Do you use an Electronic Flight Bag such as ForeFlight or WingX Pro when you fly? You can now use these tools with your TouchTrainer and Train the way you Fly.

TouchTrainers® can transmit their simulated position and AHARS (Attitude, Heading and Reference System) data to multiple Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) applications running on your tablet of phone. The EFBs typically show maps, airspace, approach and airport plates on a tablet. When connected to the TouchTrainer® the EFB can show the simulated position, speed and attitude data just as if it was connected to AHARS and GPS information in flight.

The following EFBs can be connected.

  • ForeFlight
  • FlyQ EFB
  • AvPlan EFB (Australia)
  • Wing X Pro
  • SkyDemon

To send your TouchTrainer's simulated's position to your EFB from X-Plane, follow the steps below:

  1. Settings > Net connections > iPhone/iPad tab
  2. Check the box "Send Data to Fore flight Mobile or Wing X Pro to ONE iPad or iPhone
  3. Enter the IP address of your iPad or tablet in the text entry box. (Found in iPad settings > General > WIFI.)
  4. Set your EFB to receive the information. For instance iIn ForeFlight click on MORE > DEVICES. Select X-Plane, and set the Enabled Option to ON.
