Sim EFB for Microsoft Flight Simulator provides an easy user interface to create/store flight plans with associated screen grabbed maps and charts for your next flight or bush trip.

Moving maps
Your plane position can be animated by simply defining two known points on the screen grabbed map/chart with a back-up world map with aeronautical data.

Your own NavLog and Notes
You can build your own emulated MSFS Navlog in minutes, displayed outside or within the simulator.

A 'must have' for VR pilots
In the Virtual Reality flight or multi-screen environments, Sim EFB comes into its own. Now you can have up to three panels arranged in your cockpit to display flight plan notes, maps and charts you have created, in one of the three separate windows. Next time you come into land in MSFS, you no longer have to break that first-class immersive simulated flight to look at an approach plate.

Sim EFB - Manager
The management software allows you to quickly create a flight plan, from ICAO Code, current MSFS flight Plan or .PLN file. It then looks up the basic airport information, or if the airport information is already in the Sim EFB database then this would be used. The search features allow a quick Google search for information to add to your flight plan. Notes are then entered, plus any screenshots of any chart/map, using the built-in screen grabber, so you have electronic access to these while in flight. Sim EFB also files the flight plans in a structured manner to aid later retrieval, with export to friends with Sim EFB installed.

Features

  • Moving maps/charts - defining two known points on the map/chart, using the tools provided, will allow Sim EFB to animate your current position on an airport map, VFR map or Departure/Arrival plates.
  • Quick flight plan creation - at a click of a [Search] button find sources of map/chart information. Press the [Grab] button to screen grab a map/chart for your sim flight plan. Create a simple flight plan in MSFS.
  • Simple or structured flight plans - use for just displaying maps/charts or simple flight plan text, with the option of adding collapsible sections. By defining each leg of the flight, Sim EFB will calculate the Speed and ETE time based on wind conditions entered.
  • Keep organised - organised by category and departure airport. All airport information is kept in common storage, so the next time you fly from the same airport, all your notes, maps and charts are added to your next flight.
  • Open PLN files - import flight plans saved by MSFS or the MSFS current file plan.
  • Database of airports and runway details - having selected a departure/arrival airport, Sim EFB will look up the airport details, listing runway length, heading and COMMS/NAV info.
  • Share flight plans - at the click of a button, flight plans, with maps and charts, can be exported in a compressed format to other Sim EFB users.
  • FPS friendly - in our extensive tests, we have found very little impact on FPS.
  • Virtually ANY image within the VR immersion - display any image grabbed from the clipboard to display approach/departure charts and maps.
  • World map - a world map is provided with aeronautical data, thanks to Open Street Map and OpenAIP for those places where you don't have your own map/chart.
  • Teleport - simply double-click on the world map to teleport to any location.
  • Three panels in or out of game - the three panels can be arranged in your virtual cockpit to show vital flight plan notes, charts and maps, both within the MSFS VR world or in MSFS panels running on other monitors outside of the sim.
  • Create your own bush trip - create your own bush trips not locked to weather, plane etc.
  • Create your own flight maps - grab a map image, draw on it using your favourite drawing app and paste into the Sim EFB manager, or use Little Nav map, Sky Vector or SkyDemon to produce a fabulous map to easily show in the simulator.
  • Stopwatch - a stopwatch is provided in Panel 1 for timing the legs of a VFR journey.
  • Notepad for VR pilots - Sim EFB panel 1 has a notepad, allowing a VR Pilot to scribble notes using the mouse.
  • Easy to install - download and install. Just leave open while in MSFS.
