Navigraph Previews MSFS Navdata

Navigraph Logotype

Over on Facebook, Navigraph has given us a first glimpse of what they are working on for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Earlier this month, Navigraph CEO Magnus Axholt explained in detail what the developer’s plans for the new flight simulator are. He explained that users will shortly be able to use the Jeppesen data provided through Navigraph to use inside their simulator, instead of the default data provided by Microsoft. There might be several reasons for wanting to do this, such as having a more consistent data-set and experience, simply having a more detailed and comprehensive dataset or easier integration for 3rd party add-ons that already use Navigraph data that is available amongst others. In the post shared on Facebook, we seem to be getting our first look at this updated data in the sim. The interface has been updated with a departure and approach selection at the respective airports, and the map is showing an ILS approach into the arrival airport (Yakima Air Terminal, KYKM  in this example). The team did not share anything about how far out the release of this new dataset for MSFS is, but they did share that people can apply to become a beta tester of it over on their website.

Navigraph FMS Data Manager Adds Active Sky XP Support

ASXP Mockup
It's essentially a monthly ritual, where sim pilots hit that "Update" button in the Navigraph FMS Data Manager to keep their navigational data up to date for their next flight. In doing so, the data manager updates all of the (supported) installed aircraft and add-on applications that simmers hold in their arsenal. This month though, Navigraph has made a lot

Navigraph AIRAC Data Now Available For FlightFactor A320

Flight Factor A320 15

The FlightFactor A320 is arguably the best add-on aircraft that X-Plane has seen in a long time, and after finally emerging from a 3-tier buy-in beta stage at the beginning of 2018, the only thing missing was Navigraph’s AIRAC data support.

Understandably, Navigraph has been copping a fair bit of frustration from their mutual FlightFactor customers who enjoy using the current data and charts on their simming adventures. Countless Facebook and posts on various forums asking when support for the aircraft would be ready had resulted in numerous responses amounting to a “soon”, and in some cases some sarcastic responses such as “the end of 2018”.

Naturally, it’s with great relief that we can report that the Navigraph FMS Data Manager now has support for the FlightFactor A320!

You just need to scan your add-on selection with the FMS Manager and then select the FF A320 and watch the magic happen.

It would seem that now is a better time than ever to be purchasing the FlightFactor A320 if this is the single factor that has been holding you back from purchasing.
Navigraph FMS Data subscribers can download the data through the Data Manager now.
