Add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator and Google Earth
Compatible with Flight Simulator X and Flight Simulator 2004

FS Earth acts as an interface between Flight Simulator and Google Earth, letting to follow a flight in real time, over the satellite images generated by Google Earth. Flights can be saved, and many options are available for fine tuning the performance, as well as the map's style (zoom, tilt, orientation). Works on a single computer running Flight Simulator and Google Earth all together, or, for best experience, can be used on two networked computers running respectively Flight Simulator (master) and Google Earth (slave). Supports flight plan, AI traffic and multiplayer aircraft display inside Google Earth, course prediction for own aircraft and AI traffic, and more!

Trial version available for FSX and FS2004, click here for pricing information and download.

SCREENSHOTS AND SAMPLES
Moving map in Flight Simulator
Get stunning map views based on satellite images coming from Google Earth, in real time, throughout your flight. Aircraft's position and path is visualized over the map, as coming from Flight Simulator. Many options are availabe to fully customize map's behaviour and style.
 
Use the "tilt" option available in FS Earth, to get a 3D view of the satellite scenery generated by Google Earth. Once again, the Aircraft's position and path is visualized over the image, as coming from Flight Simulator.
 
Are you a scenery designer? Use FS Earth to verify in real time, proper placement of runways and other objects, cross-checking their position with satellite images generated by Google Earth. Very cool and powerful!

View AI and multiplayer traffic inside Google Earth while flying! Works also in "tilt" mode and several options are available to customize the AI traffic & multiplayer aircraft appareance! In FSX, a spatial three-dimensional representation of aircrafts and paths is also available (right picture; the "tilt" mode is available also in FS2004 but the objects are "clamped" to ground)

Upload flight plans in flight simulator
Flight plans generated by Flight Simulator, or by any compatible software, can be uploaded into Google Earth and displayed in orange, with proper symbology for airport, VOR, NDB and waypoints. Own aircraft path, AI traffic, multiplayer traffic, and flight plan can be displayed all together!


CONFIGURATION SAMPLES
Using the "always in front" option, Google Earth runs superimposed on instrument panel. Google Earth and Flight Simulator running onto two different windows.
Network configuration. In this sample, a small notebook is used for Google Earth. Using dual monitor output on the same computer.

 

Many options are available to control the map's style and Behaviour, as well as the AI Traffic and multiplayer aircrafts display.

 

MAIN FEATURES

•  Compatible with Flight Simulator X and Flight Simulator 2004, link Google Earth to Flight Simulator;

•  Works with Flight Simulator 2004 with or without 9.1 patch, Flight Simulator X with or without SP1 installed, Flight Simulator X with or without FSX Acceleration Pack;

•  Compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 (please click the link for important information);

•  See your aircraft flying over satellite scenery generated by Google Earth;

•  Works in map mode (as a moving map or GPS device) or in "tilt" view mode, to simulate real 3D scenery;

•  Aircraft's position and path, as coming from Flight Simulator, throughout the flight;

•  Very smooth map scrolling in Google Earth (smooth like Flight Simulator itself);

•  View AI Traffic ("dynamic scenerey") and multiplayer aircrafts over Google Earth's generated map, in real time, as coming from Flight Simulator;

•  Customizable aircrafts labels (flight number, altitude, etc,);

•  User's defineable keystrokes to set zoom & tilt interactively from Flight Simulator;

•  View the course predicition for own aircraft and AI / Multiplayer traffic;

•  View a spatial three dimensional representation of aircrafts and paths;

•  "click and fly" option, letting the user to click any placemark in Google Earth and draw the route instantly from current aircraft's position;

•  Upload into Google Earth any flight plan generated by Flight Simulator (or any 100% compatible software) and see it displayed with proper symbology throughout your flight;

•  Save flight's path and current situation for future reference;

•  Set map's style and behaviour (range, zoom, tilt, orientation); has also a dynamic zoom option depending on aircraft's ground speed;

•  Optimize the performance with flexible update rate parameters;

•  "Always in front" option, to superimpose Google Earth anywhere over the instrument panel (requires Flight Simulator running maximized or in a window, not full screen);

•  Works on a single computer running FS2004 / FSX and Google Earth all together, or, for best experience and performance, can be used on two networked computers running respectively FS2004 or FSX (master) and Google Earth (slave);

•  Works in "batch" mode (fly without Google Earth, then save and review the flight's path later).

•  Very usesul for scenery designers, to cross-check the position of scenery objects, in real time over Google Earth's satellite images;

•  Trial mode available (works around Anchorage, Alaska, for a maximum of about 5 minutes);

•  User's friendly interface to configure all the options.

•  Doesn't require any additional software or add-on, other than Flight Simulator 2004 or Flight Simulator X, and Google Earth (works with the freeware version of Google Earth)
