📆 Events

Plane & Pilot creates some of the highest quality events Infinite Flight has ever seen. We spend up to 2 weeks planning for each event to make sure that it is fully unique and enjoyable. A list of all of our previous and upcoming events can be found here. Here are some of the types of events we are most well known for:

Convoy Events
Convoy events are some of our most popular. We take a large group of people and split them into groups depending on what aircraft or airline they are flying. People enjoy these because they are not super crowded and make great screen shots.

Example:
https://community.infinite-flight.com/t/closed-plane-pilot-alliances-in-australia-yscb-011700zjul17/126741

Airport Hops
In airport hops, we do a route from one popular airport to another and do touch and goes at several airports in between. These are lots of fun and a great way to get XP.

Example:
https://community.infinite-flight.com/t/closed-plane-pilots-hawaii-island-hop-phnl-181800znov17/163494

Competitions
Our competitions are about as competitive as they get. They are fairly judged and have good prizes for the winners.

Example:
https://community.infinite-flight.com/t/closed-plane-pilot-aerosync-aerobatics-competition-kmuo-271800zjan18/180820

Real World Flights
If you like being ultra realistic in your flying, then make sure to join our real world flights. We do these as close to the real flight as possible, from the flight plan right down to the departure time.

Example:
https://community.infinite-flight.com/t/closed-plane-pilot-ua-5914-simulation-kord-151711zjul17/129659

Just discovered this thread now:

Will all Plane & Pilot events take place on the training server? Or will some happen on the expert server?

It depends one what the event requester would like. We’ve done events on the Training Server and Expert Server. We can also do Casual Server events.

Yea, what Jake said. We did do quite a few events on the Expert server before our ATCEG partnership. Now, witht every Training Server Event, we have guaranteed quality ATC. We still do Expert events. If we do events that are less realistic and are more of a competition-type, then we do Casual.
A lot of our events are commissions by people and VAs, and we go off of what the requester requests. We may modify it if we think we have to.

Edit: Closed

We are very excited to announce that in order to improve our group, @jakevaz423 has created our very own community forum, using the same platform that Infinite Flight uses for this form!

We will also be hosting a category that allows people to talk about almost anything you want!

A few things you need to know:

  • Only IFC members can join, so use your IFC username so we know it’s you.

  • We need to manually approve your account, you will receive an email when we do.

  • All IFC regulars will be automatically promoted to regular on our forum.

Make sure to join our forum! It’s completely free!

New Slack Channel!

We are very sorry to announce Plane & Pilot will be closing its community forum on June 30th, 2018. This is due to the increasing lack of activity that we’ve had in the past month. To give you an idea, only 15 different users have visited the site in the past month and only 7 have made posts. Unfortunately, it is no longer worth the time and money to run the forum.

To replace our forum, we have created a new Slack Channel. Anyone can join this and enjoy discussions and group flights with other members, plus be notified about our new events and announcements. If you want to be a P&P member, make sure to

I tried to keep the discussion alive by putting down random fun facts and casual jokes.

Didn’t go too well. 🙁

Sad to see it go. 👋

Closing for the Summer

Summer in the northern hemisphere has arrived and Plane & Pilot will be taking a break from our regularly scheduled events until early September. If you are a long time IFC or P&P member, you my remember Plane & Pilot doing the same thing last year due to busy staff and low event participation. We will be doing a similar thing this year. This is because people are enjoying outdoor activities and don’t have as much time to play Infinite Flight. Although we will not be creating events, we will continue to be active on our social medias and Slack channel, so make sure to join us there!

See you in September,
The Plane & Pilot Team d4e5a73031aca243ed31e1f8a4b518c2ec4025bb_1_500x500

Welcome Our New ATC Manager, @Cbro4!

Sadly, Plane & Pilot has had to end our partnership with the ATCEG due to them no longer doing public events. So that we can continue to have high quality air traffic control for our TS1 events, we will be opening our own small ATC team. We are very excited to welcome our newest staff member, @Cbro4, who will be managing this new team and helping us plan events. Stay tunned for more information on Plane & Pilot ATC!
