Thread: FlightSim X navigation software

  1. #1

    Question FlightSim X navigation software

    Hello FlightSimmer's,

    I just made the Transition from FS2004 to FSX and i was wondering, what FREE Navigation software is there for FSX? i mean FS2004 has things like VASfmc and FSnav which you can download for free, but what does FSX have? i need it because i do alot of online flights on VATsim and alot of the aircraft i have dont have FMC's, so could someone please give me a suggestion to what there is.

    Thanks,
    Minniyer

    "Thats a VFR planner, im looking for a IFR planner "

    Golly, I didn't know that! I use it for IFR planning all the time. If I'm doing an online flight with a few other pilots I run it on a second pc, so that I can watch our progress - IFR or VFR. For IFR you just need lotsa clouds.... and some nav stuff, like a pair of vor rx's, an adf, maybe a dme and autopilot. - In fact - if you want you create the fp in PlanG, export it to FSX, where you can use it with your favourite Garmin or KLN gps unit. PlanG is an excellent - and free - addition to the sim.
