What is FSIPanel?

FSiPanel is new software for discerning Flight Simulator enthusiasts.

This utility allows you to emulate the training habits of professional pilots.

As an airline pilot with 15 years experience and a huge fan of Microsoft's Flight Simulator. I wanted to develop a tool that provides repetitive professional simulator training for the highly-sophisticated aircraft that are modelled in FSX and P3D.

I found it frustrating that after landing - in order to fly another approach - you must: reposition the aircraft on the ground, re-program the FMS, re-configure the whole aircraft, take off again, and fly the circuit - all of which takes another 15 minutes of your valuable time in order to be able to set up another practice approach. Therefore, I developed FSiPanel, so that it only takes you a few seconds to set up each detailed practice approach, just like the professionals!

Jean-Pierre Garraio


FSiPanel allows you to use a simple but powerful 'point-and-click' instructor panel (on a stand-alone PC or server) to repeat approaches and landings training.

FSiPanel will position your aircraft at the following positions:
   Final approach from any distance.
   Downwind leg
   Base leg
   Vectors (30 or 45 intercept)
   10'000, 20'000 or 30'000 ft in cruise.
   On an Airport STAR (Standard Terminal Arrival Route)
   On runway threshold for a traffic pattern.


Supported aircraft




FSiPanel is designed to help you train your high end aircraft the same way as we train in the airline environment.
FSiPanel will support the major high end aircraft and more aircraft will be added based on users request.
If your aircraft is not yet supported, please vote for it in the support forum

About the Developer, Jean-Pierre Garraio:



"I started my career as airline pilot in 1998 with a Swiss regional airline called Crossair flying the Saab 2000.

In 2002, I joined Swiss Intl Airlines and recently joined a middle east national airline flying as Captain and instructor.

I'm a big fan of flight simulators, reason why I've created this software to allow serious simmers to train sophisticated aircraft as we would train in the airline.

Beta testers

Thank you to my beta testers pilots, they have flown hundreds of approaches in all different possible positions to improve and correct the software."

A great piece of software to solve a real-world problem and a great training tool. Through repetition, this will help pilots to get up to speed with the maneuvers. Designed by a real-world pilot passionate about enhancing pilot training through virtual flying.

After the Dogs of War are let slip, let us smoke the Pipes Of Peace.

I've looked at this before.  Seems like a great tool.  I've held off on it but seems usefull.  There's also FS-Flight Control which can be purchased at simmarket, works with all sims (prepar, fsx, and xplane).  Doesn't seem to have as intricate detailed support for specific airframes though, but it's still under development.

I have not used FS-Flight Control. It does have a free 2 week trial though. It also has more parts to it, moving map etc. However I find the following a negative:
1. You need to be online to use it.
2. The support is for 1 year only. It means you will receive all new versions up to one year after your purchase for free. After that you must pay!

I have used FSiPanel. It is constantly being improved and added to. The developer is a professional pilot who enjoys flight sims as well. He is open to adding features requested by the community. He is also fast at putting out regular updates. I am happy with FSiPanel at this stage.

FSiPanel does seem like the better product.  I just with they had more aircraft you could use it with, but they got all the big ones supported which is good.

FSiPanel has a growing selection of "complex" aircraft. The previous version allowed you to use "basic" aircraft as well. This feature is coming soon.

You purchase "tokens" for your chosen complex aircraft: http://fsipanel.com/Products.html
