The Ultimate Commercial Airline Pilot Career Simulation on Infinite Flight
The new AFKLM Career Mode – Career Mode 2.0 – is here! Starting at Rank 8, it is designed to provide you with the most realistic simulation of a commercial airline pilot career on Infinite Flight.
Here is everything you need to know about how it works and getting started on your new AFKLM Virtual Career.
Airline & Hub Selection:
Pilots will select to fly for either Air France or KLM and will choose an AFKLM hub airport to serve as their primary base of operations.
Rank & Fleet:
Pilots will fly routes delivering passengers to and from their AFKLM hub, earning aircraft hours along the way as work their way up the ranks from regional jets to super heavies.
Before taking the helm on their first CM flight, pilots must complete an aircraft type rating to demonstrate their capacity to operate the aircraft safely during all phases of flight. Type Ratings will be carried out by an AFKLM Academy Flight Instructor based on the pilot's region.
Regional & Small Body Jets:
Heavies & Super Heavies:
Similar to real world commercial airline pilots, CM pilots receive individual Flight Lines (i.e. assigned routes) for the upcoming month based on their hub and type rating.
Flight lines are determined by the Career Mode Flight Manager under the supervision of AFKLM’s Chief Pilot. Pilots can view their assigned routes in the new Career Mode Crew Centre. Pilots, Hubs, Total Hours, Ranks, Flight Lines, Recent Legs, and Status (Active Duty or Certification Required) can be found here.
All Career Mode flight assignments will bring you back to your primary hub via round trip or multi-leg routes, such as Fifth Freedom routes.
Career Mode PIREP Filing Center
All Career Mode flights should be operated with maximum realism and professionalism, including use of proper flight plans, SIDs, STARS, AFKLM terminal parking, and taxi procedures.
File your logs using the new Career Mode PIREP, which will require pilots to record the number of passengers flown, cargo delivered, and fuel carried in their log.
Logs will reflect immediately. Pilots do not have to wait for verification before beginning a new leg.
Additional type ratings will be required prior to converting to a new aircraft. Type Rating exams must be initiated by the pilot by filling out a new Type Rating Registration form via the AFKLM Career Mode Crew Centre.
Additional Crew Centre Resources
The new AFKLM Career Mode Crew Centre will feature easy access to pilot hours, assigned routes and other useful tools and resources, including:
Slack Career Mode Channel
Within 24hrs of registration, you will be added to the private #Career_Mode channel in AFKLM Slack.
You can use the channel to connect directly with Flight Instructors, discuss anything related to Career Mode with fellow pilots, and general speaking as a hub for all CM activity. Pilots will also be notified of promotions via this channel.
To start your new AFKLM Career use the Career Mode Registration form in the AFKLM Crew Centre.
After you complete the Career Mode registration, you will be immediately re-directed to the Career Mode Type Rating form. Within 48hrs, you will be assigned a Flight Instructor and notified via Slack to schedule your Type Rating practical exam.
Ok, that’s it. You’re ready to get to work aviator!
