What's the best "newbie" plane?

Which would be your first choice to start using the live mode

The 737, any of them.


A beginner plane is the 172 figure out how to fly and then step it up from there @Samuel123abc who starts to learn to fly with a 737


Start with the ‘smaller’ passenger jets. The 737 and E Jets (if you have them) are some of these. The A320 when it comes out will also probably be good.

This guy starts with a 737 after a month 😉 He might already have flown a Cessna enough in solo.


C172 or C208.

I already saw that video i’ts awesome

Totally agree

757 is an easy one. Just watch the throttles and airspeed because the 757 can go up like a rocket.

208 is an easy one, but is not as thrilling as flying a jetliner. You definitely should fly it because it gets you in and out of short airfields in a breeze, but may seem undwerwhelming at first.

777-300ER is anothet awesome one. However, keep in mind that it’s big and is also a rocket.

767-300ER is fine too. Not my favorite but another solid aircraft.

757 is my favourite aircraft to fly! I’m always flying it to KSFO!

The bigger the plane the easier it is to fly, the smaller, the more difficult.

The 737 would probably be the best one to start with. Along with the 747s, they have the most realistic flight characteristics of all the planes.
Once you master this, you will find anything larger will be pretty easy to fly and you will be better prepared to try the smaller planes, especially in crosswind conditions.

Had to get rid of a few options to get under 20 options.

I, personally, started flying on Infinite Flight with British Airways’ Embraer 190 doing lots and lots of circuits at London City, back when the autopilot on the E190 was horrendous.

I think that with the physics of the E190 having been updated, that it’s probably a decent beginner plane.

Before the 5 mins. change limit times out, please changs 757-300/-400 to -200. Sorry but my OCD is killing me now

172 hands down. A very forgiving aircraft.
