What flight simulator did you play before you discovered IF?

I’d like to know what flight simulators you guys played before you discovered IF. I used to play “Airplane Fly …”by Tri One Games. You basically fly a plane in a specific region and in every app there is a different region. I also used to play “Airplane” by Quantum Design Group. The principle is the same as “Airplane Fly”. Here are a few pics from both:

I realize how advanced IF is and i’m so happy I sticked with it. I now want to know what you guys played before you discovered IF.


Not sure if talking about other sims is something we should be doing on the Infinite Flight Community.


I was on Xplane 10 which I still use but I use IF way more.

Topics about other flight simulators isn’t something we usually allow here on the IFC for obvious reasons. It’s an Infinite Flight Community after all. However… We’ll make a little exception here as long as you stay on topic with the main question: What flight simulator did you play before you discovered Infinite Flight?" ✈️

Maybe you can tell us your story how you ended up playing Infinite Flight! What made you switch from the other game to Infinite Flight? 🤩


Every free flight game on the app store pretty much, 2-3 years ago didnt feel like paying for anything at that point, ended up watching youtube videos on flight sims and eventually got to infinite flight, and i was like whatever worth a try bought it flew around in the regions for a bit, got the sub and then was flying non stop.

This one and many other like this, please don’t hate me 😅

I never played a real flight simulator before… The only game with planes which wasn’t complete garbage was Unmatched AirTraffic Control

I used to play “Airplane Fly Hawaii” and “Fly Bush Pilot” before I came to IF. I was younger and didn’t feel like spending money, plus I thought it was realistic. 😂

I was looking for good flight sims/games when I purchased Infinite Flight on a Kindle Fire in 2015. I didn’t take it seriously (it was too realistic), but I was hooked nonetheless.

I got IF on my iPad 2017 as soon as I could, then got a subscription in 2019. And I’m here now!

I played XP10 mobile, Airplane Fly Hawaii, Pro Pilot Sim, and probably one of my favourites; Sky Gamblers Storm Raiders.

This was a long time ago, but before Infinite Flight, I used to play F-Sim Space Shuttle. I really can’t remember how I got it, but I think Infinite Flight was simply not discoverable back in the day by searching “Flight Simulator” on the App Store so I went for F-Sim Space Shuttle instead. It’s a great game, albeit now very outdated. After a while, I wanted to try something different (like actually taking off an airplane and not just landing a shuttle) and that’s how I found Infinite Flight :)


The only one I remember is Extreme Landings. I really liked the “simulator” except I couldn’t make a free flight without having to pay something. One day, when my dad gave me some money, I was buying almost every flight simulator, and I bought Infinite Flight. I didn’t really liked the game, I thought I have to do missions but after one year, I realised that I can fly almost everywhere. I had Pro on February 2018 and since I always fly on IF.

F-Sim Shuttle is still great. I pull it up from time to time :)


Infinite Flight has been the first ever app i downloaded on my moms IPhone 5 when I was 6 years old back in 2012. I remember my mom buying a subscription for me 2 years later when I was 8. I never regretted it :) Here I am, 8 years later, still playing, 1000+ hours.


Fly Hawaii. Oh my god. The memories…


none. ‎‎‎‎‎‎‎

If I am not counting IF, the nostalgia of flying a DC-3 in this one was 😜


I played X-plane mobile since 2015. Will have to agree that most the planes and scenery looks the same. And discovered IF in 2019
