Before I got to know Infinite Flight, I was baffled at why people would pay so much for a mere mobile flight sim with pretty trash graphics compared to many PC simulators.
However, a friend eventually introduced me to the world of Infinite Flight, and I was hooked. I can’t pinpoint exactly what it was, but the game had just the perfect balance between simplicity and realism, a balance which no other simulator offered.
After spending time getting to know the Infinite Flight Community, I realised that you guys were another reason I keep renewing my subscription. A vibrant community, full of character, humour and kindness. I can guarantee you that Microsoft Flight Simulator or X-Plane doesn’t have nearly as many active forum members as we do, and their communities are more of an advanced technical discussion, rather than the lighthearted and fun stuff we have here.
When playing on my friend’s Microsoft Flight Simulator X on VATSIM (their multiplayer server), i was shocked to find that most airports, even major ones, were very rarely staffed by ATC, and airports with ATC also generated very few arrivals.
Whereas in Infinite Flight, I can regularly see more than a hundred people heading for the same airport at the same time, truly proving how dedicated and loyal of a community we are.
But when the outsiders judge Infinite Flight, I can’t possibly blame them. After all, we don’t have working flight management computers or a proper braking system, among so many things we don’t have that PC flight sim players take for granted.
I will be getting a copy of FSX in a few days, and that would certainly open up my horizons even further, allowing me to explore deeper in my passion for aviation.
But still, Infinite Flight is worth it for me. The community has been a huge part of my Infinite Flight journey, and I thank you all for it.
How about you?
