We've done most of our xplane trainer development using the 172SP model that comes with xplane.  However, we realize that there are a number of you that use different aircraft models.  Based on forum feedback, it's clear that not all of the models integrate with the trainer as nicely as the 172.

So, if you're having problems integrating functions from the IFD trainer with your aircraft model (e.g. xplane won't fly the flight plan in the trainer, respond to trainer radio tuning, etc.), please reply to this post.  Be sure to include the aircraft model that you're using and the developer of the model, along with the specific issue(s) you have encountered.

I can't promise that we'll fix every single one that gets posted back.  But, we'll do our best to address as many as we can.  If we notice that several of you are using the same model and having the same issue, we'll be more likely to look at those first.

This is awesome!! Thank you for developing this Apple App to integrate the IFD simulator into X-Plane. I am using the Carenado F33 Bonanza  F33A BONANZA XPLANE 11 – Carenado

It is not a "stock" airplane to the X-Plane simulator but it is pretty close to what I fly - except for the Avionics of course. It kind of follows the flight plan but it doesn't seem to respond to VLOC approaches and It doesn't look like it responds to radio tuning.

If it would be possible to take a look at this it would be great, but if you are limiting your efforts to stock X-Plane aircraft I understand.

Who doesn't?  But the real question is whether you're able to get your xplane model to work with the IFD xplane trainer :)

Hi Steve,

Thank you so much to your team for this.

I am using the Torque Sim Cirrus Sr22 Entegra for XPlane. I would love this to work with the IFD Trainer since I fly a Cirrus SR22 and dual IFD 440's now.

My x-plane aircraft is the Torque Sim Entegra DFC90 version SR22 na. (same as my real aircraft with an IFD 440 Integra system) In the sim my experience flying using GPSS as suggested in order for procedure turns and holds to work properly (not NAV as trained in the real aircraft for fewest and safest buttonology where the turns and holds do work properly) is a little mixed. I have found during gps approaches when I need to arm the approach at the IA, often some serious wandering can occur so as soon as the Glide slope is intercepted and becomes active I need to switch back to GPSS mode to have a stable approach. Of course this is not how the actual unit works. It would be nice if your code could keep us in nav and  nav /approach mode  throughout the entire flight (with procedure turns and hold operation properly as they do in the real aircraft, and no need for switching. (it is counter to real world training and could introduce a weak muscle memory reaction under real world pressure.)    I assume it must be very difficult to accomplish and laminar may not be open to sharing data that you need.    Another issue  changing from atis  frequency  prior to the approach the flip/flop frequency button malfunctions and freezes.  A relaunch of  the XP trainer app is required  to clear the issue.     I find the app very useful and really appreciate the teams hard work.  Thank you.
