Add a whole new dimension of realism to your Infinite Flight experience with this polished, third-party add-on to Infinite Flight, the best mobile flight sim on the App Store!
Hear over 30 co-pilot voice samples during your flight, whether it's takeoff callouts like "V₁", "Rotate!", or "Positive Rate", or whether it's warnings when speed limits are being approached, or confirmation callouts when setting flaps or gear settings.
In-Flight Assistant is NOT a flight simulator itself but rather requires Infinite Flight to provide voice callouts and realistic automated warnings for your flights.

HOW IT WORKS
Start In-Flight Assistant, then launch Infinite Flight on the same device - you'll hear a confirmation that In-Flight Assistant is connected. It will now be watching your flight and provide the callouts as you configured them within the app. It's that simple!
The following callouts are provided:
• "80 knots"
• "Positive Rate"
• "Let's watch our speed, captain" warning when taxiing or flying too fast
• "Gear up/down" confirmation
• "Flaps at XXX degrees" / "Flaps Final" confirmations
• Spoiler status
• 4 voices, including Mark 'Skyhawk Heavy' Denton!

AUTOMATED GPWS WARNINGS, FLIGHT ALERTS, SIMPLE VNAV (IN-APP PURCHASE)
Experience fully-featured GPWS warning callouts such as "TOO LOW, GEAR", "SINK RATE", or "PULL UP!" - in accordance with the specification of the real-world Honeywell MK VI GPWS system - with all 6 modes supported, including turboprop alternative settings (automatically detected whether the aircraft is a turboprop), Steep Approach Bias, Flap Override settings, and more.
(NEW) Also provides a waypoint proximity alert system and a simplified "VNAV" system where you can set altitudes and speeds you want the autopilot to have per waypoint!
The following callouts are provided:
• Autopilot disconnect warning sound (Airbus / Boeing)
• "GLIDESLOPE" both quiet and loud, depending on how low you are
• "PULL UP! PULL UP!"

• "RETARD, RETARD" when landing in an Airbus
VOICE COMMANDS (IN-APP PURCHASE)
Using a headset mic, use voice commands to control many of the airplane's systems! Once it is set up, In-Flight Assistant will be listening for your voice to say things like "gear up", "set heading 2-3-0", and much more, and your co-pilot will set the autopilot settings for you!
IMPORTANT A headset and a quiet environment is recommended for best accuracy. The stronger your non-American accent, the less accurate the recognition may work.

Ratings and Reviews
Amazing app but could be even better
I love this app and I consistently use it for almost every single one of my flights on infinite flight. I love the RAAS capabilities as well as the flight attendant calls. Although this is great I think a great addition to the game would be a TCAS system. I have no idea if this would be possible or hard to make in game but I think that would really give IF the most realism. It could have a warning if an aircraft turns orange (gets with in 3 miles at similar altitudes) that you would hear a TRAFFIC TRAFFIC call out and possibly even aircraft type, altitude, and in what direction they are in relation to you. It would be even cooler if when an aircraft gets to be red that you get the CLIMB CLIMB and the DESCEND DESCEND warnings. This would bring an amazing realism feel to the game. Again I have no idea if this is possible but if it was I would really appreciate that and I think others would too. Regardless this is still a really good app and does a good job at what it’s supposed to do. Thanks for making such an amazing app.
Great companion app to infinite flight!
In-flight Assistant is a great application that runs in the background while you play the flight simulator infinite flight. There are currently 4 in app purchases that you can make. I recommend the first 2 for sure co-pilot callouts and flight management warnings. Makes the flight sim experience even better. I just bought the third in app purchase where the flight attendants run through there preflight checks. It's very good but I am sure there are things John can do to make it better in the future as infinite flight releases the global update.
Note: I have not purchased the voice command options, so I am not sure how well they work or not.
Overall, this is a great app and I look forward to seeing John improve the app.
Good app, stupid prices
I've been a fan of IF ever since I bought the game, and the global update recently brought my attention back to the game after a short hiatus. This app does make the flight experience feel much better, but the pricing just feels way too high. For what you get, the add-ons should really be $1.99 or $0.99, unless if you were to add some extra features to them like multiple GPWS voices, or multiple different sounds for the PA (Really, the only reason I got the app was for the GPWS warnings and callouts, and I wasn't pleased when I saw that there wasn't any options for the sounds). Also, one co-pilot voice (Mark, I believe) says "Let's watch our speed dumba--" if you go too fast... Really, dude? I payed $10 to get cussed out?
