SOUTHBURY, CT April 2, 2014 -- FltPlan, the largest flight planning service in North America, is now integrated with Laminar Research's X-Plane 10 personal flight simulator software. Pilots will have an enhanced X-Plane experience with the same tools they would be using in the air. In addition, pilots have the ability to practice at their own pace on the ground using FltPlanGo for iPads.
With the simulator integration, pilots can use FltPlanGo with X-Plane 10 to fly routes, obtain up-to-date airport information and terminal procedures, view their position and flight data on FltPlanGo maps, just as though they were using the same device and FltPlanGo in their actual aircraft.
"It's important for pilots who don't fly often or those who have been away from flying to practice workflows and procedures. This integration between FltPlan and X-Plane is a great way to do that in real time environments," said Sarah Wilson, Principal/Director of New Technologies at FltPlan.
X-Plane, the world's most comprehensive and powerful flight simulator for personal computers, was designed to help pilots of all skill levels refine and maintain their skills by practicing actual procedures, maneuvers and scenarios while combined with an electronic checklist. Pilots can see their simulator location on FltPlanGo's moving maps and charts.
Since X-Plane 10 works wirelessly with FltPlan, pilots can fly X-Plane 10 and test features including real-time weather, a new ATC system, new autogen scenery system providing beautiful scenes and realistic buildings, and breadcrumbs that leave a trail on the screen to show where the user has flown. With X-Plane, a pilot's simulated coordinates are sent directly to FltPlan Go, positioning the moving maps to your location in the simulator.
