Pilot2ATC on FS2?

  • Hey all,

    Been a while since I have been here. Some of you may know that I have been working on a Cessna style cockpit using 3 monitors. I have it working on a different sim pretty well. I like the graphics (with the exception of clouds), and performance of FS2 better though.


    I tired for a while to get FS2 working with it, but did not have much luck, especially lining up the front and side windows properly. I am now using a new larger main monitor, and may have more luck, but have not tried yet.


    I see that AirManager supports FS2, that is a must. Another must is Pilot2ATC. After getting the bugs out, I don't think I can fly without it any longer.


    Anyone have any experience with Pilot2ATC that might have an idea to make it work?


    One thing I was thinking was maybe running the other sim in the background, with the lowest settings possible so it does not hit the FPS much, use it for position data at least, then run FS2 for the actual flight. Not sure if it will work, but an idea.


    Brainstormers needed to help me figure something out. :)


    Here is one of the latest videos of the sim, I am pretty much done with it.

  • The SimInnovations Wiki says that Air Manager works with AFS2 as of version 3.4. I have not tried it yet however.

    Sure enough. And not one peep out of IPACS. Strange indeed. I'm off the see if mine works. I have had it turned off since flying in AFS2 Thanks.

  • I was following Airmanager support for AeroflyFS2 and you'll find several postings of mine in their forum on the subject. The reason was, I don't think AeroflyFS2 will ever during my lifetime support my Saitek Flight Instrument Panels, thus I thought having gauges on e.g. a tablet on my hardware panel might be an alternative.


    However, as far as I understood, while they do support AeroflyFS2 as such, none of their panels (either Community or Premium) is acutally usable with AeroflyFS2, as the latter doesn't provide enough variables over the interface.


    I'll be gladly be proven wrong, though, as I already bought Airmanager in expectation of working tablet panels for AeroflyFS2.


    Kind regards, Michael

  • Hello Michael,


    Good to hear from you. I have been anxiously awaiting Air Manager support from IPACS, but, like you, I feel like we are just pi$$ing in the wind. I have Air Manager ver 3.4 on my iPad but, haven't heard anything from the IPACS side. I just sent a PM asking for help.

  • Well, that would be a real bummer. Like I said, I have not tried it yet. I was pretty excited to see that SimInnovations said it was supported. If it is not supported, no need to figure out a way to do Pilot2ATC. :(


    Michael, I found some of your posts on their forum. Nice simulator you have there!

  • That statement in their Wiki has been there for quite some time, I think for more than half a year. There was a longer thread on the topic which you can find here

    (~August 2018). The statement about lack of variables by Ralph, a developer, which I referred to is here:

    (might need login).


    Edit: I would still be excited to see AeroflyFS2 supported.


    Kind regards, Michael

  • When I looked a little deeper on the iPad ver 3.4, in the drill down selections under Settings/Air Manager/manual flight simulator > FS2 is not one of the choices and something has to be checked. XP, FSX, or P3D. duh.
