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

Prepar3d Now Offers $49.99 Academic License

Lockheed Martin Prepar3D® simulation software transports students to the scene of the action for an immersive educational experience.


Offering a virtual world simulation that spans from deep underwater all the way to suborbital space, Prepar3D harnesses the power of gaming technology to engage the next generations in science, math and social studies curricula. For a detailed overview please refer to the Prepar3D product overview page.


Prepar3D offers the academic community a platform to develop hands-on lessons. In Prepar3D, students can:

  • Take control and see the effects of their decisions
  • Experiment with challenges that develop critical thinking skills
  • Collaborate with students around the world to solve real-life problems and hone their teamwork skills
  • With a free software development kit that accompanies the program, instructors can create customized academic lessons incorporating features such as people, wildlife, buildings, vehicles and weather.

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.
