DEVELOPER FlightSimSoft

PFPX - Professional Flight Planner X - is a new and innovative flight planning tool developed by real-world pilots and dispatchers. It’s a valuable and realistic addition to your flight simulation experience enabling you to create professional quality flight plans similar to those used by real-world airlines.

Take your simulation to the next level!

A user-friendly interface helps to easily build flight plans in a few steps. Advanced options permit realistic flight planning with sophisticated features like Long Range (EROPS) and Re-Dispatch Planning. The printable Flight Briefing Package includes real-time weather and wind charts as well as NOTAM, METAR and TAF reports. Planned routes can be exported to various add-ons like Airbus X Extended, PMDG 737 NGX, 747, MD 11 and Captain Sim 757/767.

PFPX comes with a large aircraft database ranging from Airbus and Boeing types to smaller airplanes like Citation and Cirrus. An open source file format allows simple creation of new aircraft types. Regular navigation database updates are available for realistic route planning.

A sample Flight Briefing Package can be downloaded here.

  • User-definable individual fuel planning rules
  • Real-time METAR/TAF and NOTAM download
  • Accurate up-to-date Upper winds
  • Graphical, zoom- and pan-able world map
  • Printable flight briefing package
  • Plan via North Atlantic Tracks (NAT), Pacific Track System (PACOTS) and Australian Organized Track System (AUSOTS)
  • Automatic, manual or advanced route building including SIDs/STARs
  • Route export function to various add-ons
  • CFMU flight plan validation

General:

PFPX uses several types of data to provide real-time information directly into the program. These data are collected from various sources, processed and formatted by our servers and automatically distributed to your local PFPX device. These data are: Winds, METAR, TAF, Tracks and NOTAMs.
Providing this up-to-date real-time data produces quite a large amount of server data traffic.

Server Subscription:

Beginning with the initial activation, a (free) server subscription for 365 days is automatically configured. After this period, the subscription can be extended by purchasing additional server subscription time.

What if my subscription expires?

If you elect NOT to extend the server subscription, PFPX will still be fully functional, but without real-time data such as Winds, METAR, TAF, Tracks and NOTAMs. Other sources, like ActiveSky and RealEnvironment Extreme and your saved weather data and tracks will still be functional! You can elect to extend your subscription at any time, even if it already has expired!

To fully take advantage of all the features we recommend an active internet connection.

    The flight planning aspect of this program is good. It is a good advance over older softwares for planning your regular routes and saving them for later.
I would suggest that the claim here of a 'large database of supported aircraft' is an exaggeration. Many common aircraft have no listing to be able to plan fuel, and it is even worse if you try to integrate it with Topcat to get take-off and Landing data. I would encourage the vendor to specifically list supported aircraft prior to purchase.
It is not practical for average simmers to create brand new aircraft types.
If you fly anything other than the most popular boeing, I would suggest you check forums to see if your aircraft is supported. The planning side only is probably not worth the price. You will want the fuel planning aspect too.

    Agree with other reviews. Most of my fleet are Captain Sim airplanes, so it was unforgivable to advertise Captain Sim support specifically, then fail to provide it in the actual product. As a flight planner, it is good, and quite complete -- perhaps over-complicated for the average user. But the dispatch function, including fuel planning, that is such a big feature is a bust. A black eye for an otherwise well-regarded company.

    Gross false advertisement. There is no aircraft database. The database is created manually by using one of the very few templates provided. I'd guess less than 5% of aircraft commonly flown. It is unethical for Aerosoft to rely upon sim community reviews to get an accurate assesment of an overpriced product. I'll create 1 or 2 aircraft profiles for now and won't renew the real-time services. Don't buy it until it provides basic functionality commensurate with other less expensive planners.
