Recommended Posts

Broadcasting Flight Information to a Secondary Device

For those who wish to broadcast flight information onto a device such as an iPhone, iPad, Android device, or even another PC, you can enable and configure the settings shown below. These settings are accessible under Settings/Miscellaneous Settings.

In order for you to set this feature up to work, you must follow the below steps. Note - This feature requires the use of your LAN (Local Area Network) or Local Network, and a basic understanding of your local network.

1. First turn on this feature. Find Broadcast Flight Info to IP Address and switch the setting to “ON

2. On your secondary device, download the free app ForeFlight or your preferred app that is capable of receiving flight data over an IP network (LAN or Home Network). Note - In this demo we will use ForeFlight on an iPad.

3. Set the Broadcast IP Address to your local IP address range, changing the last part to 255. Note - If the local IP address of your PC is 192.168.2.212, you should set this setting as 192.168.2.255. To locate your PC's IP address, go to your command line (CMD), and type: ipconfig /all.

4. The Broadcast Port should remain the default 49002

5 Insure that your secondary device is on the same local network as the PC that you are running Aerofly FS 2 on.

6. Set up your flight as you normally would.

7. Start the ForeFlight app (or your preferred app). To verify your connection is a success (ForeFlight) click on the bottom tab that says “More”, find “Devices”. You should see a box showing Aerofly FS 2 is connected. Note- You should familiarize yourself with the application you are using. ForeFlight provides you with many free features that work well with Aerofly FS 2.

NOTE! For my Android device, I found the two free apps below worked quite well together providing info for the Usa and Canada.
