When will this update be?

Active development is underway, and will be released when the aircraft is in a state to be released to the general public. Please see below regarding the Challenger progress:

It has been mentioned that the Challenger 350 will not arrive in 2022. It has also been made clear that it will arrive after the release of the Embraer 190 as that aircraft is still in development, or was in development at the time of writing this.


Why are you building the Challenger 350 and not simply reworking the Cessna Citation X?

The Challenger 350 will offer as a replacement for the Cessna Citation X. That said, it has been mentioned and noted from staff that upon the release of the Challenger 350, the Cessna Citation will be removed. For those that have been around for sometime, they will be conducting the same process that they did with the Super Decathlon and the XCub. Instead of reworking the “Super D” it was favored to replace it with something more commonly used in today’s world, one that had some more “tech” to it and one that had easily accessible resources.

Infinite Flight staff have mentioned that they were in the search for a new and more up to date business jet. Given the overall age of the Cessna Citation X and access to data, Infinite Flight determined that it was in a well suited position to utilize data, images, and resources that they have easier access to for this development. It has also been mentioned that the Challenger will offer a vast selection of operators from all around the world. The Challenger 350 also ticked off the boxes that Infinite Flight was looking for and feels that this move will be welcomed by the community.



How will my device handle the new features?

Infinite Flight is working hard to ensure everyone can enjoy this new content. Quality settings will allow users to reduce the number of airport objects visible to adapt to their device performance. Overall, it is believed that users won’t have a hard time running this update on their devices. More information will be made available as the update gets closer to release.


This model/feature doesn’t look right. Can you fix it?

While features are in testing, the internal Infinite Flight Alpha/Beta testers will be searching for inconsistencies, errors, bugs and everything in between. While these features are in development, anything posted on Infinite Flights Social Media isn’t set in stone and it may get corrected before the public release. That being said, if you find any inconsistencies, feel free to comment on this thread or private message one of our staff members or moderators and they will happily address any issues that you may find.


Why haven’t we seen a teaser from Infinite Flight in awhile regarding the Challenger 350?

While Infinite Flight strives to provide us with sneak peeks of the new aircraft; they have lives too and while things are still in the development/testing stage, some things are not ready to be shown to the public yet. Also - what’s the fun in ruining all of the surprises!

I saw some additional pictures shared on the #WIP channel in Discord, am I allowed to share those?

Great question! You are more than welcome to share them if you choose to do so. One of the perks of being in the Discord Server is that early access or privileged viewing of WIP shots that others won’t have the opportunity to see, so if you don’t want to share them with others here on the Community, then that’s totally fine!
