SimPlates brings you the world’s largest collection of real-world IFR approach (and other) charts for the serious
flight simulation enthusiast to your fingertips! SimPlates is not a flight simulator program in and of itself, but can
be used as a companion on your android tablet or phone-type device concurrently with your enjoyment of your preferred
computerized desktop flight simulation program to help expand the realism and excitement of the experience. SimPlates
has been called "a must have for the serious flight simulator enthusiast" and "a great addition to your flight sim bag"
by major flight simulation websites in independent reviews.
YES! THIS IS THE "ULTRA" VERSION OF SIMPLATES - UPDATED WITH MORE PLATES, MORE AIRPORTS, AND MORE UP TO DATE INFO FOR THE SERIOUS FLIGHT SIMULATOR PILOT THAN EVER BEFORE!
The basic way that you use SimPlates is just like pilots from those flying small Cessnas to those flying the largest Boeing and Airbus airliners do every day. As you virtually approach an airport on your computer, bring up its corresponding plates in the SimPlates app. Use the plate as a guide in flying the approach to landing - just like a real world pilot would. SimPlates is useful for virtual pilots of many desktop flight simulation programs, including Flight Simulator (all versions including FSX, FS2004, and MS-Flight), X-Plane, and more.
While SimPlates are real-world plates, they are NOT SUITABLE FOR REAL WORLD FLIGHT OPERATIONS and MUST NOT BE USED FOR REAL WORLD FLIGHT OPERATIONS OF ANY SORT, PERIOD. As SimPlates is intended for flight simulation entertainment use, the plates are not kept up to date with real-world aviation changes (worldwide subscriptions for real-world current data cost thousands of dollars per year from other sources). However, for serious flight simulation entertainment use, the massive collection of plates represents incredible value and capability.
SimPlates includes over 70,000 real-world IFR plates, including approach plates, SIDs/STARs (Departures/Arrivals), Airport Diagrams, Approach types include ILS, VOR, VOR/DME, NDB, LLZ, SDF, GPS, TACAN, Helicopter and Visual. With so many plates, SimPlates provides very good worldwide coverage. For most countries and major airports of the world, if you are looking for a plates, SimPlates will likely have it. However, the coverage is not universal—due to our agreements with the aviation authorities that have allowed us to present these plates for you in a highly cost effective package, some areas are covered in more detail than others (nearly all plates in the USA are covered, for example). You can get a general feel as to what is covered by visiting http://www.dauntless-soft.com/products/simplates/airportlist.asp.
Supplemental features include an integrated WORLDWIDE Airport/Facilities directory ana a worldwide NAVAID (Navigational Aid) directory. For major airports in the USA, preferred routing tables are provided in the airport information section
Simplates' friendly interface makes it easy to find exactly the plate or information you are looking for quickly. As the totality of plates exceeds a whopping 6gb, the plates themselves are not included with your initial download from the AppStore. Rather, they are downloaded on demand when you select them in the program – this generally takes but a few moments per plate, but does require you to be online. Any plates you have downloaded into SimPlates remain on your device (unless cleared) so that you can continue to use them even while offline.
