So you have chosen your livery for your flight. If you’re having trouble selecting a route, see the Boeing 757 Route Database created by @CPT_Colorado
So the flight is picked, the livery selected… But how do we do flight planning?! With @AndrewWu’s new topic - we can calculate everything that we’ll need to know!

Taking off and landing is going to be tricky for your first couple of flights - this is because the 757 physics are spot on to real life’s. Don’t worry though, @DeerCrusher was kind enough to make us a tutorial on how to takeoff and land effectively in the Infinite Flight 757. He even made us a Boeing 757 Quick Reference Guide (down below)!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Is the Boeing 757-300 included in the 20.3 update?
Only the Boeing 757-200 Passenger variant is included in the 20.3 update.
Why did some liveries go away in the 20.3 update?
If I find an issue, how may I report it?
If you find an issue, you can report it by making a #support topic and thoroughly explaining the issue.
Please note that most issues have already been found and reported during both our opened and closed beta programs during the 20.3 update beta.
Why does the cockpit only have one model? Will this change in the future?
The cockpit only has the full glass screen interior right now (rather than the full glass and steam gauges). This was to save time in the development phase and was to quickly get the product in to your hands!
As stated by @MishaCamp (Staff Member at Infinite Flight), even though steam gauges aren’t in the 20.3 update, the Infinite Flight Staff and Development Team may add them into the simulator in the future
