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.

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.

PFPX has served me for as long as have been in this community.

Its such an intuitive piece of software that brings my part in flight simulation, real world ops to the next level.

Every single piece of functionality adds to the ever wide variety of options for your flight planning. Sure you cant Profile on VATSIM or trying to create a quick OFP for a flight such as SimBrief. However PFPX makes you slow down, think about your inputs and from what I have used in real world Dispatch Software, its a close replica.

I hope the guys at Aerosoft and the guys over at FlightSimSoft have admired PFPX as I have. It is such a shame that PFPX will leave the market very shortly but its a good thing to know that I will still be able to use it in the future.

I wish PFPX the best of luck in the future, and hope it continues its legacy for what it has and will offer to us is truly unimaginable.

Absolutely love this piece of software. It's very professional and is very accurate! I would honestly be lost without this software. It's a recommended buy! I bought it on Aerosoft's website and don't regret it.

Awesome program! Great for your flight plans, fuel planning, and exporting to nearly every decent payware aircraft on the market. Works off networked PCs and does a great job for me. My only complaint is that is quits from time to time when left open on long flights. This program was essential for me in getting my long haul flight plans as well as flying where flight plans are not a easily available.

If you take your simulation seriously PFPX is the go-to flight planner. The others don't even come close.

The product is just perfect and i used it almost on daily basis.
Short - and medium haul flights are no problem and also long haul flights are planned very easily.
There are dozens of profiles and a/c types avail from aerosoft forums, so extension of my database hasn't been a problem either.
Just can say: Awesome product and awesome job.
Would suggest to everyone to buy it.

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.

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.

TROPICALSIM - PUNTA CANA MDPC 2022 P3D5
Timothy
A particularly colorful airport--and up-to-date--ren-
dered adequately for P3Dv5. With a bit more work, such as some surrounding scenery, or even some blades of grass, this would get the full five stars. Tropicalsim should take a look at some of the atmospheric detail devs for Colombian airports are lavishing on their products at a lower price. Night lighting is okay, although I'm not sure where it's coming from since there are no lampposts! Even so, despite a certain lack of detail, I'm very happy to add this interesting destination for charter tour flights. They included an option for SODE jetways that isn't hard to implement with a bit of fiddling around among folders. The instructions are easy to follow and the results work fine. I'm also very happy to see a dev still supporting P3D. Look for my L1011 parked right in front of the original part of MDPC, with the thatched roofs and no jetways.

Overall, the details of the airport are still great, and I give it five stars.But the night runway lights and papi lights are not made and hopefully will be resolved in the next update.

Wonderful scenery! So close to the real one and so many details. Very happy of my purchase ????
SNOW PALM STUDIOS - SPS-8 Q4NG MSFS
Justin
I am happy that this developer has taken this project because the Q-400 is one of my favourite aircraft's. As a casual simmer, I am enjoying flying this plane. That being said, there are a number of things that need to be addressed like graphic and texture issues and updates to the speed and flight handling. The plane was release too soon before it was ready in my opinion. Also worth mentioning that this is not a complex aircraft with fully functioning cockpit, if that is what you are looking for then I would look the other way. If you are a big fan of the Q-400, really want one in your sim and not worried about spending $20 bucks on a simple aircraft... then It might be worth taking a closer look at. I do think in time with some updates and fixes that this aircraft could be great for the casual simmer and I am hoping my purchase will help support further development of this aircraft.

At the beginning this Airport was beautiful but now it needs an urgent update, everywhere white/grey ground textures, seems not compatible with the latest sim or world updates. Ple-
ase fix this!
SPINOZA - LAUSANNE LSGL MSFS
Alain
A really nice work, with many lovely details, like hangars doors open which allow to see aircrafts inside. Those who know La Blécherette, will recognize the very old typical hangar, with its metallic armature. The restaurant in wing form, is also modelized, including the transparent glasses. There is also some other landmarks around the airport, like the new football stadium. The agricultural farm, in the border of the runway, which was transformed in some very horrible buildings by MSFS, are now fully modelized in details, including a tractor and the farmer! You can choose between 3 helipad, near the REGA building, if you are helicopter pilot. Final-
ly, you have a lot of nice night illumination.
MK STUDIOS - CORK MSFS
Markus
Quite nice airport scenery during the day, good modelling and texturing throughout. One item that is unfortunately typical for MK: The two localiser antennas present are not modelled in 3D and thus are visible as blurred flat things on the aerial imagery. Disappointing for something that you overfly on every approach. These localiser antennas are rather generic objects. Model them once, then use them on all the airports you produce, how hard can it be. The night lighting is another star lost with issues that could have been avoided easily with a bit more quality control: The ATC tower is inside the flood lighting area of the light pole in front of it, meaning even the top of the tower is well lit at night which is just totally unrealistic (and the tower model being rather low-fidelity in both modelling and texturing doesn't help there). Also the hotel building behind the terminal has got atrocious night lighting textures: All its windows are lit as if there's a thousand suns shining inside the building, which is again totally unrealistic and distracting for the night scene because it's quite a large building. Wi-
th these 3 issues resolved the scenery would have a much more natural and immersive look to it.
