Infinite Flight 2021/2022 Roadmap

Infinite Flight Roadmap

Whilst Infinite Flight only just released a large update that added 3D airports and improved ground image quality, they continue to build on the mobile platform for their community members. The news shared on the Infinite Flight blog details exactly what’s to come next from the team, including details on a brand new aircraft: the A220-300.

As mentioned, the next big aircraft in development for Infinite Flight is the A220-300, which will come with full 3D modelling. This will give users of the app the chance to fly the new Airbus aircraft on routes around the virtual world. Following the A220 release, Infinite Flight will turn attention to the military fleet already present in the sim. In particular, the F/A-18 will be given some much-needed love to bring it up to a more modern standard. Finally, attention will eventually turn to the Embraer E-Jet family of aircraft. Exactly which model will be added has yet to be decided.

Beyond aircraft, Infinite Flight will continue to develop other features, including continuing with Project Metal. Project Metal will bring improved atmospherics, more 3D objects and improved lighting.

Whilst this roadmap seems a little light, there’s still plenty going on behind the scenes at Infinite Flight that we’re sure will be revealed when they’re ready to be shown. For now, check out the latest news from the release of Infinite Flight 21.5, which added a bunch of new airports to the mobile sim.

You can check out the free version over on the App Store for iOS or on Google Play for Android.
