Create/export realistic-looking pilot reports (PIREPs) of your flights in Infinite Flight! Analyze your abilities as a pilot in over 30 different parameters! ACARS-style!
Ever finish a flight in Infinite Flight, only to wish you could have a more objective way to review how you did? Perhaps even an easier way to log this flight report with your Virtual Airline?
In-Flight Operations is a beautifully simple way to create ACARS-style flight reports of your Infinite Flight journeys. It is NOT a flight simulator itself but rather connects to Infinite Flight in the background to gather information about your flight.
As a bonus, In-Flight Operations will let you choose background music based on the current phase of flight you are in! Set "Danger Zone" as your takeoff anthem, or some soothing music as you cruise! It's up to you.
In-Flight Operations is the third In-Flight app by John Goering after In-Flight Assistant (soundscape for IF) and In-Flight Instruments (live instruments for IF)!
**** HOW TO USE ****
Simply start the app, then enter Infinite Flight, making sure "Infinite Flight Connect" is enabled in the General Settings of Infinite Flight.
Optionally, set up background music you'd like to play in the various flight phases of your flight.
Now start your flight report by activating seatbelt & "no smoking" signs while your engine is off (or by starting up your engines if your aircraft does not have seatbelt signs).
Then simply perform your flight from start to finish! Once you turn off your engines (and your seatbelt & "no smoking" signs if you have them), In-Flight Operations will play a pleasant chime to let you know you can now generate your report!
**** PARAMETERS IN THE REPORT ****
Here are the parameters included in your report:
- Departure/Arrival Airport & Runway
- Departure, Takeoff, Landing, Arrival Times in Zulu and local time
- Total Flight Time
- Fuel Usage in kg or lbs (from taxiing to enroute)
- Takeoff / Landing Speed
- Takeoff N1%
- Takeoff / Landing Flaps
- Cruise Altitude
- Final Approach V/S, Speed, Glideslope & Localizer Deviation
- Takeoff / Landing Nose Angle
- Max Bank Angle
- Flight Route, with Speed/Heading/Altitude per Waypoint
ALL OF THIS. COMPLETELY FOR FREE. Crazy, I know. You can "pay" me with a review in the App Store, how does that sound?

Ratings and Reviews
Home Run for IF Pilots
I don’t know why my first review didn’t stick. But this is a must have for all VA pilots and pilots that want to keep their skills up! Having helped design the concept and watching the app come to life-it’s more than I could’ve dreamed so far and we’re only on V1.0!
This app is great and very useful. The only issue I’ve had was adding background music in the app’s settings. I had an MP3 file but I couldn’t figure out if it was possible to add it. From what I can see, you can only add music from your Apple Music library. I found this a bit annoying.
Another great addition for IF
I’m amazed at all the data that can be captured with this app. It’s fantastic and provides great insight into my flying. Makes it super easy to get my virtualBlue flights validated too!
