Plugin Update! : CIVA to version 1.31

Recommended Posts

The Delco Carousel IV-A Inertial Navigation System CIVA which was the main source of aircraft navigation in the early years of jet transport flight has been updated to v1.31.

There was a problem with plugin from X-Plane v11.20 onwards, but the original (v1.10) is still fine if you use X-Plane10 or earlier X-Plane versions. There was a problem in  XP11.10 that disabled the automatic loading of the CIVA plugin.

 

The CIVA could be found on 707, 727, some 737-100s and -200s, the DC-10 and L-1011 Tristar, and on the early 747-100, -200 and -300 variants. And this CIVA has primarily been developed to be used with the 727 series of FlyJSim. It can be installed with any other aircraft like FJS B737, and the coming MD11 from Rotate.

 

The plugin is US$10 here:

 

CIVA Navigation System

 

Features

  • Fully compatible with the 727 Series by FlyJSim
  • Realistic warmup, initialization and alignment procedures
  • Optional Quick-Align to get you flying instantly
  • All display modes modeled, including HOLD modes:
    • It can display ground track, ground speed, heading, drift angle, cross-track error, track-angle error, position, distance-to-go, estimated time enroute, wind speed and direction, along-track acceleration and longitudinal wind component
  • Automatic navigation of up to 9 waypoints
  • X-Plane flightplans can be loaded instead of manual waypoint entry
  • Single-DME updating incorporating DME elevation
  • Realistic position drift and smooth updating
  • Built-in 30-minute backup battery in case of emergency

 

Note the CIVA is installed in the assigned Aircraft's Plugin folder and NOT the X-Plane Resources/Plugin folder...

 

For authentic 60's and 70's navigation the CIVA is highly recommended.
