Pilot tools - AeroSors

This pages presents several tools developed for pilots by Hervé Sors.

The following tools have been developed by Hervé Sors and are freely available, along with many others, on the website www.aero.sors.fr 

Navaids

The NavAids project is intended to update the flight simulator radionavigation beacons  (VOR, NDB) as well as, for the European zone, ILSs, intersections, airways, runway identifiers, lights and ground markings to match information published in the aeronautical documentation in force.

Updated files are available on each AIRAC cycle change.

Current version: AIRAC 1906; 23-May-2019

The RadioAids project includes a set of patched * .bgl files. An executable software ensures the installation, the backup of the initial files and the possible uninstallation.

The different organisation of FS9 and FSX / P3D radionavigation aids requires specific updates for each version of the simulator:

The revision history is available here.

Geographical coverage and installation information are detailed in an included pdf file we recommend you read thoroughly.

An update of the ILSs, runway identifiers (and some other airport data in the US) for regions outside Europe is also available here for FSX / P3D.

Adacalc

Adacalc (Advanced aeronautical calculator) is a utility that can accurately calculate a huge amount of aeronautical quantities including:

  • Atmospheric parameters
  • Speeds according to altitude and temperature
  • Wind components (en route and on a runway)
  • Routes and distances
  • Holding circuit parameters (with entry)
  • Unity conversions
  • ...

Tiny Flight Tracker

The Tiny Flight Tracker is a program that allows, via FSUIPC modules (FS9, FSX, P3D) or XPUIPC (X-Plane), an automated, simple and accurate recording of many flight parameters.

The saved settings can then be loaded and displayed as tabular data as well as in Google Earth (with all flight data via balloons) by the Tiny Flight Viewer application which is a customisable application.

The Tiny Flight Tracker and Tiny Flight Viewer are bundled together, they are fully portable and do not require installation.

The use of the Tiny Flight Tracker is mandatory for all divisional pilot exams in France.

Warning: This software is not suitable for Pilot Skill Tours. To this end, use the Skill Tracker available below.

Skill Tracker

The Skill Tracker is a software developed specifically for the IVAO France division.

This is a modified version of the Tiny Flight Tracker that implements a larger number of parameters and information that are then automatically formatted in a file that is used to correct the legs of the "Pilot Skill" tour that takes place in division France. At this time, the use of the Skill Tracker is mandatory to participate in the "Pilot Skills 2018-2019" tour.

The software is available in two versions, a portable version and an installable version, each accompanied by associated documentation.

The Skill Tracker is compatible with FS9, FSX, P3D (V1-V4), X-Plane (V9-V11). This software only runs under Windows OS.
