Parallel 42 Updates Flow with New Features

A set of new features has just been released for Parallel 42’s Flow product for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The biggest new feature for Flow (All) is the new ‘key fob’ widget that enables you to interact with hangar doors and other interactive scenery elements. It has been updated with their FFOX scenery but is open to other developers to work with as well.

In the Essentials and Pro versions of the tool, you will now see a new ‘Info Text’ widget that displays sim data in the top-left corner. Speaking of the Pro version, you will be able to also see a new Streamer Bar, which elegantly shows new sim data. Furthermore, there is now ai_licia support with smarter flight data. There are some other new features and improvements, all detailed in the changelog below.

You can update Flow, Flow Essentials and Flow Pro from Parallel 42’s website now. Other stores will update accordingly.


  • “Key Fob” widget (ALL): Control pre-configured interactive scenery elements from your Flow Wheel. Our updated FFOX (Trent Palmer’s Desert Oasis) scenery will feature fully interactive hangar doors. (If you are a scenery or aircraft developer and want to integrate this Key Fob concept, please get in touch. It’s free and easy to integrate!)
  • “Info Text” widget (Essentials and Pro): Similar to what was available in the FSX/P3D days. This displays sim data in the top left corner.
  • “Streamer Bar” widget (Pro): Show your viewers your current altitude, speed, heading, and more in a customizable overlay. This displays sim data in an elegant way, the way a streamer overlay would be expected to look!
  • ai_licia bridge widget (Pro): Your AI companion for Twitch just got smarter with Flight Data. (Learn more at
  • Dead Reckoning widget (Pro): Navigate the skies like a caveman, with Deduced Reckoning aka Dead Reckoning. This widget provides the essential tools required. Find this in the HUD category. To learn more visit:
