V1, Rotate AMA with Drummer


AMA With Drummer

Welcome to V1, Rotate’s third Ask Me Another (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 @lucaviness questions, and it was, for the most part, a great turnout again. On this edition of V1, Rotate’s AMA series, our guest is Bruce, better known as @Drummer here on the forum. He is an Infinite Flight Grade 5 pilot, IFATC Supervisor and Trainer, and an active helper here on the community. He lives in Baltimore, Maryland, currently a student at the University of Maryland. Starting today and ending on Sunday (December 13th), you’ll be able to ask Bruce 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

You don’t have to be a site member to ask a question! To ask a question, you can just leave it as a reply to this thread (on the IFC). Alternatively, you could make an account and comment on the blog article - whatever you prefer. However, the question submitting period will end at 2359Z on Sunday, the 13th of December.

Thank you for the wonderful opportunity! This will be fun 😊


How long did it take you to achieve all the roles in IFATC?

Whoops was told to answer everything at the end lol


Hey Drummer!

I know you are an awesome percussionist. As a percussionist myself I was wondering: Do you like playing mallet percussion instruments? For me personally, I found it really fun to learn the Stevens Grip to play with four mallets, but I know a lot of my fellow percussionists really do not like mallet percussion.

Once again a band question…Do you prefer Concert or Marching? I enjoy both and play Tenors for marching band and I am active in a youth symphony as well as my high school band, but I know people that only like one certain aspect, so I thought it would be cool to ask you that!

Thanks for answering my questions ;)
