In-Flight Assistant

John Goering
Add a whole new dimension of realism to your Infinite Flight experience with this polished, third-party add-on to Infinite Flight, the best mobile flight sim on the App Store!

Hear over 30 co-pilot voice samples during your flight, whether it's takeoff callouts like "V₁", "Rotate!", or "Positive Rate", or whether it's warnings when speed limits are being approached, or confirmation callouts when setting flaps or gear settings.

In-Flight Assistant is NOT a flight simulator itself but rather requires Infinite Flight to provide voice callouts and realistic automated warnings for your flights.

====================
HOW IT WORKS

Start In-Flight Assistant, then launch Infinite Flight on the same device - you'll hear a confirmation that In-Flight Assistant is connected. It will now be watching your flight and provide the callouts as you configured them within the app. It's that simple!

====================
CO-PILOT CALLOUTS

The following callouts are provided:

• "80 knots"
• "V₁"
• "V₂"
• "Rotate"
• "Positive Rate"
• "Let's watch our speed, captain" warning when taxiing or flying too fast
• "Gear up/down" confirmation
• "Flaps at XXX degrees" / "Flaps Final" confirmations
• Spoiler status
• 4 voices, including Mark 'Skyhawk Heavy' Denton!
• Autofill feature for v-speeds (NEW)

=============
PASSENGER ANNOUNCEMENTS (IN-APP PURCHASE)

* Welcome aboard announcement
* Arm doors for departure & cross-check
* Safety briefing
* Flight attendants, take seats for takeoff (when turning on strobes)
* "You may move about the cabin now, etc."
* Descent beginning
* Welcome post-landing

=============
RUNWAY AWARENESS AND ADVISORY SYSTEM (IN-APP PURCHASE)

* "APPROACHING RUNWAY 12R", "ON RUNWAY 12R"
* "CAUTION TAXIWAY"
* "FLAPS FLAPS"
* "UNSTABLE UNSTABLE"
* "TOO HIGH TOO HIGH"
* "TOO FAST TOO FAST"
* Many more..

====================
AUTOMATED GPWS WARNINGS, FLIGHT ALERTS, SIMPLE VNAV (IN-APP PURCHASE)

Experience fully-featured GPWS warning callouts such as "TOO LOW, GEAR", "SINK RATE", or "PULL UP!" - in accordance with the specification of the real-world Honeywell MK VI GPWS system - with all 6 modes supported, including turboprop alternative settings (automatically detected), Steep Approach Bias, Flap Override settings, and more.

(NEW) Also provides a waypoint proximity alert system and a simplified "VNAV" system where you can set altitudes and speeds you want the autopilot to have per waypoint!

The following callouts are provided:

• Autopilot disconnect warning sound (Airbus / Boeing)
• "GLIDESLOPE" both quiet and loud, depending on how low you are
• "SINKRATE"
• "PULL UP! PULL UP!"
• "TERRAIN! TERRAIN!"
• "DON'T SINK"
• "TOO LOW, TERRAIN"
• "TOO LOW, GEAR"
• "TOO LOW, FLAPS"
• "APPROACHING MINIMUMS"
• "MINIMUMS" or "MINIMUMS, MINIMUMS" (configurable)
• "BANK ANGLE" based on aircraft type, altitude, speed, autopilot setting, etc.
• "RETARD, RETARD" when landing in an Airbus

=============
VOICE COMMANDS (IN-APP PURCHASE)

Using a headset mic, use voice commands to control many of the airplane's systems! Once it is set up, In-Flight Assistant will be listening for your voice to say things like "gear up", "set heading 2-3-0", and much more, and your co-pilot will set the autopilot settings for you!

IMPORTANT A headset and a quiet environment is recommended for best accuracy. The stronger your non-American accent, the less accurate the recognition may work.

====================

What's new in version 1.080
CORE
- The v-speed update is here at NO EXTRA CHARGE! Auto-fill your aircraft's "v-speeds" by tapping the "autofill" button after entering a flight in Infinite Flight! When your co-pilot says "Rotate" during takeoff, slowly pull back on the rudder for a silky smooth takeoff!

PASSENGER ANNOUNCEMENTS
- Tweaked Passenger Announcements: Activating your seatbelt sign will trigger the welcome announcement. Using your throttle will now start the safety briefing.
- Alternatively, if "Pushback Active" is on, then pushback will activate the welcome announcement, otherwise starting an engine will activate the welcome announcement.
- Turning off your seatbelt sign while climbing will now activate the "Safe to move about the cabin" announcement.
