V1, Rotate AMA with Chris_Wing


AMA with Chris_Wing


Welcome to V1, Rotate’s sixth Ask Me Anything (AMA), a series where we invite members of the community that have made significant contributions in the community and in Infinite Flight. Last time, we had the opportunity to ask Gliding_Central questions.

On this edition of V1, Rotate’s AMA series, our guest is @Chris_Wing. He is an British/Swiss IFATC Supervisor and Trainer, President of British Airways Virtual Airline, student pilot, and a longtime forum contributor and Infinite Flight meet up attendee. He resides in Switzerland with his brother, fellow Infinite Flight contributor and IFATC Controller Nick_Wing.

Starting today and ending on Saturday (March 13th), you’ll be able to ask Chris any questions you may have, whether it be about Infinite Flight or his personal life. However, inappropriate and duplicate questions will be removed, and any questions that our guest does not wish to respond will not be responded to.

How To Ask A Question
