Around 9 years ago, 7 year old me hit the install button on the App Store to download infinite flight. It was the first time I had a real simulator to fly on, and I was ecstatic. Hopping from aircraft to aircraft and airport to airport, the hours I spent cracking away at flying a plane on an IPad was uncountable. The wonderful IFC taught me so much, and it genuinely furthered my existing passion for aviation.
Fast forward to 2022, and here is that same fascinated 7 year old in love with aviation, except now he’s flying real planes, in real life. A few months ago, I flew solo for the first time, and in my 16 years thus far, it might be the greatest moment in my life. Flying solo makes you feel so free among the skies, it’s indescribable. And some years ago, it all started with this app. Who knew that an iPad and a monthly subscription to a game could land you up flying planes and doing the thing you love the most. Next up: PPL.
So cool that you’ve able to get to your dream and living it. In my years it was Flight Simulator, I started playing it and loved it, today I am flying planes for a job, 15 years already. When the passion gets to you, you can’t get rid of it. Enjoy the flights, stay safe and happy landings.
Congratulations! 🎉 That’s such a great achievement, you can be proud of yourself! Thanks for sharing this story and the pictures with us (New Zealand looks stunning! 🏔); I’m happy that the IFC and Infinite Flight have helped you on your journey 🙌
