Just a fun question for everyone… What was your hardest flight you’ve ever flown in Infinite Flight? Mine was a few days ago, when I tried to do a flight from KPSP to KLAX on Training Server 1 while in a moving car. The takeoff and landing was a nightmare!
Mine’s probably flying a spitfire from KLAX to KNUC in a moving car going over 110k/ph with bumps all over the road, and without autopilot. (SOLO, because I had no WiFi in the outback of Australia)
My hardest flight is probably when I was using a 3D headset to fly in IF, acting as if it was a VR headset
When I was landing in 0.38km visibility with a dash 8. I got a bit too confident that I’d land 1st time and actually emerged from the fog about 50ft above the taxiway… Went around 😂
100 meter visibility at KASE. It wasn’t me flying, I was controlling and watching people crashing into the ridge right in front of the runway 😂
110 knots in the Caribbean in a 172. Full throttle was necessary to go forward at 5 knots.
Or maybe 0M visibility at KAVX? Flying VFR with NO HUD, all I had was DME and alt MSL. Was simulating fuel and didn’t have enough to make it back (because I’m an idiot). Had to do 5-6 attempts but eventually managed it. No idea how
My hardest landing is when its almost touch the runway but my wifi connection is down
My first ever approach to WMBT it was in a 737 and I lined up like I wold normally do and continued because I had too much trust in my localiser and glide slope… needless to say I ended up crashing.
it wasnt really a “flight” since i couldnt start one xD it was like 2years ago at kase in denver.the crosswind was like 40-50knots, i barely pull back the yoke of my ERJ175 and i got blasted off the runway immediately. ive tried it twice but i was too ashamed to try for the third time …but then again i didnt really know how to use the rudder back then :)
A few weeks ago, trying to fly while working my customer service job. Can’t tell you how many times I had to go around because of customers coming in. Let’s just say if this was global, I would have run out of fuel.
Yes - I remember that flight challenge. I had to go around twice before landing. That was certainly the most difficult landing I have ever attempted - I just about managed to stay on the runway. I seem to remember Tyler Shelton doing it first time and uploading a video of it
Heathrow - Birmingham during turbulence on a plane (solo)
Nevertheless… it was fun! i dont think we were the only ones who had problems 🙂
A few days ago on expert, I tried flagging a post on the forum while landing an F22 with crosswinds. Since the F22 doesn’t have autopilot, i was landing it manually. I’d say it was one of my hardest flights ever.
Lol any flight out of TS! would be mine.
KDEN in a 777-300 with 10ft visibility, at night and 40kt direct crosswind
Once my friend flew me in a Cessna around Sydney. It was a pretty windy day and I was stupid enough to even think I could renact the flight on IF Live training server. I did but. Only just😂
About a year ago i was flying for one my very first times and i was flying on live. I was in a tui 737 and was flying from KLAX to KSAN with perfect weather. Since it was one of my very first flights i was pretty dumb. I sent in a message to atc requesting landing clearance and they cleared me to land, then not knowing how high i was and how close to the airport i was i was dumb and nose dived trying to make it to the runway and crashed in front of about 10 people holding short. :)
Wow! Your data bundle with your mobile provider must be huge!
I made a sport to try to land the C130 on the shortest possible runway. If I remember well, the shortest runway I landed on was 1250 feet. My front wheel was in the fields ;-)
One time we had a hurricane at St Maarten. The storm caught us by surprise and the airport was ‘open’. At shirt final with my 777-200 I had 110 knots headwind, and I was struggling to get closer to the runway. I did make it and landed, but smashed my landing gear. Crazy. Next time, I’ll divert…
110 knots headwind? Wow that’s strong.
