SimControl App for iOS to Control FSX/P3D/X-Plane Released

In a bid to keep improving and changing flight simulation, development team Azure Computing has a new mobile sim app available. SimControl is a multi-purpose solution that makes creating training scenarios that are worthwhile easier than ever before. Android users, sadly, will need to wait; at present, this is only available on the Apple Store for iPad devices. This is a must-have for those who are looking to manage flight simulation controls and organization more than ever.

Florida-based firm Azure has created a useful enhancement for those who are looking to get more from their simulation experience overall. By helping to offer something that no other mobile flight sim app can, SimControl makes it easier than ever to be in control of your simulation.

Now, you are able to easily re-position aircraft to implement hardware fails and change the weather. This makes it easy to put on bespoke training programs and to test your mettle in moments of crisis. If you find it too had to make these circumstances apparent during a flight, SimControl makes taking control easy.

It ensures that you have total control over the scenario, allowing you to adjust every aspect of your flight simulation experience. By adding extra challenge as well as getting rid of navigational nightmares that hampers simulation, this authenticates the entire flight simulation experience.

No more distractions or navigational journeys that take longer than the flight. SimContol not only gives you total command; it allows you to make major changes on demand.

You can leave behind the frustration of having to suspend your flight to change airports, the weather or force failures. You can even change aircraft and/or liveries mid-flight. By simply using a synced tablet, you have more control than ever before. Total control has never been so available in simulation!

The Finest Training Archive

Another major part of using SimControl is the propensity to up your training intensity. It makes it easier than ever to put together comprehensive training scenarios of your choice. With an instant change to just about everything, you can set up a course to try and overcome. From trying to stop a crash in daring conditions to practicing landing procedures from short distances, you can do everything you desire.

If you want to push yourself to new limits and see how you could improve as a pilot, this makes that easy. The sheer volume of options allows for easier, more methodical training that provides results. Trying to recreate the same scenario 10 times in a row is nearly impossible normally. This makes it far easier to try and perfect certain limitations in your aviation skills to become a better pilot.
