Tales of the Cockpit by AFKLM Virtual | Ep. 1: Missed Approach Above Quito

IFC Friends,

Omar here, President of AIRFRANCE-KLM Virtual on Infinite Flight. Warm greetings to you all! I wanted to drop a post here to formally introduce Tales of the Cockpit by AFKLM, a new YouTube video series that was inspired by and designed with you – our fellow aviation enthusiasts – in mind!

What is Tales of the Cockpit?
Strap into the virtual jump seat with AFKLM and experience the realism, pilot learning and friendly community spirit that makes AIRFRANCE-KLM Virtual a unique VA experience. Tales of the Cockpit will showcase the life and times of the Airmen of AFKLM Virtual on Infinite Flight and have some fun along the way. Tales of the Cockpit will feature professionally edited videos, including full-length flights and clips, each narrated by a variety of pilots from within our VA and the IFVARB community. You’ll learn how to fly like an Airman, improve your flying skills, be entertained, and generally speaking — elevate your love of aviation.

With that said, I invite you to check out our first edition of Tales of the Cockpit below featuring an action-packed approach above the stunning mountains of Quito, Ecuador.

Good, lol. That was by design. We’re all about matching as many of the aspects of the real world AFKLM group as part of the VA experience. Along with focusing on realism, learning and creating a pilot community for members. Hope you guys enjoy!

Service on board was tolerable.
I’ll however expect a lie-flat bed in the cockpit next time.
Please and thank you.
