PMDG 737 + FS2Crew + "Flight Operations Center"?

Recommended Posts

Is anyone using these three products together? I have the first two, and am thinking of buying FOC - but no very little about the program.What does it add in terms of capabilities that FSBuild and FS Navigator don't have?ricardo

Ricardo,FOC is a professional tool thus very precise. The flightplans it produces are nearly as complex as the real ones.

Paul, www.danur.comRicardo, FOC is indeed very complex and it takes a bit of time to figure out some things. I have the feeling that it is better suited if you have a number of routes that you regularly fly and use the tool to perform flightplanning with the current wind data. If you

FOC looks fantastic, but I get all the same info from our VA's dispatches.

Here is the link to Flight Operation Center: http://www.danur.com/main.htmand here is a snapshot of the first page you are confronted with when you open FOC:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/103281.jpgThis program is more a dispatcher than a flight planner. In my opinion this is the best dispatcher available for the flightsim community I have seen sofar. You still need a flight planner like FSBuild at least to convert and export the flight plans to your preferred addons. Be aware the learning curve of FOC is very steep if you want to use it professionally. The manual are almost non existent and there is no dedicated forum I know of. Furthermore navdatas for this product are AIRINC 424 based making the updates costly. It is my understanding that DANUR will provide updates on a subscription basis. I guess the perfect combination of planner/dispatcher programs would be Flitestar + FOC + FSBuild.Note: I am not affiliated in any way with any of the products I mentioned above.Michael
