Region Distribution

Coming in May 2021, Infinite Flight will launch the region assignment program, allowing controllers to select one of ten global regions around the world, control any airport within that regional boundary at any time, and remain within their area of operation on a more permanent basis. Read more about the change here.

The team has begun to apply for regions, here is what the current distribution looks like.

Added fighter aircraft etiquette guidance

April, 3, 2021 by Tyler Shelton

The following are a good rule of thumb and the recommended military aircraft parameters:

  • Do not exceed M1.0 in normal flight
  • Do not exceed 300KIAS under ATC control or in a congested airspace
  • Do not exceed 250KIAS within 15 miles of the landing airport

If you follow these 3 parameters you should have an enjoyable and trouble-free experience on the Expert Server.

Note that the M1.0 limitation is for normal operations where you may be cruising from one airport to another with other commercial traffic. Exceeding this limit may be common in a training scenario well outside congested airspaces, over open water, or in a designate military operations area (MOA).

GA Day by Infinite Flight takes us to the Adriatic Sea and take in some of the most breathtaking views in the world!

NOTAM: No commercial aircraft permitted at event airports. C172, C208, SR22, XCub, Spitfire, P38, and TBM aircraft only at all hub airports. Failure to adhere to TFR will result in ATC report.

Our second ever GA Day event turns to the stunning locations surrounding the Adriatic Sea. Croatia, Slovenia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina will play host to this month’s event. Known for the sunny shorts, historical locations, and all-round sunny climate, the area also has a thriving GA sector taking people on sightseeing trips. The terrain includes beachy areas, rolling hills, and if you go further afield, mountains to the North!
