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.

  • 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.

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.

ROLAND LABORIE - VOUGHT CRUSADER F8-E MSFS
Kent
External model is beautiful...my major beef is that this airplane is ridiculously overpowered. So here is my list of things to make this airplane get a 5 out of 5 stars: - Get engine/flight model parameters correct...not even close currently - Add visual AB effect - Make the default be NO external stores - Add a paint kit - Add a an RF-8A or G variant ...a-
nd BOOM! It's a 5/5.
FLYTAMPA - LEGACY - COPENHAGEN FSX P3D3
Ian
Overall another excellent scenery from FlyTampa - great quality textures. A couple of technical issues noted. Unlike their LOWW scenery, the EKCH configuration gives only two options for runway operation. This should probably be based on wind direction on a given day, especially with those of us that use some type of real weather software. Also, I find it quite hard to believe that runway 22R would be used for arrivals with the final approach being made over the apron/gate/term-
inal areas. A more realistic set up would be using 22L for arrivals and 22R for departures.
BRSIMDESIGNS - ERCOUPE 415C MSFS
T
Went 3 stars because I love the Ercoupe so much I'm still flying this a lot, even though it's got very annoying problems. 1. The external model is absolutely beautiful, canopy may be a little oversized but not bad. Internally it's nice, but the viewing angle of the dash is strange, as if it's pointed toward the co-pilot. 2. rudder pedals, not sure if this is a limitation of the game or if it's even possible to tie in rudder controls with the yoke to match the missing pedals. By the way, in response to another reviewer here, it depends which one you have whether it has pedals or not. The one I've flown does not and all steering is by the yoke. I think ground steering is still the yoke even when one does have pedals, but can't swear by that. 3. Window fixes as mentioned in reviews would be nice, opening animation, partial opening, etc. Likewise custom call signs would be nice. 4. Feels very overpowered, but that can depend on what engine one has in it I suppose. 5. Cowl and even tail shaking with engine vibration is overboard. and 6. This is the big one I'm really here for... as mentioned by others, please fix the floating! This does feel like a glider, even at 40 knots. The Ercoupe I've flown sinks quickly, and does not bounce like mad once you're on the ground. And doesn't want to squirm all around once you're on the runway. Sure, there's no flaps, but the Ercoupe has a ton of drag with the design, wheels out, and double tail. Although it does feel stable, even a bit too much on stalls. You do feel some stall motions irl, although it really is remarkably stable even in that situation. Not trying to be nit picky, I love that BR Sim made this available and am very thankful! Even with my gripes I'm a little obsessed with this mod. If I could have anything fixed it would be that floating/glidin-
g issue for landing.
WINGSIM - MWCR, OWEN ROBERTS INTL AIRPORT P3D4
Ruston
A solid product - certainly a significant step above default scenery or typical freeware. Th-
ere are some issues to note: 1) The photoscenery is low definition. It doesn't look genuinely good until about 5000 ft AGL. Though it makes for a nice initial stage to approach in a passenger jet, maintaining immersion into the lower stages of the approach would require much more in the way of hand-placed 3D buildings and vegetation. Some is included, but not enough to dispel the "flying over a blurry carpet" sense that photoscenery produces at low altitude. 2) The photoscenery has some clouds and "sunken" cruise ships in it. Those familiar with photoscenery know that this is not uncommon with Caribbean locations. 3-
) The lawn surrounding the main terminal flickers noticeably when taxiing or overflying it. 4) Hand-placed trees ended up in the water in several places south of runway 26. In spite of these issues, there are also some nice touches, such as the animated flags and dolphins. The 3D objects are well-crafted for the most part. They took the trouble of creating a night-lighting effect on the photoscenery for evening flying, and the tarmac water and night-lighting effects look quite nice as well. Though I'd probably have felt a bit disappointed had I spent the 17 Euro full price on this purchase, the sale price is very reasonable. I'll be watching to see how this developer progresses, as there is definitely promise here.
RARA-AVIS SIMS - ZIPPY SPORT MSFS
David
This plane is completely unflyable, as it is not compatible with the new (increased torque) prop physics in MSFS SU9. Regardless of the payload, fuel and CofG settings, the plane will tumble forward onto it's prop (and cannot be recovered) as soon as any throttle is applied. The developer needs to completely reconfigure the CofG config, to account for the new prop physics. I have reached out to the developer, and if the plane is fixed and becomes actually usable, I will update this review.
COCKSPUR - AEROPRAKT A22-LS MSFS
Michael
I have a real one of these aircraft so was eagerly awaiting for an MSFS 2020 sim version. Well, here it is. I love it! The one supplied is a 'glass' cockpit and therefore different to my factory(2014)la-
yout but the rest is there. It flys like the real thing. Has the great visability that the real one has and just like the real one, its a dream to fly. I praise this highly. Rega-
rds. Mike
INDIAFOXTECHO - MB-339 - MSFS
Thilo
For the price you pay you get a very nice aircraft with some nice liveries. Flig-
ht dynamics feel really nice to fly but who does really know how it should fly! Only a real MB-339 pilot could tell us. But fore sure a nice ac to fly around in MSFS.
JUSTFLIGHT - HAWK T1/A ADVANCED TRAINER MSFS
Thilo
Top aircraft with very nice paints and cool configuration tool inside cockpit. Flys very nicely even I am not a Hawk pilot who can really assess it.
SIM SKUNK WORKS - LOCKHEED FRF-104 G STARFIGHTER MSFS

Clickspots are very difficult and do often not react. But model itself is nice.
MEX HIGH FLIGHT - GMMX MARRAKECH MENARA INTL AIRPORT MSFS
Guy
Great airport which I owned previously when using P3D. This MSFS version looks and runs very well, and it's an interesting new location to fly to/from. Very pleased to see this scenery ported over and I hope the this developer, or others, brings new locations to this part of the world.
