Teaching my Uncle to fly in IF

Disclaimer: My uncle gave me permission to post this
I’m teaching my uncle how to fly together! My Uncle and I have flown a few times in Hawaii and Mansfield in a Cessna on Casual. My uncle and I took a photo at the hangars at Mansfield (1B9). The right plane is me, the left plane is my uncle. I love teaching him to fly!

If you want to see my uncle’s image, I have asked the mods to post his image with his permission.

Reminds me of teaching my cousin how to fly in IF, he loved it for about 2 years, and then a few months after global, he got sick of it 😪

First flight we did (it was just for fun) we raced from Sydney to Canberra in F22’s lol, now that was fun

A bit extreme for his first flight, but ok! I hope he had fun in Infinite Flight, and I hope he enjoyed global because it was a great update.

Well he did become a very good pilot, but yeah, probably a bit extreme for a first flight lol

Good for him!
My uncle’s first flight was at KIAD on Casual. He sometimes taxied through grass but he made it to the runway. He went off the runway during takeoff, but he did well for his first flight, especially since it was windy.

I tried teaching my friend but he thought it was too difficult for him sadly.

Aww. If he comes back I hope he likes IF! If not, that’s OK.
