SimControlX is a sophisticated iPad-based Instructor / Operator Station (IOS) for Prepar3D®, X-Plane and ELITE XTS flight simulators (please review currently supported simulator versions below). SimControlX brings updated iOS platform support, various under-the-hood improvements, a fresh look-and-feel as well as useful new features to its capable predecessor SimControl. It uses Wi-Fi to communicate to the host simulator via custom server software which can be obtained from

SimControlX will enhance your flight simulator experience unlike any other app on the market. This app gives you the power of a powerful instructor station, in your lap!

SimControlX grants users the ability to reposition aircraft instantly, change the wind and weather, fail engine components or instruments for realistic training in your simulator and much more without ever needing to get out of the captain’s chair or interrupt the simulation. This helps make the experience fun again by alleviating many of the common complaints, distractions, and tasks that require navigating through multiple computer screens. SimControlX also makes training scenarios easier than ever to achieve. With the use of instant aircraft repositioning you could, for instance, set yourself up for an approach 5, 10 or 15 nautical miles from the runway or even left or right downwind, as many times as you need or practice engine out procedures with the press of a button.

Very Happy!

I took a chance after reading the negative review, and I’m glad I did. I have a nice sim setup, but I could never practice engine failures in P3Dv5 right at left off and now I can without too much trouble. I can have my wife fail a random engine during rotation so that I can have the amygdala high jack that occurs during startle effect. I own a Cessna 421 and just finished recurrent. I was surprised at what a handful the engine failure after takeoff was, especially at high altitude airports like Big Bear, CA. for example. Although I have over 20,000 hours, it’s mostly (98%) in large jets, so I don’t have the muscle memory of managing 6 levers down low with marginal performance while flying single pilot. My 787 has more performance than the law should allow, even at max gross. This program, although I’ve only tested it once does exactly what I want it to do!!!

Don’t be afraid to purchase it. I haven’t tested it with X-Plane, but it works great with the current version of Prepar3D, which is V5.3.

Happy and safe trails!
