There's actually a major PFPX update coming!

Recommended Posts

This is not a drill, i repeat, this is not a drill!

PFPX is getting its first major update since about two years, bringing SIGMET overlays and enroute wind analysis. Not much know about other features though, but i'm glad to see that develpment hasnt ceased for PFPX. Now if only a certain other well known addon from the same company would finally receive some love....but i may be putting too much hope into this one

Simbrief does most of that for free if I am not mistaken.

How can you mention one without mentioning the other?

I use Simbrief now all the time, but with the update coming, I may bring my PFPX off of the shelf and dust it.

Simbrief is alright. But I can't stand their OFP formats, the fact you can't set an proper max auto payload, use different reserve fuel policies etc.

I'm glad to see an update to PFPX though. Looking forward to it.

Theyve been trying to sell pfpx  to commercial operators for a couple of years under another name. 

A mate of mine trialled it for at his airline. They liked it but went for Lido instead.

Pete's comments reflect how customizable and accurate PFPX really is.  I have always maintained that with a carefully created PFPX profile it is entirely possible (not permissible) to flight plan an actual 747-436 to the far reaches of the globe and arrive with appropriate fuel remaining.  I appreciate the ways PFPX can be tailored to MY desires.

SimBrief is a wonderful and free option, but my choice remains PFPX.  It is always GREAT to have a choice. I too look forward to PFPX's evolution.

This is good to hear - as far as customisation & integration with aircraft go, PFPX is hard to beat.

PFPX is really good if you know how to use it properly. Really a must have imo.

I've really become a huge fan of Simbrief over the past few months, but I love PFPX and news of this update is very welcome.  I'll more than likely be going back to PFPX but it's no bad thing to have two options.

It was either PPS or flightkeys but I forget which one is PFPS re branded for commercial operations...from memory is very very similar to pfpx... i could be wrong
