@jono3313. MaxSez. Welcome Aboard. Flying on IF; Start with small aircraft, the Cessna-172 is best, when you can control it then go bigger craft incrementally. Read the Tutorials, Basics first. To fully appreciate the real and sim aviation world get a free copy of the FAA “Pilots Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge”. Down load the pub in PDF Form off the Web at it takes patience, perserverence, study and practice to succeed here. Go for it, you’ll soon be soreing with the IF Eagles and eaglets.
Good Luck & Semper Fi Shipmate…


This is an Amazing Game! The CRJ update actually game out a few hours ago! Hope you Enjoy your Stay!

Infinite flight tutorials are a great place to start understanding aviation! I’d start by doing patterns in small aircraft then go bigger. Then do as MaxSez for basics. If you want to go super advanced FAA knowledge try the FAA AIM (Aeronautical Information Manual), current 29MAR18. Any questions ask around.

Welcome on behalf of the staff here at Infinite Flight. Let us know if we can do anything to help you! 🙂


You found this place, logged in, and made this post on the IF Community (IFC). This alone, makes me happy, as it shows you’re serious and you want to do this well. Well done!

IF is so much more then a Sim: it’s a little world on its own. The great features of IF, apart from its spectacular scenerey and great aircrafts, is Live flight, where you are participating with other aircrafts and air traffic controllers, in a virtual aviation world. Secondly, this Forum, where staff, moderators, air traffic controllers (ATCs) and pilots meet, have fun and help eachother, is a key part of the IF world.

Spend much time here. Check the #tutorials pages, ask questions, like and reply to posts. There’s a enourmous amount of experience and knowledge here.

I’m sure you will fit right in.
