Simbrief Status Update


Many users of the popular online flight-planning tool Simbrief have noticed that the servers have been under a lot of load lately. An increase in users has led to slowdowns and errors of the tool which were mainly occurring during the busy weekends. This has been visible on the website not only in terms of performance, but also a warning icon indicating a high server load.

To mitigate and prevent this issue, Simbrief is looking to upgrading the web server. This process is currently ongoing, and the website should hopefully be online on the new server by the end of this week. The developer states that no promises can be made however. During the transfer, there might be some downtime.

We’ll continue to keep you updated in the case of any significant changes with Simbrief.
