I recently passed my PPL check ride and looking back I don’t think I could have done it with out Infinite Flight. In this article I give examples of how this app helped me with real world training, enjoy!
Infinite Flights ATC program had one of the biggest impacts on my ATC communications as a student pilot. I highly recommend joining IFATC and learning the basics of ATC communications. I have to say this was a game changer coming in with this knowledge.
Flying the 172
As we all know the reworked 172 has made IF much more GA friendly for students to learn the basics of steam gauges. Flying the 172 and getting familiar with all the basic instruments really gave me much more confidence in the beginning of my training. One other important thing I would do was practice stalls and other maneuvers that required many steps.
I have to be honest tracking VORs was one of the more confusing things at the beginning of my training. After a lesson going right onto my phone or iPad to practice VOR navigation really helped me progress in a more timely manner.
This might seem like a simple thing but when it’s on your written exam don’t come crying to me. All joking aside taxing around with real world taxi ways and hold short lines definitely helped me get a better understanding of how airports are marked up.
Connecting to Fore Flight
These days technology plays a much bigger roll in aviation. Getting familiar with how it works is imperative, the seamless connection to ForeFlight helped me get familiar with the set up of technology in the real world cockpit.
At the end of the day this simulator has helped me gain so much knowledge that I will bring with me through out my real world flying. I think the fact that this is a mobile simulator plays a huge roll in the convince of using this great app. Very excited for what the future holds for this app!!
Now let me know how Infinite Flight has had an impact on your training?
