After more than a month in the making, close to 20 iterations with the precious help of about 30 beta testers (thanks, all!), I am proud to announce that Infinite Pilots has been approved today by Apple :)
What is Infinite Pilots?
It is a companion app for Infinite Flight:
- Get notified when your favorite pilots or controllers are online!
- Track flights on a map - you can zoom in all the way to airport level
- CO-PILOT VIEW: hop on the right seat and follow your favorite pilot in a 3D environment!
Record your flight and share it on social media - yes, you can record the screen :). Please note recording currently does not work on first generation devices (Apple have released this feature in their latest iOS update, and are working to improve it so that it can work on all devices).
Create custom notifications: never miss when your friends are having fun flying online, or when your favorite controller is around!

Q: Why isn’t it free?
A: Because it took a lot of time and efforts to develop.
Q: Will there be an Android version?
A: Very unlikely I’m afraid. I had to learn Swift from scratch for this app, and I doubt I’ll be motivated enough to learn Java as well :)
Q: Will it send me a notification when the pilots / controllers in my list get online?
A: Absolutely. And I hope you’ll like the little sound notification that comes along :) (which can be disabled, by the way). Just make sure you never force quit the app, otherwise notifications will stop working until you launch it again.
Q: How do I add a pilot / controller?
A: Click the “+” button on the top right of the screen.
Q: How do I delete a pilot / controller?
A: Swipe it to the left (like you would do with emails)
Q: 3D buildings? Really?
A: Yes, indeed. Bear in mind the co-pilot feature is still a little bit experimental, I’ll improve it in the future to better work when closer to the ground. I also need a bit of help from Infinite Flight’s API to make it work better ;)
Q: Do I need to have Infinite Flight on the device I’m using to run Infinite Pilots?
A: No. In fact, you don’t even need to have a live account to be able to use Infinite Pilots.
Q: What if I have further questions or feedback?
A: Post them in this thread :)
Finally, please note Infinite Pilots is NOT affiliated with IF or FDS.
