Total Beginner Looking for Answers

Sorry for the ignorance, but I really can’t find any answers here. In fact, when I start the in game tutorial, it stops after the pilot says he’s going to climb…he never climbs and then we crash.

What’s the point of this game? Is it more for real life pilots who enjoy watching the simulations and paying for aircrafts?

It’s like I wanna get into this game but I don’t know how. If someone could point me in some kind of direction to help me get a grip on this app, I’d appreciate it.

It’s more of a simulator rather than a fun, mess around, time burning game. It’s not all about buying aircraft although that does help in the games development, a lot. We can also fly with each other at a price of £5 a month or £50 for a year including every aircraft and region. You can fly approaches or just take off and fly to a set destination and there are many ranks you can achieve by gaining landings, flight time, and XP. We are closing in on our biggest update yet which allows you to fly all around the world with every airport included. It does take a long time to learn how to fly aircraft, well anyway. But it’s worth the training. If you check out the infinite flight YouTube page, community moderator, Mark Denton has some helpful tips on how to complete a perfect flight. Welcome to the community, hope this helps…

Yes. If you are looking to become an advanced pilot you should check out the Mentorship Program. If you are wondering what you want this simulator to be for you, here are some ideas:
1 - Mess around and fly a plane! (Should be done in Solo or casual)
2 - Realistic Flying - (Reccomended - expert server/solo)
3 - Messing with others (Casual Server)

Feel free to do anything you want as long as you aren’t a troll.

You can also look at this:

That is if you want to be involved and grow in the ccommunity. Be knowledgeable, respectful, and cooperative and you will have the blast of your life!

Piloting: Don’t go over 250 knots below 10,000 feet. Follow what the ATC tells you and you should be fine. Any further questions? Feel free to PM me :)

Happy landings,

Infinite Flight is a mobile flight simulator that has super realilistc physics, planes, regions, and controls. You can use it if you are passionate about aviation, a real world or private pilot, or just someone who enjoys simulators.

You don’t have to pay if you don’t want to, although if you want to expand your fleet, or use multiplayer mode which includes real time weather, live atc, and all planes and regions (depending on what subscription you purchase), you will have to pay.

Tons and tons of tutorials here: https://community.infiniteflight.com/c/tutorials


Good luck, and welcome to the form and simulator;-)

Hey welcome ^_^

Ive been on nearing 2 years and still going with this sim, some have been here way longer so you know it can be pretty worth it.

Some of us started out with no knowledge and now control in expert server, some of us came in as real life pilots or controllers and have shared valuable information on tutorials as mentioned by everyone.

If you really want to learn something, as any humble person, you can go a long way here. Once you get used to the offline solo mode, i would suggest not buying any planes during these process, the free planes are very helpful for a ‘trial’ of the many other planes.

Instead invest about $6 for 1 month of live, use that time to experience casual and possibly training server. You may find southern california to be irritable at the beginning if you are really serious or more of a perfectionist so i suggest other free regions.

If you enjoyed the 1 month, you can consider saving for a $60 1 year subscription with all planes and regions loan to you during this 1 year. Try to hit expert server and experience the ATC services and pilots who know what they are doing, of course, only do this when you are ready or risk getting kicked and reduced grade.

I know this is more than you asked but it will be worth knowing alittle more xD considering you did mention IAPs too.
