In-Flight Assistant (iOS): V-Speed Update 1.8 Is Out! Bring your Infinite Flight experience to a new level!

Well actually, “Arm doors” is part of the welcome message.
There is a setting to get the welcome message at pushback or at engine start.
What you are describing happens when “Pushback First” is on and you start the engine first instead of pushing back first.
In those cases make sure “Pushback First” is off.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Can I confirm.that the VNAV option isn’t yet available on Android?

Thanks

#2378

That is correct.

Please see this topic for the development of the Android version.

Hi @epaga and @Jan.

Can I make the voice commands and VNAV features work if IF-A runs on IO-S (together with say IF-A), while IF runs on Android?

Thanks

#2385

Nope, IF-A only runs on the same device as IF. (Ha! I was faster than Jan for once!)

@epaga Is it possible to implement a “Hold” button to hold over a certain waypoint if required under constraints like:

  1. only one hold per flight
  2. max hold time of 1 hour, or 15min lesser than flight time based on fuel remaining; whichever is lower (max 1 hr)
  3. when holding, flight climbs to FL400 @ fixed Vs of 800 so that chances of interfering with other flights are lower (so this feature will be only for airliners; not for GA)
  4. Holding ends if max time expired; or user ends the hold. If max time expired, then flight continues on plan, but descends @800 fpm to original cruise altitude. All further waypoint inputs, however should be disabled at this point so that we don’t have planes descending at 10000fpm all of a sudden to be at a certain height by a certain waypoint - thus preventing random crashes/violations/ghosting after hold

We all fly at random times and sometimes things come up just when one is about to land or even start descent. A hold button would be very useful at this point rather than manually mapping out circles.

Just a wish! I don’t know if it can be implemented; but would be awesome to have.

@epaga when I flew on another device with IFA. For the RAAS it was not a mans voice it was a women’s voice. Is there a way to change the voice?

#2389

I can’t even be recognized. I am a Texan, though

#2390

The app uses one of the voices of the TTS engine installed on your device.

It picks American English first.

#2391

Are you on iOS ?

#2392

Yes I am on the IOS. @Jan what do you mean by TTS?

#2393

You need to go to settings then general then accessibility then speech then you can change the voice

#2394

TTS = Text to Speech engine.
You can select voices under Accessibility, Speech.

#2395

under inflight assistant?
