We have been hard at work over the past few months to continue improving Infinite Flight.
Today we are pleased to announce that we are expanding our existing 15m imagery coverage. The new dataset contains ~500GB of new imagery (around 30% more coverage).
The best thing is that it is available now, with no bulky download necessary, at no cost to all our Infinite Flight Pro Subscribers. All you need to do is relaunch Infinite Flight and start flying from/to those newly covered regions (you might have to clear your scenery cache in Settings -> General -> Clear Cache).
Here are the main changes:
- Africa is now 100% covered
- Russia coverage is almost complete
- Madagascar + Indian Ocean islands are now covered.
- Many islands in the Pacific Ocean are now covered.
In order to give you an idea of what changed, below is the current coverage area compared to the new one:

We should be able to add the rest of the world (including South America) by the end of the year. The regions that we don’t have yet are usually regions with heavy cloud cover that are harder to process.
Note that we also updated our Navigation Database and added the new content from the Airport Editing Team.
We hope that you enjoy this update as much as we do! As always, take a second to rate the app if you haven’t already.
One more thing…
As you know, we have been working on a new CRJ. Its release is taking longer than expected due to the higher quality standard we have adopted for our upcoming aircraft.
We have many performance issues to solve before we are able to add this “new generation” of aircraft to Infinite Flight and ensure a good experience on all devices.
In the meantime, we have been developing a couple more aircraft. We actually have a very small teaser for one of them showing one aspect of the new level of quality you can be expecting (I am sure you will quickly recognize what aircraft it is):
We can’t wait to show you more!
