Have your physical FMC

Recommended Posts

The other day someone showed me a very cool app which will allow you to transform your iPad or Android tablet into a fully working FMC which will connect to the FMC in the NGX with help from a small client installed on your FSX computer. You could of course also install the app on your smartphone although it might be a bit tiny.

 

There's a free demo available which will let you try it out at a couple of airports. To be able to use it everywhere you need to buy the full version. The price is a bit steep but IMO totally worth it looking at what it does for your flying experience.

 

You can read all about the app here

I wonder if they offer discounts if you buy more than one cuz I'd like this for my 777,737,and A320. They also have a great looking psyical MCP for sale for $599

Sorry for bringing old news.

 

Anyway I've tried this on a couple of flights now and this is definitely one of the best investments I did for the NGX to date. To be able to physically interact with the FMC although via a touch-screen is nothing short of amazing and for anyone who didn't already try this I highly suggest you do!!

 

Can't help smiling to myself how you always manage to find something new that makes flying the NGX just a little bit more realistic. Guess it's part of the nature being a FS nerd :lol:

Why is it whenever I see an addon MCP for the 737, the digits are always slanted. They aren't on the real thing. Just wondering

Sure, I've been using this for about a year now and you're right, it is fantastic.

Speaking of physically interacting with the NGX and my happiness over this app I can only imagine how cool it must be to have a more or less complete flight deck with MCP, center pedestal, overhead panel etc.

 

I hope I'll one day have the space, money and time to build my own home cockpit!
