Aerosoft NavDataPro AIRAC Cycle 1912

Aerosoft released on November 7th a new AIRAC Cycle 1912 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.

More information can be found at the dedicated Aerosoft web page.

Navigraph AIRAC Cycle 1912

Another Navigraph AIRAC (Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control) period starting on November 7th, 2019. Let’s give some background information about the AIRAC Cycle.

The AIRAC cycle was adopted in 1964 and further improved over the years. Key are the worldwide effective dates with 28 days intervals (e.g. 4 August 2005, 1 September 2005, 29 September 2005, …). Effective days are always on a Thursday. It may look indeed like a long period, 28 days, or even 56, but it should be understood that aeronautical information changes, mostly published through so called AIRAC Amendments.

Traffic Global for X-Plane Out Now!

On behalf of Just Flight we’re pleased to be able to announce the release of Traffic Global for X-Plane 11 (Windows version).  It’s been a while coming but we’re now there and the latest in our Traffic programs is available for X-Plane now.

Traffic Global provides high quality animated AI aircraft models in authentic airline liveries and with full 3D sound and lighting and effects. Installation is simple and the software is ready to run ‘out the box’.

Traffic Global comes with 65 aircraft types and over 860 liveries covering most of the world’s airlines. Over 600,000 flights are included by default and these cover more than 3,000 global airports with complex, multi-point, multi-day flight schedules. New or altered aircraft liveries can be easily added and do not require any additional configuration.

Traffic Global loads everything in the background and is usually ready to go as soon as your flight starts. Even with hundreds of AI aircraft on screen and more being simulated nearby, simulator performance is barely affected.

Little Navmap 2.4.4 released

On behalf of Alexander Barthel from Little NavMap we’re pleased to inform you that Little NavMap has been updated to version 2.4.4.

A seamlessly integrated airport diagram displays taxiways, displaced thresholds, overrun areas, aprons, parking spots and more. Use can place airport traffic patterns or holdings on the map.
It supports approach and departure procedures like SIDs, STARs, custom final approaches, offers several automatic flight plan calculation options and multiple export formats like GFP (Reality XP GTN and Flight1 GTN), FPL (Reality XP GNS), GPX, RTE, FLP and X-Plane FMS as well as drag and drop flight plan editing on the map. The program can read the PLN, FMS and FLP flight plan formats. more info can be found at the dedicated Little NavMap page.
