With the moving map function, you can easily follow your own aircraft (or an AI craft) every movement. You can see the actual position of where you are in the simulator on Google Earth©, too!
Fully compatible with a separate PC via network link using WideFS, this makes controlling and managing your flights so much simpler. Great for online pilots who want to fully understand the full airspace structure involved. By being able to easily create flight plans with minimal fuss, you can make the planning side of aviation a much less stressful endeavor. You can also create detailed flight plans when on official airways, even forming a database of your own bespoke waypoints.
Everything here goes the extra mile to help improve how you fly. The addition of PACOTs, NATracks, STARs, and SIDs all make planning flights and departures so much easier. If you find this part of aviation management a stressful experience, Flightsim Commander can help you out. It’s a comprehensive planning aid that makes creating and following route segments very easy.
It even lets you look at airport layouts, making sure you fully understand where you are arriving. If you like, you can load up vertical and horizontal approach charts for the runway of your destination. This makes flying easier, safer and more consistent than beforehand.
