Mobile flight simulator Infinite Flight has been updated to version 20.1. The brand new version of the flight sim includes the long-awaited B772 update, a complete rework of the B737 Cockpit and the global navigation data and instrument procedures. This means users can use real-world accurate SIDs and STARs, along with other procedures when flying on the flight simulator. The full blog post on the Infinite Flight website details everything, but we’ve summarised everything below.
The B772 is one of the most flown aircraft in Infinite Flight, but the aircraft was one of the first originally made for the sim. However, many wanted to have a brand new update which has now been created. This updated version of the 777-200ER includes animated cockpits, gear tilt, a functional APU and much more. Various liveries are also included such as KLM, British Airways and many more,
Whilst the 777 has seen a significant update, as has the 737. Now in the latest version, pilots can enjoy a fully reworked flight deck with working instruments including EICAS, PFD, Navigation Display, Flight Management Display for GPS monitoring, and so much more.
Alongside the changes to these aircraft is also Vertical Navigation (VNAV) integration. This is the first version of VNAV descent and will allow people to follow altitudes on the waypoints based on the new global navigation database. Speaking of the new database, version 20.1 will now enable pilots to fly true to life instrument procedures. Users without an Infinite Flight Pro subscription can still enjoy all of this data that fits within the region boundaries in solo mode.
