Does XP 11 support SID / STAR in flight plans and work with ATC?

Recommended Posts

Does XP 11 support SID and STAR?  If so, how well does it work with built in ATC?  I am thinking of buying it, but it is unclear.

 

If it does, I assume it is also possible to update the AIRAC?  Which planes support entering SID, STAR and approaches in the FMS/FMC?

 

Sorry for the questions, I did google it but could not find anything that also answered the ATC question.

I was wondering about this too... especially when flying with the default planes such as the 747... I wanted to know if the FMC is limited, since it's not a custom FMC.

XP11 does have SIDs and STARs and they are updatable as well. However, the ATC seemingly remains unchanged from XP10 so unless you specifically type the waypoints of your SID and STAR into your filed flight plan, you won't be assigned or given them by ATC.

I strongly suggerst that you should download the demo and check all do you want.  Performance, Flight model, Visuals....

Like in MFS world, you should check the Product page of each Aircraft...X-plane default airliners also support SID/STAR (default FMC supports it).

Can the XP plugin XFMC be installed in XP11 ? 

 

Is it compatible with all 3rd party and default planes ? 

 

Is it worth ?

 

Thx

Thanks.  So far the demo looks good, I have not used X-Plance since version 9.

With the new default FMC you don't really need XFMC in XP11. Like uFMC I have always found it a bit temperamental anyway.

Thanks everyone, I just bought it!  Last version I have was the DVD of XP 9, so I purchased 10/11 and am happy with it.
