Welcome to the Official Thread of IPP!
Hello, I’m Jonathan Limento Founder and CEO at IPP. It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the International Professional Pilots. Here in IPP, we always try to set our standard to the highest possible. The professionalism of our pilots, who go through their dedication and activity, continuously make our virtual organization goes forward. We are not just a virtual organization, we are a family! We strive to maintain a professional environment at all time, but most importantly, we aim to provide our pilots with the best and fun experience possible! On behalf of the entire staff in IPP, we look forward to seeing you in the team!
You’re probably wondering what our group is all about, so let us explain,
Founded in December 2017 and with members from all around the globe, we pride ourselves on being welcoming and friendly to anyone who wishes to join the family. And we mean family - our members are all supportive of each other and are always happy to help out where they can! We encourage a somewhat professional attitude most of the time. There’s always room for a bit of a laugh, so no need to worry about us being a super serious group! We have our own Flight school to prepare our new members for our huge events. Speaking of them, our events are held every weekend at various locations around the world. You often see a huge amount of attendees on our events, furthermore we also partner up with other VAs or VOs to create the best experience you can possibly have!
There are plenty of Virtual Organization to choose from. Finding one could be difficult. So here’s a couple reason why should you join us.
IPP was founded with the intention of bringing pilots and air traffic controllers together in a fun environment - this is still visible today and is a big part of who we are. Arguably the best part of being a member of IPP is just that: being a member of IPP. As mentioned above, we really are just one big happy virtual family, only one made up aviation nuts!
We have over 100 active members from around the world. Our members include real world commercial and private pilots, plane spotters, IFATC, IFAET, pilots under training and everything in-between. So should you need advice on something aviation related, help is never far away!
@TaipeiGuru, IFATC Trainer
IPP is, without a doubt, one of my favorite VOs in Infinite Flight. Here, pilots from across the world come together to participate in weekly events, form long group flights and create bonds of friendship between each other. The staff are friendly and eager to help, and the various backgrounds within aviation allow for many learning opportunities for both pilots and controllers alike. IPP is truly a great place to be, and I highly encourage those who are interested to fill out an application today.
@Gliding_Central, IFATC Trainer
Joining IPP was a decision of mine that has given me great opportunity to grow into an established community. There for you every step of the way and supported me through some of the challenges of IFATC training. Looking back as a Trainer for the IFATC, IPP has wanted me to give back to the community more than ever before. Showing you the community that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. It’s the reason what IPP is one of the best Va’s out there and even though I cannot join most of their fabulous event’s most of the time you couldn’t ask for a more relaxed home like VA out there.
@Drummer, IFATC Officer
I’ve fallen in love with IPP since the second I joined this organization. The events were always fun and packed with fellow pilots. I couldn’t get enough and signed up for every single event. The pilots are very kind and we became a family. Now as a staff member, the VO still feels as fresh as the day I joined. I highly recommend everyone to join this organization. You won’t regret it.
@Thunderbolt, IFATC Specialist
When I joined IPP, I was unsure about what it was and how it worked. However, from the minute I joined, I felt welcome and knew immediately that it was a professional environment. With frequent, high-quality events, and a great group of staff, IPP is truly a great place to be.

We hosts lots of internal, partnered, and IFC events. Our Weekly Events consist of two events each week, one short haul event and one long haul event. We host monthly IFC and partnered events to ensure our pilots to connect and fly with pilots from all over the Infinite Flight Community! At IPP, our pilots have numerous opportunities to fly with others through our events!
We post all of the Event Photos in Our Instagram!

Step one, written test. The Trainer will give you the written test via DM. You will have to reach at least 80% on the score to be able to pass the test. If you failed, you may re-take the test in 3 days.
Step two, practical test. You will fly with our Trainer in a controlled airport. They will look out carefully to your ATC usage, pushback, taxi, takeoff, landing, lights usage.
