  1. I believe that there is no better planning tool currently available for pilots wishing to plan correctly for longer haul flights. PFPX continues to perform well even after all these years. With the coming of GFO, I shall continue to plan with PFPX for my long B777 flights.

    I accept that if a pilot wants to plan short haul flights then an alternative planning tool might be appropriate.

  2. Hi Tom,

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    I hope that I am not just 'losing it'!

    I have certainly run the AS_PFPZ_V204.exe installer. The PFPX.exe Properties>Details window also shows the File version and Productversion as But the app shows Configuration>General as installed version 2.03 and Available version as 2.04 with the Automatically check for updates box checked. No update was automatically offered.

    What is happening?

    Kind regards, Richard 

  3. Presumably Global Flight Operations will have to maintain aircraft fleets for us to fly. PFPX already has the ability for its users to set up fleets of aircraft for planning flights.

    Will there be an interface to ensure that the separate fleets are kept in synch so that we can check out an aircraft and then create its flight plan without having to try to keep manually maintained records ?

  4. I have installed AS-Mega-Airport-Frankfurt-20_PROF_P3DV5_V2001.zip within P3Dv5. I purchased it from SimMarket.

    After installation I have Mega Airport Frankfurt 20 in the D:\Program Files (x86)>Aerosoft folder. P3Dv5 displays the scenery correctly but without SODE functionality.

    Placing the SODE folder is my problem.

    I have no folder for Frankfurt in my C:\Users\speed\Documents\Aerosoft.

    Can you be more explicit about placing the SODE folder please?

    Many thanks.

  5. Hi Oliver,

    After failing to understand the SODE installation instructions in the Readme.txt file, your instructions above have confused me even more 😧

    During installation, like Michael, I installed into my D drive. I  now have  Mega Airport Frankfurt Professional V5 in the Program Files (x86)\aerosoft directory.

    I have not installed any of my many airport sceneries into my C drive. Why are Aerosoft setting a standard which I am reluctant to follow?

    I cannot find an EDDFConfigTool anywhere on my PC.

    Can you explain, in simple terms, how I can install the SODE program on my D drive?

    Thanks, Richard


  6. With the forthcoming release of the new FSX, there is likely to be a requirement for alterations to PFPX.

    As a long time dependent on PFPX for its advanced capabilities, I am anxious that it continues to be a major player in my long-haul simming experiences.

    Are there any indications that I may continue to be supported by the product in the 'new world'?
