Reality XP provides sim products for plug-in to x-plane for both the GNS and GTN series GPS nav/coms. This really helps to integrate the GPS nav/com into the proficiency practice of the x-plane sim. Has anyone heard if this company or another has any plans to incorporate an IFD sim into x-plane?

The IFD Trainer is very useful and much appreciated for learning unit operation and testing what-if scenarios at home. But having the unit in a full-blown sim such as x-plane for keeping up IR proficiency on a cold winter day would allow practice of IFD use in realistic simulated IFR environment.

Perhaps Reality XP might perceive a market for the product if they were to be bombarded with requests from the IFD user community (hint, hint). The GTN product costs about $50 and an IFD plug for x-plane would certainly be worth as much.

I would hope that Avidyne would be ready to support such a 3rd party effort to the extent of making information available for development of such a plug-in....  IFDs were popping up in x-plane simulators all over the place could give considerable free advertising in the form of exposure to a lot of pilots.

See this thread:  http://forums.avidyne.com/ifd540-integration-into-training-simulators_topic479.html?KW=x%2Dplane

Doesn't look like it will happen any time soon (no software hooks in the simulator), although I agree it would be nice.
