News! - Updated : WebFMC Pro v1.5.2 by Green Arc Studios

 

The excellent WebFMC Pro plugin application has been updated to v1.5.2. This update covers the changes to the SSG Boeing 748i v2 and E-Jets Evolution Series to be active in the application, the earlier 747-8 Series v1.9+ is still supported as well. 

 

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.

 

There are a few notes in that the application will only work in the updated SSG versions of the B748i and E-Jet Evolution via the right hand FMC unit due to limitations of the datarefs (both new version SSG releases now have independent twin FMC access), and any use of the left FMC in popup mode will disconnect the WebFMC interaction with the aircraft (I found in the SSG B747i v2 review inconsistencies when using the left hand FMC as noted in the review, so those aspects are not surprising).

 

In doing the review I really missed this tool massively, it is brilliant to have it back, as long haul routing can be very difficult to input, notably here because of the SSG 748i 20 page FMC input limitation.

My routing details are done on another computer (A Mac 27") and use SimBrief and Navigraph tools...  note that the PLAN routing is done on the right side NAV/MAP SSG display and not the left side as usual....

...  otherwise it is a normal routing operation.

  • SSG E-Jets Evolution Series (both variants, requires v1.4+) NEW!
  • SSG 747-8 Series (both variants; both v1.9+ and v2+ are supported) NEW!
  • Default X-Plane FMC with all aircraft that use it

Still super brilliant and a worthy tool for X-Plane routing...  for WebFMC Pro it is a big YES! from me.

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!

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!
