The VAS team released yet another public test version (2.0 alpha 7) of vasFMC.  As many people were hoping, this release also contains the MS FS2004 gauge version plus customized versions of the Project Airbus A319 and A320 models including the vasFMC gauge integrated into the Ken Mitchel Airbus panel.

Additionally there is also a great new HTML documentation available for vasFMC 2.0. Its not fully complete yet but nevertheless a must for the new release.

As of 2015, FMC has become one of the most useful tools on the independent, freeware market for simulation fans. If you are not sure why you might want to use this software, it provides you with some very high-end and simple uses that can help you understand the real nuances of flight simulation.

Real world aircraft all fly with specific equipment that allows you to fly on a direct route from A to B; literally from any point on the planet to another. They are different to typical ground navaid networks and provide you with a different way of following the system than VOR radials, much like previous editions would have allowed.

With the help of this mod, you can now make use of this system directly in FSX – you just need your GPS system. Whilst the original FSX GPS is limited and mediocre with regards to its features, this modification changes that entirely.

Instead of following on from something different to real-world procedures, this adds another much needed layer of realism to bring the whole thing together in style. It’s this depth of precision that makes the entire progress and process of the flight simulation using FMC so much more effective.

This is usually the kind of feature that you would get from buying an extensive, pro add-on system. Instead, you get a totally freeware system that you can start using today at no extra cost. This is something that lets you finally start utilizing official airline routes to follow that usually meant you needed software like VATSIM or IVAO to get the most of. Now, you have total and utter control over your flight and how it is going to handle moving forward.

If you want to fly virtually any plane, you can now use these features to make flights more powerful, more effective and more accurate than ever before. It really will ensure that you get a much better quality of flight and also that you can get used to making the most of the same equipment that the professionals use.

 Installation is nice and simple, and you just need to know what you are looking for in each section of the aircraft to make the most of it. With so many features and extras to pick from, though, you should have no problems whatsoever in locating the right way forward for your flight style.

Should you have wanted to become a more serious simulation fan then this is the easiest way to do so. It adds one of the most important modern flight tools to the table without reducing or removing anything else, ensuring that you can stay on track and make your flight targets a possibility without having to go too far down the other route.
