XAirports is a utility app that allows owner's of the popular flight simulator "X-Plane" to easily set COM and NAV radio frequencies and autopilot parameters while flying. This avoids pausing the sim to look up, memorize, and enter frequency data, as well as to fiddle with virtual knobs.

XAirports is also a database software, containing over 35.000 airports available in X-Plane, plus associated ATC, ILS and VOR objects.

XAirports provides a moving map and displayes the player and AI planes as well as all database objects.

Last but not least, XAirports can also display, save to disk and print PDF airport charts (SID/STAR) from a variety of publicly available sources.

Essential X-Plane Companion

I have been flying with XPlane for a few years now. During that time I have experimented with most of the available enhancements to XPlane. One of the best I have found is X-Airports. This is a small application that works in tandem with XPlane to provide essential information about airports and flight tracking as you complete a route. It does not interfere with the XPlane functionality in any way. In fact it enhances it by providing needed information about where your aircraft is and what you can expect at departure and destination airports. One of its best features is the ability to select airport radio frequencies and send them to your X-Plane radio with a mouse click. No need to fiddle with the sometimes awkward XP radio interface. A recent upgrade also includes local high and low-level navigation charts. This app works as a stand-alone Mac application and as an iPhone/iPad app. If you’re looking for an essential XPlane utility I would rank this at the top.

Great APP

I love this APP, I use it all the time. If there was only one thing that I would like to see included would be a weather overlay on top of the map… The PERFECTION.
