Software

This page contains all information related to the software needed for the flight and ATC simulation activities within the IVAO network.

The software presented in this page is the only software approved for flying and providing air control services on IVAO. They are developed by the Software Development Department (SoftDev) at IVAO HQ level. It is therefore the SoftDev department that assumes full responsibility for any operating problem, compatibility and rights of use.


For any questions about these software, consult the forum or write to the SoftDev department.

Software for ATC

IvAc

IvAc logo


IvAc is the software to provide ATC services on the IVAO network. It was developed based on the radar screens and the main features of real ATC stations.

IvAc software is only compatible with Windows OS.

IvAc manuals

FR version - EN version

Versions of IvAc 1.1.12 and earlier are deprecated and should not be used.

Sector files

The use of IvAc requires the availability of sector files adapted to the ATC position. These text files are developed under the responsibility of the AO department of the France division by staff and non-staff members and are made available to all ATCs.

They are organised by controlled airspace and position type and associated with the FIRs responsible for the underlying lands.

In particular, two types of sector files are available:

  • Approach sector files: these files are used to control the approach (APP) and underlying positions (TWR, GND and DEL) and generally correspond to the entire TMA and SIV of an airport.
  • En-route control sector files: these files are used to control an en-route centre (CTR position). There is a sector file for each FIR.

The link to the relevant sector file for each ATC position is available in the "ATC Tools" section (by clicking on the relevant ATC position).

TeamSpeak


The TeamSpeak2 software is the voice connection tool currently used between pilots and ATC. It is automatically installed at the time of installation of IvAc (or IvAp) and is no longer distributed separately.

Complementary software

TS-Info

TS info

TS-Info is a handy utility associated with IvAc that allows better interface with TS2. In particular, it indicates on the IvAc radar screen the user who is transmitting on frequency from TeamSpeak and also offers other very useful options.

This software is developed by Fabio Marracci (Bafio) and has been approved by IVAO.

Software for pilots

IvAp

IvAp

IvAp is the IVAO pilot interface software that allows connection between IVAO servers and the Flight Simulator. The software is compatible with FS2002, FS2004, FSX and P3D and is only compatible with the Windows OS.

Download IvAp v1 for FS2002 and FS2004

FR version - EN version

The versions of IvAp 1.4.2 and earlier (FS2002 and FS2004) and 1.9.8 (for FSX and P3D) are obsolete and should not be used.


installing IvAp in P3D v3 or v4 requires a modified installation procedure with some manual steps. This procedure is described here for P3D v3 and here for P3D v4.

X-IvAp


IvAp is the IVAO pilot interface software that allows connection between IVAO servers and the X-Plane. The software is compatible with X-Plane 8, 9, 10 and 11 and with Windows, Linux and Mac OS.

MTL

MTL (Multiplayer Traffic Library) is a library of all aircraft texture available for the IVAO network. Its purpose is to allow each pilot to see the other aircraft connected to the network with the texture corresponding to their type of aircraft and their company.

MTL is installed automatically when installing IvAp or X-IvAp.

Caution: the MTL compatible with P3D v4 requires the installation via a patch available in the forum here.

Other software

IvAi

IvAi

IvAi is a software that allows you to run several programs simultaneously (typically IvAc and IvAp) with a single connection to the IVAO network. It thus offers the possibility to have a tower view in ATC position or multiple radar screens.

HAL

HAL is a dedicated server for ATC training activities on IVAO. It is able to generate simulated traffic that respond to commands by text. This allows ATC to train in radar sequencing and vectoring techniques under intense flow conditions.

FSD

FSD is the software used for IVAO servers. It allows pilots and controllers to share their data on the server and display it via control or control software.

IvAe - The Eye

IvAe and The Eye are old software developed by SoftDev to observe network activity in real time, namely members connected as pilot, ATC or observer. These tools are no longer distributed because they are obsolete and have been replaced by the Webeye website.
