Integrated Simavionics: A Comprehensive Avionics Upgrade for Flight Simulators
If you are a fan of flight simulation games, you may have heard of Integrated Simavionics (ISG), a set of gauges that can enhance your avionics panel with realistic and functional features. ISG is compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator and Prepar3D, and offers a variety of gauges based on real-world aircraft models. In this article, we will introduce some of the main features and benefits of ISG, and show you how to install and use it.
What is Integrated Simavionics?
Integrated Simavionics is a package of gauges that can be integrated with Flight Management Systems (FMS) units as an avionics panel upgrade for flight simulators. ISG includes several types of gauges, such as:
Multifunction Displays (MFDs) based on the look and feel of the MFDs used in McDonnell Douglas C-17 Globemaster III, Honeywell Primus 1000, and Collins Proline 4.
Primary Flight Displays (PFDs) based on the look and feel of the PFDs used in Boeing 777 and Airbus A320-A330.
Enhanced Attitude Direction Indicators (EADIs) based on the look and feel of the EADIs used in Airbus A320-A330 and Honeywell/King EFS40.
Enhanced Horizontal Situation Indicators (EHSIs) based on the look and feel of the EHSIs used in McDonnell Douglas MD80 and Honeywell/King EFS40.
Navigation Displays (NDs) based on the look and feel of the NDs used in Airbus A300-A310, McDonnell Douglas MD11/Boeing 717, and some Boeing models.
Flight Management Systems (FMSs) that work similar to the Smiths FMS and Honeywell/King GNSXLS FMS. They can load stored flight plans, perform multiple holding patterns, direct to waypoints, provide progress information, vertical navigation, standard instrument departures (SIDs), and standard terminal arrival routes (STARs).
A GPS type Master Control Unit (MCU) that can load flight plans, direct the aircraft to fly the flight plan route, and drive some of the information displayed on the NDs.
All gauges listed are included in the package for one price, and work in FS9 , FSX, and Prepar3d ( P3Dv4 ).[^1^]
Integrated Simavionics can enhance your flight simulation experience by providing you with realistic and functional gauges that can improve your situational awareness, navigation, and flight management. With ISG, you can:
Customize your avionics panel according to your preferences and needs. You can choose from different types of gauges that suit your aircraft model and style of flying.
Enjoy a high level of compatibility with various aircraft add-ons. ISG can work with most default and third-party aircraft that have FMS units or GPS units.
Learn how to use real-world avionics systems. ISG can help you familiarize yourself with the operation and features of various gauges that are used in actual aircraft.
Have fun with challenging and realistic flight scenarios. ISG can provide you with accurate and detailed flight information, such as terrain, weather, traffic, airways, waypoints, procedures, etc.
How to install and use Integrated Simavionics?
To install Integrated Simavionics, you need to purchase it from the official website[^1^] or from other authorized resellers. After downloading the package, you need to run the installer and follow the instructions. You will also need to activate your product using a serial number that will be emailed to you after purchase.
To use Integrated Simavionics, you need to add the gauges to your avionics panel using a panel editor program or by editing the panel.cfg file manually. You can find detailed instructions on how to do this in the user manual that comes with the package. You can also find some examples of panel retrofits for various aircraft models on 0efd9a6b88
