Since we are almost done with 2019, tell us something that happened on Infinite Flight that you really loved. It could be flying with a certain person, a certain company/plane or just something cool you accomplished.
Best moment in Infinite Flight?
For me, personally, it was definitely when I passed my prac test back in 2018 & joined IFATC.
Since then, I’ve met a range of amazing people from across the globe, made a ton of new friends, memories, moments & more!
Lovin every single second of it!
When I join IFAE. Such a great group of pilots. Really reccomend them!
Many things I could define as being a favorite moment. One of them was starting a 3 year Media position at IFAE and the other many favorite moments was the art I made out of shots of the team. But, one of the best things I remember doing was joining the beta team. Took a lot of leading as a regular and IFAE Pilot/Media Manager and expanding the reach of not only my team but Infinite Flight as well to get there.
I think the best moment in IF would be…
Well there is a bunch but I guess I would say the Best Moment when I became the CEO of Southwest Virtual! Since I’ve been the CEO i’ve really gotten to get to know my pilots more and make connections with people inside and outside of my VA.
Also an accomplishment would be when I did Johannesburg to Atlanta that would be my #1 Longest flight with flight time being 16 Hours and 53 Minutes on my little iPhone XS hehe! @MDoor gave me the motivation finish the flight with his amazing escort to the Atlantic Ocean ;)
There are many more but I guess that’s just a couple of them I can stretch all the way back to 2011 hehe
Perhaps my favorite moments are after completing transcontinental flights arriving at night in either Boston, NY or any other place. Just seeing the sunset over the vast country is beautiful. Just makes me feel real calm at times of stress
As for my favorite moment, it was back in 2017- 2 years ago. Flying for the way long gone FDXVA. I even remember my callsign- FDXVA17. Loved flying for them with the then brand new DC-10F and MD11F. Specifically I was flying from DEN-MEM during the IFVARB 2017 Summit Event. I enjoyed fighting some strong tailwinds descending into Memphis as it was challenging with such turbulence. I’ll never forget that event, so many attendees.
Haha everyone deserves a friendly escort every now and then 😀
My favorite Infinite Flight moment was downloading and spawning for the first time in KSFO in the Spring. It’s as close to love at first sight as it got and now I’m grade 4 :P
When there were so many planes at KJFK for a flash flight that the sim crashed 😂
Buying my first IF subscription in March even though I’ve been playing since 2012! Then joining the IFC in June! I bought my first annual subscription in August! A great year all in all!
You’re spot on; meeting @Hopperbolic and @GraceHopper is high on my list. Going to Oshkosh to meet them and the IF team is a highpoint for me and something that is unique to this community (and DLVA) for sure. Plus, having them come visit me back in Dallas to meet my dog Luna and experience real Texas BBQ (I was tertiary in the reasoning on their trip haha) just shows how this is more real than some think
Getting the invite to the IFATC slack. That really made me feel amazing. It’s such a rewarding thing to achieve I have to say!
The day Global was released. Been able to take off from my hometown airport (TJSJ) was an INCREDIBLE feeling.
A few favorite moments:
- I saw the announcement of development of the global until the big release. My first route in global was not an unknown place. It was KSAN-KLAX (the same as we always did before global). But on that flight when I was cruising I said to myself, ‘man, from here I can go wherever I want’. It was very good feeling.
- The release of ATC’s multiple voices also struck me when Laura published this on Instagram.
- I was happy that after studying and training I was able to joining IFATC.
- And recently seeing that A350 come up behind the C172 was a maximum.I never tire of reviewing that video.
Holy crap how do you remember that
Because it’s it was my greatest flight 💕
Well no, it wasn’t…
I went through the 300+ pages of my IF logbook.
impossible you ate lunch with the IF crew!! That needs to be you best moment ahahaha
