As some of you might remember from my last post, I have a unique mode of flying in Infinite Flight. I always take off from where I last landed. I also try always to fly realistic routes that exist in real life. That means that if I want to get to a certain point on this planet, I have to figure out how to get there.
At the moment, I’m on an 8-flight trip from Aberdeen (Scotland) to King George Island (Antarctica). The reason behind that exotic destination is that I want to discover some of the new scenery in South America.
- Aberdeen (Scotland) - Amsterdam (Netherlands) ✅
- Amsterdam - Frankfurt (Germany) ✅
- Frankfurt - Layes (Portugal, Fuel Stop) - Bogota (Colombia) ✅
- Bogota - Cusco (Peru) ✅
- Cusco - Lima (Peru)
- Lima - Cordoba (Argentina)
- Cordoba - Ushuaia (Argentina)
- Ushuaia - King George Island (Antarctica)
The pictures I share with you today are from flight number 4; Bogota (Colombia) to Cusco (Peru).
See, I could’ve flown directly from Bogota to Lima, but I wanted to make the infamous approach in Cusco. And oh boy, it was worth it.

The scenery around Cusco is one of the most beautiful areas I’ve ever flown at in Infinite Flight. Flabbergasting and majestic mountains, lakes, a magnificent view over the city, …
Not only that, the approach into Cusco is enjoyable as well. I decided to go realistic because it is such a challenging airport and I followed the DARKI1A STAR. This approach brings you in from the west at a right downwind. You have to fly on the downwind until you get behind a mountain, then turn base around that mountain and get back on short final. Very challenging as you have to keep a good eye on your altitude, but when you get down, it’s amazing.
To summarize: Not only do you get so see one of the most beautiful places on this planet, but you also get fo fly a very challenging but fun approach. I do recommend this flight to everyone.
Have a good weekend and many happy landings!
