Update 25-Aug-19 @ 15:55: We have reached to Simfest and they confirmed to us the new client for XPilot users will be made available to AFV Beta users later this week. You will need to be accepted but you can request a sign-up here.
Twitch streamer, Chewwy94 has shared the news that a client to connect X-Plane to VATSIM called XPilot has been announced. The news was announced just now is still developing, but we wanted to share the exciting news with the community. This is a developing story and we’ll continue updating as we hear any new information.
The new XPilot client has been in the works by a variety of people including those in the VATSIM development team. The project has been lead by Justin in the AFV team, which is run by Simfest members.
The client is still being developed and this is the first iteration. According to Chewwy94, when he spoke to a developer named Gary, “it’s pretty much finished,” so hopefully we hear more news soon.
If you are involved in the development of this software, please reach out so we can grab any details for the new XPilot client.
