Integrated Simavionics

Recommended Posts

Has anybody purchased the package from Integrated Simavionics? It looks like a nice deal, and I'd love to sweeten the panel for the default Lear 45. I have the PMDG 737NG and the Dreamfleet Baron 58, and flying anything without advanced avionics is just boring anymore!Any reviews or advice would be great!

You can purchase this without even having seen it before and with closed eyes. Simply a must for any serious simmer interested in flight management.Andreas

The only problem that I have with this package is that the database for approaches is limited. I believe (I could be wrong) that most ILS approaches are there, but non-precision approaches (VOR, RNAV, GPS) are not. You can design them yourself, not really hard, but it's tedious. This is the only reason I don't use this any more.If things have changed, I would welcome the information, and possibly start to use it again. Otherwise, as the previous poster has said, it's a very nice package.Rick

Been thinking about buying this one myself, since I spend so much time in the Tinmouse II and RFP 742, both of which seem tailor-made for this upgrade. I see that Ernie even includes panel config mods on his site for these and other popular planes.Think we've got a deal! :DJohn G.

Guys, two questions to the owners:1. Can you update the AIRAC?2. Is the FMC aircraft-dependant (I mean ZFW/GW/Fuel calculation)?Best regards,Rafal

I agree with all the previous posters. This is a great product. If you are going to design your own panels, you will need FS Panel Studio. I also use FS Build to make it easy to make Flight Plans. You can make your own Flight Plans and save them, without FS Build. I have not got the programing down to place the buttons in the VC yet (working on it). Avsim has a good Review about this product. http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/187773.jpg

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but won't these gauges work only with standard autopilots? or do they come with their own AP?As for what's more boring: typing an automatically generated route and watch as the computer follows the white/magenta line; or dealing with navigation on your own using other means, is a matter of personal preferences.I opt for the latter.....

they work using the standard autopilot,which is a beauty,because planes you could not fly before using an fmc can now be flown using it.as fun as it may be to program an ins,or fly using vors,the flying using Ernies gauges is fun as well.not to mention the fiddling to install them in your favorite panel.as i said,can't go wrong,it is a really great package.also,there's quite the library of panel.cfg's already.cheersJP.

It does work on some non-standard autopilots (ex Dreamfleet 727, CaptainSim 707/757, F1/Coolsky MD80, Ready for Pushback 747).The retrofit page on the website gives a good overview of the types of aircraft it would typically be used in. Basically the default aircraft, most freeware to mid-level payware models. Those are the type of models we felt people might be interested in retrofitting it with this type of add-on.Regards.Ernie.

I just bought it this weekend, mainly to give my PMDG 1900D a new set of much needed avionics. I have always wanted some decent avionics for that plane and this package fits the bill wonderfully! I have only tried it with the 1900 so far but I look foward to adding it to more of my addons as well such as the Eaglesoft CJ1. Now I dont have to wait for Eaglesoft to release the FMC package for it.
