FlyWithLua Updated to v.2.7.37

Our Update March 3rd, 2023 | Official FlyWithLua NG X-Plane 11 version 2.7.37

At X-Plained we’re very pleased to inform you that, in consult with X-Friese, we are able to offer you his latest FlyWithLua NG (Next Generation) for X-Plane 11 plugin from X-Friese. As X-Friese is always saying ….. the FlyWithLua story is going on!

This is the official brand version of FlyWithLua NG for X-Plane 11, and, the same as for the previous version, it will no longer support X-Plane 10 or X-Plane 9. All X-Plane 9 users (are there any out there?) must stay at FlyWithLua 2.4.x and follow the instructions to convert FlyWithLua 2.4.x into X-Plane 9 mode.

Going forward NG will be the only developed FlyWithLua version. Support will generally be a community effort. And of course the official brand new version of FlyWithLua NG is running on all three platforms, Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. Thanks a lot to Sparker for making this possible. Without him, FlyWithLua would be a Windows plugin only.

You can grab your personal copy via this download page, but you need to be a registered simmers to be able to download it.


FlyWithLua for X-Plane 12 Updated

We’re pleased to offer you on behalf of the developer the released of an updated FlyWithLua for X-Plane 12. This is the official NG+ (Next Generation Plus) Edition of FlyWithLua for X-Plane 12. Going forward NG+ will be the only developed FlyWithLua version. Support will generally be a community effort. This is an updated version of the famous FlyWithLua. The current version for X-Plane 12 is 2.8.8.

Something is going wrong?
Carefully read the Log.txt file and let FlyWithLua write a debug file, if one of your scripts fails. If you want to ask for help, please use the FlyWithLua help forum and add your Log.txt and FlyWithLua_debug.txt files.

If you are using the Complete Edition, you will get help from the community. I will not support this version, but a good qualified question typically gets an answer in a few hours. So don’t be shy to ask (after searching for your issue fails).

Honeycomb Aeronautical Charlie Rudder Pedals

On behalf of Honeycomb Aeronautical we’re pleased to share with you the following news.

Honeycomb Aeronautical is excited to announce the launch of pre-orders for the highly anticipated Charlie Rudder Pedals, the latest addition to its line of high-performance flight simulation equipment.

The Charlie Rudder Pedals are designed to provide pilots with the most realistic and immersive flight experience possible. Featuring a durable aluminium construction and all new innovative belt drive system, the pedals provide a revolutionary experience when it comes to feeling connected to the aircraft’s flight controls. Using the latest generation of magnetic Hall Effect sensors, the pedals have more precise coordination in flight and minimize over correction and are fully adjustable to fit any pilot’s needs. With the high friction surface strips and deployable carpet spikes included, unwanted slipping will be a thing of the past.

Complimenting Honeycombs current products, the Alpha Flight Controls XPC and Bravo Throttle Quadrant, the Charlie Rudder Pedals are compatible with PC & MAC as well as Xbox Series X|S when using the Alpha Flight Controls XPC and Honeycomb Xbox Hub.

“We are thrilled to finally offer the Charlie Rudder Pedals to our customers,” said Nicki Repenning, CEO of Honeycomb Aeronautical. “These pedals are the result of extensive research and development and are sure to take flight simulation to the next level. We can’t wait for pilots and simmers to experience the realism and precision that these pedals bring.”

Pre-orders for the Charlie Rudder Pedals are now open and can be placed exclusively on for $349.99 with shipping for USA customers only and delivery set for June 30th. For our EU and global customers, delivery will be available on August 30th and can be purchased through our global retailer network.

Utility Review | JF X-Plane Traffic Global

On behalf of Paul Beckwith, X-Plained.Com is pleased to inform. you that we published Paul’s in-depth review of Just Flight Traffic Global for the latest X-Plane version 12. Traffic Global is a plugin that is designed to populate your airports and airspace with varying types of commercial, military and general aviation aircraft without a significant reduction in performance or frame rates. These aircraft add a level of depth and immersion to the simulation environment especially if your flight is not taking place in a multi-user environment.

The aircraft follow realistic flight schedules based on actual airline schedules to enhance the airport environment such that it becomes more engrossing. The plugin can be as simple to use as install and watch the aircraft populate your environment, or it can be as complicated as creating custom liveries for the aircraft generated by Traffic Global.

According to Paul “JustFlight’s Traffic Global is a rather unique addition to that world and is currently one of two such products available for X-Plane 12. Its sole purpose is to add AI aircraft to your simming world at a frame rate cost that is much lower than adding a large amount of X-Plane’s AI capable aircraft to your environment. Just Flight Traffic Global has lived up to its promise and does, in a very satisfying way, solve that problem. My world is now full of active and inactive aircraft that behave in a mostly very realistic manner and add the sights and sounds of a busy airport to my flight experience. I especially appreciate its attention to general aviation activities since that is where I spend the predominant number of my flight hours.”

Navigraph AIRAC Cycle 2213

Another Navigraph AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) period starting on December 29th, 2022. Let’s give some background information about the AIRAC Cycle.

In aviation, an Aeronautical Information Publication (or AIP) is defined by the International Civil Aviation Organization as a publication issued by or with the authority of a state and containing aeronautical information of a lasting character essential to air navigation.[not verified in body] It is designed to be a manual containing thorough details of regulations, procedures and other information pertinent to flying aircraft in the particular country to which it relates. It is usually issued by or on behalf of the respective civil aviation administration.

The structure and contents of AIPs are standardized by international agreement through ICAO. AIPs normally have three parts – GEN (general), ENR (en route) and AD (aerodromes). The document contains many charts; most of these are in the AD section where details and charts of all public aerodromes are published.

AIPs are kept up-to-date by regular revision on a fixed cycle. For operationally significant changes in information, the cycle known as the AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) cycle is used: revisions are produced every 56 days (double AIRAC cycle) or every 28 days (single AIRAC cycle). These changes are received well in advance so that users of the aeronautical data can update their flight management systems (FMS). For insignificant changes, the published calendar dates are used.

In some countries the AIP is informally known as the Airman’s Manual or the Air Pilot.

Aerosoft NavDataPro AIRAC Cycle 2213

Aerosoft released on December 29th a new AIRAC Cycle 2213 for their NavDataPro.

For operationally significant changes in information, the cycle known as the AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) cycle is used: revisions are produced every 56 days (double AIRAC cycle) or every 28 days (single AIRAC cycle).

NavDataPro users are now able to download and install the datasets for X-Plane. NavDataPro is our new update service for navigational data used by various simulatorsWith this service flight sim pilots will always get up-to-date navdata for flight planning and in flight use.
