GPS Approaches now Allowed

July, 10, 2020 by

The new update has taken navigation in Infinite Flight to new heights, it is now possible to fly a GPS approach with ease! With the 19.4 update in December, GPS approaches weren’t possible anymore but now they are back!

To fly a GPS approach all you have to do is the following.

  1. Tap the airport
  2. PROC (Procedures)
  3. Approaches
  4. Select an RNAV Approach
  5. Add to your flight plan

Here is legend you can use to see if the approach you are selecting is an RNAV approach.

Then sit back and watch your autopilot do the rest. The published GPS approach will allow you to follow the lateral and verticle assignments specified in the approach via VNAV.

When ATC is active, you can now request a GPS approach. If traffic allows they will approve your request and you can continue as filed. The controller will verify you have a valid flight plan then clear you for the GPS approach when you are at an appropriate altitude. Remember, vectors issued by ATC override any procedure you are on.
