YouTube: Plane & Pilot Events
With over 80 events under our belt, Plane & Pilot has created more than any other Virtual Organization in Infinite Flight. We offer a wide variety of unique events ranging from airshows and landing competitions to ultra-realistic flights and pattern work meets, and host up to 3 every week. In a community that primarily does fill the airport events, our goal is to provide unique and creative ones that try new things and bring the excitement back to participating in events.
Plane & Pilot’s primary events are some of the most creative and high quality events Infinite Flight has ever seen. We have created numerous events including competitions, test flights, realistic flights, and more, often partnering with VAs or other IFC members to bring their ideas to life. We hold these almost every weekend, so make sure to keep an eye out for them in #live:events!
Plane & Pilot Patterns
Based off of the original “Saturday Night Patterns” series by @Cbro4, Plane & Pilot patterns is dedicated to pilots from around the world getting together and doing touch and goes at different places. Everyone weekend, our ATC team opens an airport on the training server to provide quality service for pattern work for one hour and bring the community together while helping people get the landings they need. Make sure to check #live:events every week for these unique events!
Still haven’t had enough of our events? Make sure join our flying club where we host official internal group flights at different places around the world almost every week! Just keep an eye out for them in announcements section of our Slack!

Plane & Pilot offers a simple planning service that requires minimal hassle from the client but provides great results. All you have to do this fill out this form and we will contact you within 48 hours to begin planning your event:
A P&P sponsorship is an option available for people and VAs who want to make their own events, but still want our help. People who apply for sponsorships will get their event announced on our Slack, get P&P ATC at the starting and ending airport (only on TS1 events), and get to put our logo in the event description. Keep an eye out for sponsored events in #announcements on our Slack. If you want your event sponsored, please contact @PlaneCrazy or @Peter_S before you post your event, give us a summary of it, and tell us what airport, sever, date, and time it will be at.

Events are an excellent way to practice handling high traffic levels and controlling under pressure. As a P&PATC member, you will have the opportunity to control at up to 2 events a week and receive feedback from IFATC members on your preformance.
Plane & Pilot offers ATC offers performance evaluation sessions to members who are looking to improve their ATC skills and achieve higher ranks in our team. It is supper easy to schedule one, and once you do members IFATC team will come out to an airport of your choice and give you feedback and tips.

Bi-Weeky Practice Questions
We also offer ground/tower ATC quizzes, posted every other week, that contain a variety of different scenarios for controllers to work through and keep their skills sharp.
