simFDR is the most comprehensive Flight Data Recorder software for modern PC Flight Simulators, allowing you to record details about all of your flights in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004, Flight Simulator X and Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D. (Support for Laminar Research X-Plane on Microsoft Windows is planned for late 2016.) Unlike existing flight data recorders, simFDR tracks over 100 flight parameters several times a second, including payware system status for Level-D and modern PMDG products. Your flight is continually monitored and saved using an exclusive algorithm that optimizes flight details along with data storage efficiency.
simFDR uses the same core technology as the Delta Virtual Airlines ACARS flight tracking software, which has logged over 750,000 flights totalling over 2 million flight hours. It is known across the world as the most reliable and popular flight tracking software for the simulation of commercial aviation. Today, simFDR brings you that same technology and allows everyone to take advantage of it. On all flights. On all aircraft.
WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT
simFDR is not commercial software. It's a Service.
Commercial flight simulation software has a lot of challenges for you, the user. You shouldn't have to fiddle with complicated DRM schemes, Add-on Managers and other software designed to restrict what you can do with the software. You shouldn't have to make another purchase when a new simulator is released, new features are added or bugs are fixed.
simFDR has none of these problems. Our client software is free for you to download and evaluate, to make sure that simFDR works well with your simulator. You can easily review the data that simFDR submits and the features we offer, then painlessly upgrade to a full simFDR subscription. You can log up to 5 flights absolutely free using simFDR - there are no restrictions on the type or length of these flights.
Your simFDR subscription allows you to view all of your flights, as well as providing additional features such as runway analysis and statistics across all of your flights. Instead of a Microsoft proprietary logbook on your computer that often doesn't survive a Windows reinstall, all of your flight data will be safe for years on simFDR's servers. You will never be locked in, either - we promise to always make your flight data available to you in KML, CSV, XML, and JSON formats.
Registering at simFDR automatically gives you a lifetime account at simFDR.com. If your simFDR subscription is active, you can upload your flight data to simFDR.com for storage. Even if your subscription expires, you can reactivate it at any time, and start uploading new flight data. And you NEVER need an active subcription to download the latest updates to the simFDR client software, or to download and view your existing flight data.
simFDR is currently in beta test. That means simFDR is completely free for you to use for an unlimited number of flights. All data from the beta period will be retained indefinitely at no cost to you. Our storefront is active and available for you to test, but will not accept live credit card numbers we encourage you to test it. Your help keeps our costs and prices low!
Once simFDR leaves the beta period, we anticipate a subscription price of US$44.95 for an initial subscription of one year, payable via credit card. Renwals for an additional year will be available at a discounted rate of $22.95 per year.
READY TO TRY simFDR FOR YOURSELF?
We don't want you to spend a single penny until you've got simFDR installed on your computer and you've tried it out for yourself. We're confident you'll agree - simFDR combines the best flight simulator Flight Data Recorder combined with the world's most advanced simulator log book. At that point, you can purchase a simFDR subscription that immediately download, unlocking the full capabilities of the simFDR client.
