FSXPilot is the world's leading and most versatile autopilot for fixed wing aircraft and helicopters in flight simulation.
This program was started in Orbiter Space Simulation and later ported to the Microsoft Flight Simulator. FSXPilot also works great in Prepar3D, even in the brand new version 2. Especially for you P3D users we have recently (1.37) added support for "the beast" Raptor F22 :-) Currently, we develop for FSX/Prepar3D only, but there are still (old and limited) versions for FS9 available for download.
FSXPilot is freeware. Be warned: After you've learned FSXPilot, you will be able to fly them all and won't go without it ...
After the install, FSXPilot will open in two separate windows on your desktop screen. The main window is for autopilot control, the EFIS window is for navigation. The best way to use FSXPilot is to start FSX (windowed mode only) and later start FSXPilot with it's two separate windows. You can position the FSXpilot windows on your screen wherever you want and save this position as your default. If FSX is in windowed mode you might experience a "stop" of the flight simulator when you click another window on your screen. This "stop" can be switched off in FSX options. FSX full screen and FSXPilot is only possible if you have two monitors attached to your computer.
The next file in the Open Beta 1.5 process was published on January 11 2015.
See download page and the speech recognition support file for changes.
Version 1.5 is one of the most substantial development steps of FSXPilot in recent years.
We implemented speech output and recognition as well as the ability to create your own airport and runway directory from your current FSX or P3D installation. Our first tests showed that mishaps of the past ('bad' landings and unstraight takeoffs) were mostly due to AIRAC incompatibilities. Now that FSXPilot uses airport and runway data derived from FSX directly, runway headings are always correct and GPS and ILS landing coordinates are precise.
We encourage you to test the beta (installs itself in a different directory) and report back with bugs or ideas.
The description how to create AIRAC data from your own FSX installation will follow.
