FSUIPC, standing for Flight Simulator Universal Inter-Process Communication, is an indispensable add-on that acts as a conduit between flight simulators like Microsoft Flight Simulator or Prepar3D and third-party applications. This tool unlocks advanced customization and control, allowing users to fine-tune flight data, weather conditions, and aircraft systems in real-time.

The new FSUIPC 7 logo - v7 is for MSFS (2020) release.It significantly enhances the flight simulation experience by enabling precise joystick calibration, fostering integration with virtual flying networks, and facilitating the creation of custom plugins for developers.

Beyond just improving control and connectivity, FSUIPC offers detailed data logging capabilities for performance analysis and training enhancement. Essential for both casual enthusiasts and serious simmers, FSUIPC enriches the virtual flying experience by introducing a higher level of realism, precision, and community engagement.

Note: Make sure that when you download this software that you download the right version – this exists for both FS2004 and FSX, and I spent one hour too many trying them both with the wrong version of the simulator in question!

Increase Your Possibilities

FSX has developed so much in the preceding years since it came out that keeping up with all those changes and additions can really be a bit of a nightmare. However, with the help of software like FSUIPC 4.09, you no longer need to find that adding in those extra features and utilities will be so difficult. This basically acts as a radio of sorts for FSX, and allows it to transmit and receive information from third-party applications to give you an even more enhanced level of performance.

There are so many great mods and applications out there that finding quality additions for FSX to improve your flight accuracy or performance is going to be incredibly easy. In fact, being able to use all of the extra mods out there – there are even mobile apps that are built for FSX usage – without having to find some workaround within the game is such a time saver.

Use Every Third Party Mod

I personally found myself turned away from quality mods in the past as they were simply too hard to get working right – this changed everything, though, and makes sure that they are capable of getting through and being understood by the simulator. If you are sick of having to leave behind quality apps for FSX because you don’t know how to get them to translate with the simulator itself, then this is what you need.

It acts as a client that runs in the background and basically feeds FSX the information it needs – this allows you to start utilizing key features such as co-ordinates from Google. This means that all those nifty little indirect inclusions can really help boost the performance and style of your flight simulation experience can be made much easier to use.

Now, full functionality will be included with them and you’ll no longer need to miss out on all the fun that others are having.

So what are you waiting for? Add to your FSX experience for years to come by including this absolutely outstanding new addition to the series, making it easier than ever to feel like a professional!

Hi.  I have been using your site's services and addons for several years now and I always find something new.  Thanks to the site administration.

andrektuckerWed, 05 Jan 2022 07:38:29 GMT

I registered and download the FSUIPC but no activation key. Where and how i can get the key? thanks. PS it was for FSX/P3D.

Cass DormanThu, 11 Mar 2021 12:49:30 GMT

To everyone asking about the registration key, the software actually comes with two sets of functionality.

The first is free. This is the most basic and allows communication with external applications (ACARS for virtual airlines, Little Navmaps, vPilot, etc)

The second is the paid version which includes even more functionality (I won't list features here, but there's a lot). This is the version that is used by people with full-scale simulator setups with separate MFD, PFD, radios, etc.

You can use the free version without registration, and this will be enough for 90% of sim pilots. For those looking to purchase the full version, you can visit Mr. Dowson's website or search for FSUIPC on SimMarket to purchase the full version registration key.

For all those asking, the registration key for FSUIPC is, once again, NOT FREE and requires a legitimate purchase.

Denny SunMon, 09 Apr 2018 15:34:11 GMT


We have an older computer running FSX on Windows XP. All we want is a relatively simple setup to practice flying with this computer sitting in the hangar next to our fullscale Cessna. Got the Saitek yoke, pedals and throttle but just purchased the radio panel and going through all the growing pains. Will this download work with our setup and work with SPAD (legacy SPAD downloaded)?

The version has been updated to 4.955 which includes support for FSX: Steam Edition and the latest Prepar3D.

waly fayeMon, 04 Apr 2016 07:29:23 GMT

themikewilsonWed, 30 Mar 2016 23:54:49 GMT

Does this really work in Steam Edition? I get an error message that it's looking for the Microsoft location for the original FSX - can't find a work around.
