Infinite Flight 22.2

With upcoming aircraft such as the E-Jets, the auto breaking feature may be integrated into the live cockpit displays

Tried getting it out for the Breeze A220 but… IRL work got in the way and school for some of the other folks who helped build it. But she’s here now. 😁

Ah good to know, where did you hear that information?

There’s no official confirmation that it’ll be a feature, but we’ll likely add it as we create new sets of aircraft instruments. We’ll be sure to add it at some point to the existing ones when we revisit them

That’s just my assumption based off of how IF has worked previously, I have no proper confirmation.

im on the B77F rn and it does not show up on the live screens. Little bit sad

I guess I kind of have confirmation now!

Can you guys look into rendering quality settings doesn’t do anything? It’s stuck on high and my phone is experiencing heating and performance issues

We aren’t aware of any issues where it’s stuck on high - I’d advise you create a topic in #support so it can be looked into further

i can change mine. I have it on medium


Gate 50a at Nice doesn’t connect properly just goes through aircraft 😊

make a #support thread so it can be looked at by others too!!!
thank you

Oh good to hear, as the A320/330/350 also has an autobrake indication on the ECAM.
AUTO BRK LO
AUTO BRK MED
AUTO BRK MAX

And for reference this is the EICAS message on the 777 for Autobrake selection.

Issue has been brought to the attention of the editor. Thanks for letting us know. Should be fixed soon

Could the activation of autobrake be indicated on the rudder? There is currently.no way to tell if you have deactivated AB by accident by pulling down on the rudder.

This is purely an inquiry and not a complaint. Please hear me out.

Here it says that max autobrakes are only used for take-off. However, this system actually only applies to the A320/330/340 families of aircraft.

However, it works in an entirely different way on Boeings and even the A380:


(757 autobrake settings)

As you can see here, ‘MAX’ is still used for landing on the 757 and there is an additional RTO setting for rejected takeoffs.


(A380 autobrake settings)

It works in a similar way on the A380, except for the fact that there is an additional ‘Brake to Vacate’ setting here. ‘HI’ can still be used for landing.

May I know why the autobrakes are only modeled after that of a select few Airbus aircraft? Answers/solutions would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

We started with an initial implementation based on the majority of the Airbus family (as well as the EJets) since we have a pilot on this fleet within the team. We’ll likely add aircraft-specific configurations going forward, but for v1 we decided to do one implementation properly that we could iterate on.

Max in IF is the corresponding level as RTO on the Boeing family

We can look into that as a UX improvement at some point, thanks!

If you check the HUD view a message is displayed when auto-breaking is active

Thank you for the explanation; I am also excited for the possibility of aircraft-specific autobrake configurations being added in the future.
