vPilot, a utility used by virtual pilots to fly on the online network, VATSIM, has been updated to version 2.6, which is compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator.
vPilot is used to enable a virtual pilot to communicate with virtual air traffic controllers and other aircraft, all over the world.
Private beta testers have been putting the client to the test with the new simulator but there has been an issue highlighted after the beta testing had finished. When certain types of SimConnect applications such as vPilot are running with the sim, it sometimes creates frame rate reductions and stuttering for the user. The team at vPilot has notified Asobo and Microsoft who are currently investigating the issue.
If you already use vPilot, you will receive an update prompt the next time you open the client. If you are a new user and would like to join the VATSIM network using vPilot and MSFS, you can find the download on the vPilot website.
