SimToolkitPro Updated to 0.6.60

Logbook

SimToolkitPro utility has received a major update on January 18th. The team had indicated in later December 2020 that they were in the process of testing the new version before final release.

The new changelog is extensive. Among the new features there is now a “friends” function, a new online profile, a brand new sync engine and a timer based data check in case the sims looses connection with STKP. An important improvement is a new documentation center which is located here to make sure all users make the best use of SimToolkitPro. A good number of fixes have also been implemented. You will find below a summary of all new features and changes.

SimToolkitPro is an all in one electronic flight bag that provides a lot of functionalities. For example, it can find you ideas of real world flights through a search engine which allows many filters. It can also help you visualize online traffic and ATC if you are flying on a network such as VATSIM or IVAO, which actually replaces the need for another program. STKP also includes a flight planning software and is also able to import flights Prepar3D through other flight planners such as PFPX or Simbrief. There are much more features, most of them being summed up here.

SimToolkitPro is entirely free and relies on donations. It is compatible with FSX, P3D, X-Plane, MSFS and can run on Windows, Linux and Mac. You can get it on the SimToolkitPro website.
