Fly jobs, buy aircraft, be your own boss. X-CPL-Pilot to be released soon.

The Windows-only plugin for X-Plane, where you can do all this and more, is coming out in less than one month.


Simmers are always looking for good reasons to keep on simming. Some love the adrenaline of combat simulators; others prefer to fly slow and low on remote regions to bring some goods to camping sites or even offshore facilities.

The truth is that we grab any excuses we can to fly and, very often, our imagination starts to run short.

This is where systems such as FS Economy become handy. But these may be a bit hard or cumbersome. You need to get into their website, then you have to get back into the sim, start the flight, etc.


There are some other plugins, such as Mission Generator, which are cool but developer Tino Nuglisch‎ has decided to go a step forth and build a sort of an FS Economy plugin inside X-Plane.

This plugin will allow you to generate jobs, routes, purchase or rent aircraft, create FBOs and a lot more and it’s designed to be used with GA (up to 20 tons). Hopefully, it will allow us to do some cool helicopter missions (even offshore ones). That’s something I am trying to find out myself and will, obviously, keep you up to date.


Meanwhile, Tino has announced the plugin will be released in 2-3 weeks.

And I can’t wait!
