Share your GA aircraft profiles for Pro-ATC/X

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have the following GA planes that they can share their profiles:

 

A2A Cessna 182

A2A Cessna 172

Realair Lancair Legacy Turbo

Carenado Phenom 100/300

 

I notice a few things missing in the Aircraft editor in the latest 1.8.5.0 of PATCX. You cannot set the engine type and a few other things such as engine, fuel, cruising speed, etc... I'm referring to this picture which is from an old version of PATCX.

Does ProATCX work well with GA?

 

I flew GA aircraft the last couple of months when I was a beta tester for PATC, and had no problems at all.

I didn't think it did.  That'd be good news.  Do they have a demo?  Would want to try it before plunking down another 50 for an ATC program.  I have 2 on my harddrive now that are never used.

Well, it does work now with GA but only for IFR. And it only works now because you can select airports without SID and STAR now and because it can vector you to the FAF on airports without a STAR. That's it. (Although that's already quite something). The ATC itself still is geared towards IFR airliners (sort of proven by the fact that there are no GA profiles included) so you can't ask them for flight following etc. Pure IFR and being able to use it for GA is a free (and so it seems accidental) bonus.

 

P.S. The above may sounds a bit negative but (after some initial problems with the new version) I really love ProATC!!!

Thanks for that review Jeroen.  Seems to me that the ATC software is improving...slowly.  From what I read on ProATC/X it's getting better along with the others.
