Wise Decision?

Hello IFC,

I am currently planning for my longest ever flight on IF, PPT-CDG. The ETA is about 18 hours.

Here’s the question…

What server should I fly it on?

I am currently running my iPhone 6 on long hauls. My main issue is that I down want extreme lagging. It is either between Training or Expert.

What are your thoughts?

Might as well try the ES if you want total realism.

If your phone is prone to crashing, I would fly it on Solo to be honest. This results in no aircraft or ATC needing to load, resulting in a smoother experience.

If you want it to be online, I’d say Expert. The only reason that I can see that you’d get any violations is if you ran out of fuel.

I think I am leaning toward Expert because I want realism, and also I will be awake for the last third, so I can monitor fuel levels and plan a possible diversion. Restarting my device before the flight will also help right?

Good news! I flew this exact flight a few weeks ago using my IPhone 6s, all graphics low, Max fuel, low pax, you’ll be fine

I would recommend Expert, and I didn’t step climb either, fuel will not be a problem if you’re light


I used FPLtoIF to plan, is that generally accurate info? Like should I use the fuel it told me to or more?

I would go full fuel, but I used FPLtoIF.com too, and my flight time was 16:38 if that helps

Also so you know, if you use all the tips to prevent app crashes, you will probably make it. My phone never crashed on my 4 flights over 16 hours

Thanks for all the tips @NoahM and all others!

I’m really excited about it, never flown a flight longer than 13 hours, so it could get interesting…
