FlyVFR VOICE ATC FOR FS2000 FREE
INTRODUCTORY VERSION RELEASE
FlyVFR, the voice add-on for 2-way ATC communication, has been
updated for FS2000. The first release (filename
FlyVFRIn.Zip) is a freeware introductory version which supports
most features of the upcoming shareware release. See,
FS2000 pilots select their callsign from a list of the FS2000
General Aviation flight models. Flights start where the airplane
sits and you fly from any airport to any airport with 2-way voice
communications during all phases of the flight. ATC voice is
provided by the Wav files included in
Aafwav.Zip (a free download available at this site). Pilot's
Voice Wav files are included, as are complete instructions on how
to record files in your own voice. Background ATC chatter, a
feature of previous versions of FlyVFR, may now be toggled on and
off. At your destination, you can make a visual approach and
landing or contact Approach Control for vectors to ILS equipped
runways. See, "LIMITATIONS," below.
As in FlyVFR Version 2.0, voice ATIS is provided but if you
want a weather report included, then you must enter the weather
data manually. This is because, FS2000 does not export weather
variables to add-on adventures such as was the case in previous
Flight Simulator versions. ATIS reports the active runway and
recites a time-sensitive alpha ID with or without weather.
LIMITATIONS of the freeware. The free introductory version of
FlyVFR is limited in three (3) areas:
Only FS2000 aircraft using default callsigns
may be selected.
Only frequencies provided in lists may be
selected for use.
Approach Control will provide vectors to
runways 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16.
The shareware version (filename FlyVFR2K.Zip) allows you to
assemble a GA tail number callsign (for add-on aircraft) or
configure a VA flight number, enter an exact ATC facility
frequency, and makes all runways eligible for ILS vectoring.
Release date for the shareware is Q1 2000.
