The X-Plane Air Plugin
In order to use AirFMC (and AirTrack) with X-Plane you need to install a small
piece of software in X-Plane called a plugin.
This addon interacts with X-Plane, its different planes and FMC systems by
putting all relevant information on the network and by receiving specific
commands from apps and feeding them back to X-Plane.
Just download the plugin and copy one of its .xpl files to the
"X-Plane/Resources/plugins" folder. Which file to copy will depends on your
operating system and X-Plane version; see the INSTALL.txt file for details.
If you previously had an AirTrack plugin installed, please note that the
new HSAir plugin is a universal package that works with both AirTrack (version
3.7 and above) and with AirFMC and replaces the previous software.
Hence you will need to upgrade AirTrack to
3.7 or above and you will need to delete any previously installed AirTrack
Also note that even though you may be running a 64 bit OS like Windows 7 64
or OS X, your version of X-Plane may be 32 bits so you might need
the 32 bit plugin file. All versions of X-Plane 9 and 10 below 10.20 are 32
That's all, you don't need to configure anything else, just launch X-Plane
and your flight should show up in AirFMC and AirTrack.
HSAIRXPL-4.5.2.zip - The latest plugin for X-Plane and all its 3 platforms, Mac, Windows and Linux in 32 and 64 bit formats.
The plugin is based on the X-Plane SDK available at
In order to run it you will need a computer with a valid copy of X-Plane 9 or 10
and a wireless LAN network which connects your computer to the iPhone/iPad/iPod device(s) on the same subnet / segment.
AirFMC for OS X
We have just ported AirFMC to OS X so if you have a Mac you can try it before
you buy the iPad version. Functionality is the same although needless to
say the iPad version is much more fun to use.
For the time being the OS X version is free.
If you enjoy it and own an iPad, consider purchasing its on the app store to
encourage further development.
Download below, click and go. You still need to have the HSAIR plugin installed
in order to use it.
