NEWS! - Plugins : WebFMC Pro for X-Plane 12 Released!

 

Green Arc Studios have released the WebFMC Plugin application for X-Plane 12. This highly useful tool is a must have in using a remote Web browser to input data into X-Plane 12 aircraft.

The WebFMC is a plugin that allows you to use a FMC (Flight Management Computer) on an external screen via a web browser. That is an another computer or tablet. So it is a remote tool, but a very beneficial tool and even a powerful one in programming in route and performance data and following the set aircraft route in flight and in mirroring the aircraft's built in FMS (Flight Management System). Added into the functionality is a load of features in the use of the FMC on another screen....  and so yes I am a huge fan.

 

This X-Plane 12 Application is an "Upgrade" and not an update, so you will have to repurchase the application to use it in X-Plane 12, even then it is great value, and covers your plugin and service updates for the run of the X-Plane 12 version. But for previous users there is a US$10 off offer to upgrade to the X-Plane 12 version.

 

Green Arc Studios note:

"X-Plane 12 is still in Early Access stage and therefore WebFMC v2.0.0 should be considered a beta version. Note that supported aircraft list is a bit shorter compared to XP11 edition and consists only aircraft that currently support XP12 and that we were able to test":

 

  • Default X-Plane FMC DualCDU
  • FlyJSim Q4XP DualCDU
  • Toliss A319 DualCDU
  • Toliss A321 DualCDU
  • Toliss A340 DualCDU
  • FlightFactor 757 v2 Professional DualCDU
  • FlightFactor 767 Professional DualCDU
  • FlightFactor 777 Professional
  • FlightFactor A320 Ultimate DualCDU
  • FlightFactor A350 (old style MCDU)
  • Rotate MD-11 TripleCDU
  • Rotate MD-80
  • IXEG 737-300 DualCDU
  • X-Crafts ERJ Family DualCDU
  • JarDesign 330
  • SSG 747-8 Series v2
  • Zibo Mod 737-800 DualCDU

 

"Other than that we introduced look&feel variants for following default aircraft that use Default FMC":

 

  • Laminar Airbus 330
  • Laminar Cessna Citation X
  • Laminar McDonnell Douglas MD-82

 

"Please be also advised, that due to technical reasons, around the end of 2023 we will be forced to drop support for oldest web browsers that we still support now (eg. Safari on iOS 9.3.5, which is iPad 2). See "Requirements" tab in the store product page for more details on our web browser support policy".

 

Although the current list of supported aircraft is far lower in X-Plane 12 than currently in X-Plane 11, which is an impressive 25 aircraft, that number will equalise as the compatible aircraft are updated (upgraded) to the X-Plane 12 platform (free of charge). I also expect the default aircraft Demo (again free) to be also available to X-Plane 12 users try out the application.

 

X-Plane 11 will be supported by Green Arc Studio's for the next 12 months, but a decision on forward support of the X-Plane 11 platform will be held at that point in time (depending on X-Plane 11 releases). Obviously the plugin will still continue to work in X-Plane 11, but no future aircraft FMS's will be added to the application.

Access CDU / FMC of select X-Plane 12 airplanes via any modern web browser running on your PC or mobile device over local network.

 

Quick and easy access to the FMC
Get easy access to the FMC: quickly edit the flightplan, monitor flight progress, set up your approach and do all the typical work of the pilot without having to move around in the cockpit, even if the plane doesn’t support FMC as a popup natively - on the same PC, or different monitor, tablet or phone - in fact you can use multiple displays at the same time!
 
Make pilot tasks easy and comfortable
Enjoy external views during cruise while monitoring flight progress on separate screen or take a quick look at your phone to verify calculated landing speed with just a glimpse of an eye during busy time on approach. Make flying complex SIDs / STARs easy as you can focus on the important flight parameters while having overview of the constraints all the time. Take your mobile to the kitchen as you cook a dinner during a long haul and never miss T/D again!
 
Convenient to use
Use physical keyboards on PC with extra keys such as Prev/Next page mapped to keyboard keys for easy access. WebFMC scales dynamically to fit any display or window size and can look as native app on mobiles by using browser's "Add to home screen" feature.
