California Airlines ( is pleased to announce the first version of their FMS plugin for X-plane.

It's a simple tool that allows you to program your FMS via your keyboard, allowing quick creation and manipulation of flight plans.

It harkens back to the glory days of the early XSquawkbox betas, which had a similar feature ;) This is similar, but adds a few extras (such as per-waypoint altitude assignments).

It's available only for Windows at this time, but we hope to have a Mac build inside the next week.

The plugin only accepts the first 5 waypoints when being used with non-California Airlines aircraft, serving as a demo to attract people to join our airline.
