son, who fortunately didn’t attend the trip at the last minute.
So, after getting a paper copy of the crash report from the FAA, my interest peaked. Now with simulators coming so far, I knew this was the way to go. Ive had the basic simulators on mobile some of you have played so I have a general understanding.
I’m so excited to have something so I depth. I will spend the first few days studying and taking notes, watching videos, then Solo practice.
No need to go live until I can actually exist with those of you who enjoy realism in simulators, myself included.
I’m sorry my first post was so long but I tried to be concise. I want to be an active member of this community. I know I have plenty of tools in this forum, I don’t forsee having to ask many questions early with all the tutorials and just searching the forum.
To the developers, thank you for making an outstanding product! I can’t imagine the time and resources so many people devoted to and still devote to improving this product.
Who knows, maybe I will make that career change and get a private pilots license after this! Hope to see you all in the skies!
