Ever since I was a kid, I've played flight simulators. The earliest versions of them that I remember were 256-color simulations that ran on your desktop computer, and if you're like most people who grew up in the 90s, this meant your family's only computer was completely occupied so you could fly your Cessna out of Meigs Field in Chicago. In 2019, this is no longer the case. In fact, many families don't even have desktop computers anymore. And Meigs Field is gone (for now).
Today, more and more people are accessing nearly everything online via mobile devices. From communications and entertainment, to education and tools, it seems everything today is available on your smartphone or tablet.
But what about flight simulation?
Infinite Flight is a flight simulation app that runs on the mobile platforms. And yes, it is incredible. From detailed flight models, to breathtaking scenery and realism, not to mention multiplayer experiences, playing Infinite Flight is truly something that must be experienced for anyone with any level of interest in aviation.
Today, I sit down with Laura Laban, CEO and Co-Founder of Infinite Flight. We talk about the story of Infinite Flight: how it started, what went into it's development, what unique challenges and engineering went into it, and how it's constantly evolving.
We also discuss the Infinite Flight Community, which is one of the most interactive simulation communities today.
Finally, we talk about the future of Infinite Flight, and some ideas that could perhaps eventually come down the airway....and of course, we discuss Laura's favorite plane.
Infinite Flight has shown the world that mobile devices don't just offer games, they offer entire experiences.
