Kinetic Assistant is a SimConnect utility that covers missing simulation or gameplay elements of the Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020). Desktop application read sim variables and return adjusted values (like speed and rotation) back into the game to simulate some specific conditions, uplift inside of artificial hotspot for example. Also it can insert objects into the game, like AI tow planes.

Currently, these features are available: Winch, Tow, Hotspots, Catapult and Arresting gear, NMEA data exchange. All of them have limitations, so please read the description for each below.

* Kinetic Assistant has ALBATROSS competitions app integrated. All flight plans, weather presets and other kind of data related to race events are property of their authors, you are not eligible to republish them anyhow without author approval.

* Fully compatible aircraft:
DG808S (freeware, available on msfs.touching.cloud)
Discus2C (freeware, flightsim.to).

* Partially compatible aircraft: any native or legacy MSFS glider or carrier based aircraft.

* Hotspots data provided by thermal.kk7.ch and maps.openAIP.net services.

Package includes

* EXE application (installed .NET Framework is required)

* Towplane tracks – can be used on any runway, just choose takeoff direction properly

* Detailed PDF manual

* KineticPanel – MSFS toolbar with navigation and quick control buttons (winch, push, tow), spiral and birds for hotspots, animated ropes and winch vehicle.

Key features

a. Winch is the simplest way to get your glider into the air. You can select rope length and elasticity, winch speed, initial acceleration, rope damage and random failures chances.

b. You can replay the existing towplane route or create your own. Or just ask your friend to tow you on his favorite aircraft (but multiplayer towing has limitations). Available settings: connection point (nose, CG, tail), rope elasticity and damage. Also you can ask your crew to push you to the runway (no animated people though), use control device to move and rotate.

c. Simple replay tool to record towplane and glider flights, then replay single aircraft or several at once.

d. Catapult is a perfect option to take off from a small piece of land or aircraft carrier – set initial speed and prepare for launch. Any aircraft eligible for the catapult.

e. Arrestor gear can be used for aircraft carrier landings or emergency landing training on the usual runway. You can use any aircraft, actual tailhook presence is not required.

f. Hotspots are areas with updraft wind active during daytime, which can hold your glider in the air for a much longer time. You can load real life API hotspots or create your own map in LNM. Hotspots can be used together with native thermals (appear under wide clouds during hot temperature) and ridge lift (reflected wind).

g. You can connect external gliding application (like XCsoar) with MSFS by NMEA protocol to receive basic information about the flight – location, altitude, airspeed etc.

h. You can see other pilots, which uses KineticAssistant or ALBATROSS as well, on the world map

i. You can teleport to any selected location/altitude on the world map immediatelly

f. You can install and load any ALBATROSS Racing flight plan with related weather preset and participate in competition or perform training without need to care about best time.

RARA-AVIS SIMS - ZIPPY SPORT MSFS
David
This is an update to my earlier (1 star) review. The developer has now responded to my issue, giving great helpful support and a new file to try. All issues are now fixed and it's a great little product.

This is the best carreer addon currently existing for MSFS. (May 23rd, 2022)
SOUTH OAK CO - FS BIRDS - EUROPE CENTRAL MSFS
Stefan
Very good addon, brings life to the game. At the airport there are always birds sitting around and at the gate there is suddenly a shadow, you look in the air, no is not a plane but a bird (smile). In VFR low-level flight you meet flocks of birds that brings additional life in the air. Very nice to observe when you go on a discovery trip with the helicopter.

Amazing scenery for the price. The models look great. One small criticism is that there is no interior in the terminal.

SIMBITWORLD - A PILOT'S LIFE - CHAPTER 2
Demetrio
It’s the 1st time I review a Sim product. I’m a real life commercial pilot, using the Sim to practice my IFR procedures since training over 10 years. I was hooked with the FSPassenger and since I moved to the P3D4, I only used the Sim to practice some FSLabs A320 procedures, mostly abnormal proc before the real life Sim checks every 6 months :) But with APLV2… I’m back to having this feeling I had in the early days with FSPassengers in FSX. It’s so well thought… I find myself on my days OFF sitting on the computer for hours, practicing new procedures I’m normally don’t in my real job, at random destinations around I might never go to in real life and getting rewarded for it… the feeling of being on the top 50 worldwide -so far-, only makes me want to get to the top 10 ;) and get hired by a 5* I feel with this, the simming days for just practice or for fun without progress in the sim are long gone. Big 5* for me. I hope they continue improving the product adding new features, attracting more simmers to join, that will contribute in making it more challenging and of course, more enjoyable.

One of the most conscientious developer ever. Great job, great scenery!!!
PROJECT MAX - OJAM AMMAN CIVIL AIRPORT JORDAN MSFS

Never expected to see OJAM for MSFS so picked this up as soon as it came out. Really cool little scenery for a great price, and dev is super responsive. Highly recommend.
PORTALFRAME - EL SALVADOR INTERNATIONAL MSLP MSSS MSFS
Eduard
The development of these two main airports in El Salvador is incredible. The level of realism that Monseñor Romero airport has reached in this scenario is so valuable. On the other hand, Ilopango airport with its military operations, training and private operations very well recreated, since FS9 (if I'm not wrong) no one had dared to develop something so valuable for virtual aviation in El Salvador and the world. Excellent job colleagues. I recommend this product 100%.
