flight planner

Recommended Posts

Hello
I am using FS X SE and XPlane 11.41
I am looking for flight planner ; in the past I was using FSNavigator for FS9, it has been replaced by FSTramp
FSNavigator was a wonderful tool for flight planning (automatic or manual) and had the capability to fly the flight plan automatically like a FMS/GPS, VNAV LNAV, speed...autopilot until the landing if you wish.
I believe fSTramp has the same capability, but it is expensive (recurrent fee per year).
I have noticed that some other flight planner exist but I am unsure of their capabilities: FS Commander, LittleNavMap, Plan-G.
If you use one or several of these flight planners, could you indicate me:

-which one is performing this functions:fly the flight plan automatically like a FMS/GPS, VNAV LNAV, speed...autopilot until the landing if you wish.
-which one is compatible with XPlane 11.41

thanks for your advises.

LittleNavMap is really good. Lots of detail, live tracking of your flight from outside of the sim, but you can also load the Flight Plans it creates. Ongoing log book. And you can create Aircraft Profiles (a little complex) so it tracks fuel consumption, etc. And it's free.

SIMBrief : you can prepare a flight plan and transfer it to XP FMS or GPS , is it correct? But there is no autopilot function in Simbrief?

LittleNav Map : same questions?

thanks

No, they don't have an AP function. The aircraft normally provides this, not the flight planner. I've seen it in FS Tramp, but it's quite unrealistic to have a map fly the plane, isn't it?

Yes unrealistic but so easy when you spend hours to try to manage XP GPS or FMS ! And want to navigate some minutes !
