This is the platform rewrite promised, currently Windows only, but with builds coming for Mac and Linux soon.

A completely free modern cross platform (soon) Electronic Flight Bag with so much more! Under heavy and rapid development over the last 18 months SimToolkitPro has grown into an indispensible flight simming companion. Reducing system load by consolidating tools, having everything within reach during the flight from up to date METAR, to the latest charts, SimToolkitPro is the all-in-one app for flight simulation.

  • Flight planning and dispatching through SimBrief, with flight and route editing
  • Flight Logbook with archiving of OFPs and route data
  • Airport Database
  • Weather Injection for Sims (XP11 only for now)
  • Detailed Landing Reporting with a "replay" feature
  • Local data storage (with cloud backup soon)
  • Streaming overlay that can be fully customised
  • Camera Director to automate cameras for XP11
  • Landing practice tool (XP11 only for now)
  • Live Map with full FIR data support for Vatsim and IVAO ATC
  • Display of network flights for Vatsim, IVAO, PilotEdge and STKP users
  • Taxi overlay for any airport in the world by zooming in on it (updates to your installed scenery too for XP11 again for now)
  • Windows and Linux plugins for XP11, Mac and Linux Client versions coming soon
  • Custom schedule for saving flights for future dispatch
  • Searchable real world routes database (not super updated but will be changing this soon)
  • Charts pullout tab for Navigraph Charts and ChartFox
  • Support for ActiveSky webcompanion
  • Integrated data recorder will record any landing detected when connected to the sim
  • Import for other services, manual import and fshub.io coming soon
  • Fleet manager with custom airframes
  • Airframe manager allowing fully custom airframes to be dispatched through the simbrief api
  • Checklists with import/export for sharing and an always on top popout for showing over the sim
  • Wind calculator with automated lookup of metar for selected runway

SimToolkitPro is in development and currently needs your feedback to make it more accurate and provide more valuable information when reporting. It is being actively developed and has a discord group for support available from within the software. Feedback will be used to improve compatibility with payware aircraft, usability in general, changes to UI and add features people want to see in this free toolset.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

0.2.10

NEW! Dispatcher frontend for SimBrief

Plan your flights with SimBrief and automatically grab the plan, fuel, weights and charts for the Flight Summary Page

NEW! Always on Top & Mini Mode

Turn SimToolkitPro into an airport sat nav. Select your taxi destination then enable mini mode and always on top from the live map to have a persistant overlay of your taxi! (Don't forget autozoom and follow me!) This only works with simulators operating in Windowed/Windowed Borderless. This will also work with X-plane 11 in Borderless mode by the "Borderless Gaming" app.

UPGRADED! Better Network Flight/ATC Monitoring Network coverage extended to ATC and sectors, including "best guess" updating of network flights in near real time!

  • [NEW] If you encounter a white/black screen on startup/loading you can press "Ctrl + Alt + Shift + R", this will remove the settings profile and close STKP, upon restarting it should create a new profile. This command is active at all time when SimToolkitPro is running.
  • [FIX] Fix for streaming overlay, duplicate output bug for groundspeed
  • [FIX] Plan is now correctly cleared when creating a new flight
  • [FIX] Fix for bug with spaces in streaming (proper fix this time!)
  • [FIX] Fixed inputs/dropdowns and textareas in dark mode to be actually dark..

  • [FIX] Fix for runaway CPU usage bug
  • [FIX] Wind calculator ICAO lookup fix
  • [FIX] IVAO ATC ctr coverage now shown
  • [FIX] IVAO flights now use interp code to show "real time" progress
  • [FIX] Installer will now self elevate (with prompt) rather than expecting to be ran as admin when installing to program files
  • [FIX] Weather refresh command held back by 10 seconds to ensure write completion of all WX files on update. This stops X-Plane WX dropping back to "Clear, Customized" on initial write
  • [FIX] Fixed issues with displaying of some constraints
  • [FIX] Updated interp code for VATSIM test layer
  • [FIX] Fixed map on Network explorer for flights without plans
  • [FIX] Fixed runways not detecting correct when creating a plan (only affected departure rwy)
  • [UPD] New method for deciding which taxiway markings are drawn (will potentially change a lot)
  • [NEW] Added ATC CTR coverage to the map along with connection info
  • [NEW] VATSIM Metar fallback to "fill in gaps" in coverage
  • [NEW] Added selectable cruise profile to flight planner
  • [NEW] Network interp code will not update stationary flights
  • [NEW] Plans will now auto load to summary when created

  • [NEW] Live map will remember position and zoom between modules and sessions too
  • [NEW] Flight waypoint information now displayed for procedues, altitude and speed constraints

X-Plane 11 Changes

  • [FIX] Fixed Extplane compatability - new STKP plugin will be installed
  • [FIX] Landing reports no longer generated from X-Plane 11 Replays
  • [NEW] New plugin checksumming on startup

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

0.2.9

NEW! Taxi Helper

A changelist entry wouldn't have covered this new feature. When zooming in on an airport in the live map view with the simulator connected you will see the new Taxi Helper system. Showing runways, stands and taxiways at all airports with available information. You can select a custom taxi location with the button at the top of the live map, or click a stand/runway threshold to get taxi routing.

NEW! Navdata system supports AIRAC updates

Navigation data is now AIRAC based. While no formally supported by the Navigraph data updater (yet!), you can set it up to update SimToolkitPro navdata. A gif showing this process is below!

Supplied navigation data will be merged with custom scenery for X-Plane 11 to create a cache of data that should be accurate for your simulator, including accurate gates and airports.

NEW! Dark Theme - Enable it Here

If you spot any layout/text visibility issues let me know in the Discord.

This is a lovely software I use to keep my flight records in order. It sometimes fails to recognize a flight, or I forget to start STKP, but no hassle. I can add my missing flights with my flight plans and IVAO tracker. I believe STKP will continue to develop and be an irreplaceable tool for us.
