Navigraph Starts Navdata Update Beta Testing for MSFS

The well-known Jeppesen charts provider Navigraph has started beta testing their navigational data update tool for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Navigraph quotes two reasons that resulted in this tool. First, because of the many missing or erroneously coded data in the MSFS default navdata. And secondly, users enjoy working with and are used to work with the Jeppesen data, provided by Navigraph.

Navigraph Navdata updates the default MSFS AIRAC  to version 2010, valid from September 10 to October 7. An AIRAC contains the airports with their departure, arrival and approach procedures, navaids and enroute waypoints. Also, additional VFR waypoints have been added to the simulator. Next to adding missing airports like EDDS and ZBAD, and ILS procedures for LIRF and others, Navigraph specifies updating over 7,700 VHF and 3,300 NDB navaids, almost 71,000 enroute waypoints, over 1,300 markers, and even more than 13,000 airports in this update.

The navdata provider also refers to a YouTube video by Navigraph CEO Magnus Axholt, stating that “the constant update of the virtual world [in MSFS] is great news for IFR pilots. Finally, they’ll be able to fly as real as it gets, and this will make their service more important than ever.”

More info on how to improve navigation in your sim and future updates awaits you on the Navigraph website.

Update Sept. 11: All Navigraph users are free to download and test the new application, by visiting this webpage.
