February 2020 – From X-Plane with Love ❤️

Hello there!

Love is in the air with Valentine’s day this month, so we’re showing some X-Plane love to a wide variety of addons, a new Gateway airport, and a couple of default aircraft. 

RealSimGear + X-Plane

RealSimGear designs and manufactures GPS and avionics controls for use with flight simulator software such as X-Plane. RealSimGear products significantly improve the effectiveness of practice and training at home or in a flight school environment. Lack of deep familiarization with complex avionics is a major contributing factor in many general aviation accidents. RealSimGear products help address this by providing an easy to use and significantly lower cost option to gain familiarity with aircraft avionics.

Together with X-Plane, RealSimGear products help pilots learn and maintain proficiency, as well as create an immersive and ultra-realistic
simulation experience for the flight enthusiast.

RealSimGear currently produces individual avionics component products that replicate the majority of the most common GPS and avionics components found in smaller general aviation aircraft such as the smaller Cessna, Piper or Cirrus aircraft. RealSimGear together with TorqueSim have recently announced the development of a new Cirrus SR22 aircraft for X-Plane that is designed to work seamlessly with its range of G1000 hardware, specifically the Cirrus Perspective Package.
