Infinite Flight Update 19.2 Released

Back in May, we shared the trailer for the upcoming XCub update in Infinite Flight. The XCub inclusion was just a portion of the 19.2 update, which brings a range of new updates, fixes and change to the mobile flight simulator.

The XCub comes as part of the app purchase (replacing the Super Decathlon) so that all users of Infinite Flight will get to enjoy the taildragger aircraft. Those who own the app will get to enjoy a selection of new liveries of the aircraft and also steam gauges from within the cockpit. The steam version includes the CGR30P for engine instruments and the Garmin 796 for the GPS. Those who have the Pro subscription will be able to enjoy more liveries as well as, for the first time in Infinite Flight, a functional glass cockpit.

The glass cockpit will show data from your aircraft on the displays from within the cockpit. Included in the update will be the Garmin G5 and the G3X Touch screen. It’s worth noting that Infinite Flight acknowledges that these new displays have some limited features and functionality, but they are looking to continue adding and improvements as technology and devices become more powerful.

In addition to the XCub and also the glass cockpit displays, Infinite Flight 19.2 also brings progressive taxi for ATC to the app. Controllers will be able to give you progressive instructions when on the ground to avoid conflicts with other aircraft. Some examples include “turn left next taxiway” or “follow the aircraft ahead” and more.

Furthermore, Infinite Flight 19.2 also includes the ability for users to further edit their flight plan on the map interface. You can now use touch gestures and controls to move waypoints and manipulate things easier than before for a more accurate flight plan.

The final other main inclusion within the update is a range of new liveries to celebrate the EAA 50th Anniversary. The livery will be available for the newly added XCub as well as the B747-200, which is also celebrating its 50th birthday this year. To celebrate the fact that Infinite Flight are also AirVenture 2019 exhibitors, the team will be hosting specific Oshkosh events in the coming weeks.

You can find out more about Infinite Flight on the website, or you can read our extensive hands-on with the mobile flight simulator in one of our past articles.
