New version: Updated installer and auto-update functionality along with chart downloaded changes to support browser updated security measures. FS Flight Builder is a utility for general aviation flying that will build flight files for FSX (flt), FSX Steam Edition (flt), and Prepar3D (fxml) based on waypoints and other data either entered manually or imported from SkyVector using the Plain Text Link information. Among other things, you can select your starting position, aircraft, and VFR or IFR flight plan. One of the most interesting features of the application is that it will include a Briefing file, added to the aircraft's built-in kneedboard, that will include departure and destination airport information (runways, frequencies, weather, and charts) as well as navigation frequencies along the route. Have you ever started up flight simulator and wondered “where do I want to go today”? The new Destination Chooser functionality can help to solve that problem. The screen allows you to enter your departure airport and choose various parameters for your destination (like min and max distance, tower availability, ILS availability, runway length requirements, etc.). How to install: Run Setup.exe and simply follow the installation wizard. When you run the application for the first time (make sure your flight simulator is not running), it will build the database from your flight sim data. Be patient. It could take a few minutes. It will attempt to locate your flight sim folder and flight plan folders automatically. If it can't find them, however, you'll need to select them from the options menu. IMPORTANT! Because FS Flight Builder saves to your Flight Sim directories, it MUST be run in Administrator mode. To do this, right-click on the desktop icon, select the Compatibility tab, and check the Run as administrator checkbox. IMPORTANT! The airport and navaid databases for FS Flight Builder are built using Peter Dowson's excellent Make Runway utility and the equally excellent BGL2XML utility from ScruffyDuck Software. The links to these utilities are below. They must be added to the main FSX or Prepar3D folder. Peter Dowson's website: http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.html ScruffyDick Software website: http://www.scruffyduck.org/bgl2xml/4584282773 It's also important to note that Version 1.7 of BGL2XML is required for Prepar3D V3 and higher.

Among other things, you can select your starting position, aircraft, and VFR or IFR flight plan. One of the most interesting features of the application is that it will include a Briefing file, added to the aircraft's built-in kneeboard, that will include departure and destination airport information (runways, frequencies, weather, and charts) as well as navigation frequencies along the route. Have you ever started up flight simulator and wondered “where do I want to go today”? The new Destination Chooser functionality can help to solve that problem.

NpC4FSX&P3D (NumberPadControl) is a more efficient (and more convenient to set up) version of a similar program called NumberPadControl that I wrote a few years ago and which to my surprise PC Pilot magazine included on their 100th Anniversary edition Freeware CD. With NpC4FSX&P3D you assign keys to functions like Com, Nav, Heading, Course, Altitude, VS, Autopilot functions, etc., and then can enter the associated values just by typing on the keyboard’s numberpad instead of fiddling with elusive mouse click spots. NpC4FSX&P3D is programmed primarily for aircraft with avionics that were developed within standard FSX programming guidelines but also supports third party add- on aircraft such as the Flysimware L35A and MU2, PMDG 737NGX / B777, Flight1 King Air B200, A2A Cherokee 180, and also works with GPS units like the GTN750. Setup manual included. A registered (payware) copy of FSUIPC is required.

Landing_Params is a Lua script for FSX/P3D that displays landing parameters in a small text window that pops up after the aircraft has landed and reached taxi speed. The script should be activated with a key or button (like the gear down key/button) during the approach to landing. Parameters displayed in the window at touchdown are Indicated Airspeed (IAS, Kts), Ground Speed (GS, Kts), Landing Distance (LD, ft), Landing Roll (LR, ft), Vertical Speed (VS, ft/min), Attitude Indicator pitch at touchdown (AI), and Bounce Count (BC). Data collection begins when the a/c passes through a radar altimeter determined threshold altitude window between 45 and 55 ft (i.e., the nominal 50ft threshold height). In addition, more detailed landing parameter information may be logged. A registered copy of FSUIPC is required to execute the Lua script.

Kneeboard Viewer 2 (KV2) allows the user to open one or two ‘on-top-windows’ to view programs of choice, such as a web page like SkyVector, or a pdf reader for approach charts, in ‘kneeboard windows’ on top of FSX/P3D/X-Plane. The kneeboard windows may be sized and positioned as desired, and will stay visible on top of FSX/P3D/X-Plane while you fly, or may be toggled on and off (shown or hidden) by user selectable keys (or key combinations). There is also an option to control both kneeboard windows together as a unit with a single key. KV2 works in window or full screen mode with FSX/P3D/X-Plane. KV2 was developed as a possible replacement for the PDFkneeboard program which, unfortunately, does not currently work in the latest versions of P3D. However, KV2 does not depend on FSX, P3D or X-plane in any way, and in fact can be used as a general ‘window-on-top’ type of utility. Al Klayton

A utility for generating model rule sets for vPilot. Can automatically detect and scan the installed simulator(s) (FSX, FSX:SE, P3D 1, 2, 3, 4) or be pointed to a specific directory (for example, a third party model set). Log output records which aircraft.cfg files were found and scanned, how many models were added to the rule set, and how many were not added due to being unable to match to an aircraft type or airline.

Detailed user manual included. For each aircraft control surface selected, AxisViewer will show the position of the joystick axis attached to the control surface, and the actual position of the control surface according to FSX/P3D. The benefits are: * Positive feedback on Control Surface Position. Ever ask yourself "Self, just what is that autopilot/autothrottle doing, anyway?!" * Allow you to manually adjust the Axis Positions to match the Control Surface Positions, so that you don't get a nasty surprise (for example, sudden change in thrust) when the autopilot and/or autothrottle is disengaged. * Verification of joystick functioning and range of motion. * Clear indication of when "dead zones" are entered. You will see the Control Surface Position "snap" to a particular value as the Axis Position approaches the dead zone. Version 1.4 adds an installer, and options for appearance. See the user manual for details.

Detailed user manual included. Contains two functions that are useful for ground-based operations: * Pushback. Allows user to control a pushback, and receive visual feedback regarding speed and turn direction. * Taxi AutoThrottle. Works similar to an in-flight autothrottle, but meant for taxiing. No more fiddling with throttle controls to find that sweet spot! Throttle levers are uniformly and smoothly operated. No more fiddling with throttle controls to ensure uniform thrust! Version 1.3 adds an installer, and additional options for appearance. Please see the user manual for details
