Matthieu and Philippe of Flying Development Studios
We talk with Matthieu and Philippe about the new launch of Infinite Flight on iOS!
Infinite Flight for iOS is a universal app that runs on iPhone 4 & 4s, iPad 1 & 2 & 3 and iPod Touch 4th Generation. Priced at $4.99, it features multiple airplanes, realistic physics simulation, heads up display, autopilot, 2 regions with 140+ airports, configurable time & weather settings, a beginner tutorial, logbook and more.
Along with the new iPad retina display support and various bug fixes, version 1.1 gives access to the full fleet of airplanes that we have in house ... for free. We initially wanted to ship those as in-app purchases but decided instead to show our commitment to our users with more free content.
Here is the full list of features and fixes for this release:
- 7 new free aircrafts
- F/A-18 Hornet
- Airbus A321
- Boeing 787-900 Dreamliner
- C-17 Globemaster III
- Supermarine Spitfire
- Boeing 747-400
- A-10 Warthog
- iPad3 Retina Display support (running at native resolution 2048x1536)
- Fixed multitasking support
- Scrollbars on listboxes
- Airplane list is now properly showing all the available airplanes
- Increased the message time in the tutorial
- Better font sizes on the iPad1 and iPad2

Orbx makes Prepar3d SBSLs FREE
The Orbx team is pleased to announce that effective immediately, all SBSLs will be now given away for free.
For all customers who have already purchased SBSLs, Orbx will arrange with FSS to provide a store credit for your purchases which can be used against any items in the FSS store.
We firmly believe that the future of flight simulation is Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D. It is the most mature and robust code, and has a world-class development team actively maintaining the code and planning many exciting new features coming including DX11 support, a new rendering engine and many of the visual enhancements you would expect to run on today's hardware. We are indeed very excited to be working closely with LM as they move to the version 2.0 release.
Of course last week's announcement of the $49 Academic versions removes the main barrier for anyone wanting to migrate to the best platform.
