[Remade] List of Resources for Infinite Flight

From flight simulation tools to real-world approach charts, there are tons of useful sources on the web for Infinite Flight pilots and controllers. Unfortunately, it’s hard to keep track of these and many people are unaware of them. This is a community built list of free and reliable resources for the sim, including flight plan creators, route finders, airport information databases, and much more! Each source is categorized first by primary use (for IF) and then by alphabetical order with a short description, other uses, and additional links listed for each. To use, simply click on a category below, find the source, and click on the link embedded in its header. If you would like to add something, be sure to post below so that a regular can add it. Enjoy!

This version is a repost from one I made early last year. People seemed to have forgotten about it which lead to it eventually being closed. I’ve remade it because I’ve seen an increasing number of cases lately where tools like these, which many are unaware of, could come in handy.

As stated above, feel free to add things that follow the guidelines. If you are below TL3, post it below and I will add it for you. Also, when you see cases around the community where you think it might be useful, please consider sharing this topic. That way we can build a more knowledgeable and realistic pilot base.

Thanks everyone!

I think we should have this globally pinned to #thirdparty if possible. It would be great to have easy access to this.

Very useful, especially for the newer players: but also for some “older” ones!

Brilliant post, man. I congratulate you.

Would you find it appropriate to make a list of useful apps for IF, then?
The thread could be divided into two big categories, and then 2 smaller categories inside of them: the big ones would be iOS and Android, and the small ones free and paid.

A possible project we could embark on, my friend…

I will work on including free apps in the current list. I’m probably not going to include paid stuff though, as I want everything listed to be super easy to access and convenient to use.
