New in-flight TFR pop up alerts coming to 20.1

May, 27, 2020 by

Have you ever been in the position where you’re flying into an airport and you forgot to check to see if there is an active TFR at or near your destination? Well you’re in luck. We got an exclusive look at a new feature which will be coming to Infinite Flight in their next update, 20.1, that will send you a pop up alert when you enter a TFR.

As you can see in the picture above, an active TFR is present at over EGKK, which you’ll be alerted of as you enter it’s boundary on the map. The message will advise you of the TFR status, TFR reason, and a prompt to review the message on your map interface. The pop-up won’t disappear from the screen until you tap the message to dismiss it. It can’t be missed!

The TFR will be depicted as a bold red circle on the map which you can tap to reveal all pertinent information like active times, dates, altitudes, and the critical airport notice. London Gatwick’s TFR states that a runway is closed and may only be used for taxiing aircraft! Spanning from the surface to 10,000ft, all aircraft entering the TFR boundary at or below 10,000ft will be prompted to review the TFR message and should adjust their flight accordingly to comply with the notice which is strictly enforced.
