ELITE’s Sim-to-App software for v8.6, enables users of ELITE training software to connect the software to certain iPad flight apps—allowing pilots to bring real-world cockpit practices into the simulated flight environment. This makes your ELITE training even more effective!
With this software and a local WiFi network router (provided by user), your simulated aircraft position in the ELITE software will appear geo-referenced on Sectional and IFR Enroute charts, IFR Approach Plates, and Airport Taxi Diagrams (if those features are part of the App you are using). Currently, the ELITE Sim-to-App software supports the following iPad apps:
Following is the supported ELITE Software:
- Core v8.6

- BATD v8.6
- AATD v8.6
Please note, the Sim-to-App software is included with HOME XTS. The ELITE Sim-to-App software is only available to customers in the USA.

The ELITE Sim-to-App software is designed to work with a WiFi router, commonly used now in homes, offices, and flight schools.
