A brand new Air Traffic Control system is coming soon for Prepar3d. The new utility tool is called FSHud and promised to be a “true manager of air traffic.” The idea of the new tool is for the system to completely manage your ATC interactions in accordance with aviation standards and regulations.
On the FSHud website, the tool is described to be in complete control of the air traffic within the simulator – both on the ground and in the air. FSHud manages all aspects of the traffic flow and communications through each stage of the flight. Each aircraft is managed by FSHud and ensures that there will not be a conflict whilst in the sky.
The FSHud panel is how you will directly interact with the tool itself. You will receive voice commands from the application, whilst you will need to use button control to then respond or select choices presented to you by the virtual ATC. You can input your routing and the system will allow you to fly the route as required, whilst ensuring you don’t get any air traffic conflicts.
FSHud is currently in testing, but according to comments left on the YouTube video by Flight1, it should be released in a few weeks. Speaking of which, you can watch FSHud in action in the demo video below.
We’ll keep our eyes peeled on this one and update you when we learn more. You can also follow the FSHud product on Facebook.
