Frequently Asked Questions

Will <insert random feature here> be included in the F/A-18 Super Hornet Update?

The only information that confirms whether something will or will not be added will be from Infinite Flight’s official social media. Until then, features in this update are unknown.

If you would like a feature to be added in future Infinite Flight updates, search in the #features category to see if a feature request has been created. If someone else has already requested this feature, give that topic a vote and show your support for that feature on that topic. If nobody else has requested that feature yet, you are welcome to create a well-thought-out and detailed #features request for it. While not the sole factor in decisions, our great staff team is always watching the #features category to see what the community wants. Please refrain from asking for a certain feature in this thread.

Note: you must be TL2 to post a topic in the #features category


Additionally, the Infinite Flight Staff Team recently hosted an hour-long livestream where they discussed the developmental status of numerous projects in development. Check out this blog post for a recap of what’s to come in 2022 and beyond


When will this update be?

This update is still in the development phase. There has been no word on when this update will come.


Why the Super Hornet?

The results of a week-long community poll showed a greater want for the Super Hornet over the C variant.


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 a while regarding the Super Hornet?

While Infinite Flight strives to provide us with sneakpeaks on 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!


Why is this topic closed?

If you happen to stumble upon this topic being closed, it is due to the fact that our community needed a cooldown due to their sheer overexcitement for the F/A-18 Super Hornet. This topic is opened when new information is available. It is then closed sometime after to ensure that the conversation is relevant and targeted. Within this timeframe, please refrain from posting another likewise topic about the update and its features.


Why did my reply get deleted?

While community engagement is always encouraged, your post may have been deleted because it was flagged or it was removed directly by our Moderation Team for being off-topic, misleading, silly, unnecessary, or just plain rude. Make sure to read our Community Guidelines before posting and always ensure that your post can contribute to the active on-topic discussion of the F/A-18 Super Hornet!

The F/A-18E is starting to take shape! 😍

For this aircraft, our 3D artists have leveraged a technology that lets them build a grid of proportions. This will allow them to build the most accurate model based on control points by using a large number of photo references. Today, we’re sharing an example of how this is achieved from a side angle.” - Infinite Flight

Oh wow, that’s an incredible way of 3D modeling! I can’t wait to do aerobatics and flybys in a reworked jet! Hopefully it comes with an opening cockpit, working arrestor hook and launch bar, and moving exhaust nozzles. Thanks IF!

Looks awesome! I can’t wait for it to be finished so I can fly it. Definitely looking forward to taking this as high as possible. And then going a bit farther. 😏
