For the world’s best flight simulator, FS2020, Sim-EFB provides an easy user interface to create/store flight plans with associated Screen Grabbed Maps/Charts for your next flight or Bush trip.
Moving Maps - Your plain position can be animated by simply defining two know points on the Screen Grabbed Map/Chart with a backup World Map with Aeronautical data.
Your own NavLog and Notes - You can build your own emulated FS2020 Navlog in minutes, displayed outside or within the FS2020 simulator.
See a demo of Flight Plan, Charts and Maps in FS2020 both in VR and normal simulator.
In the Virtual Reality flight or multi-screen environments, Sim-EFB comes into its own. Now you can have up to 3 panels arranged in your cockpit to display flight plan notes, maps and charts you have created, in one of the three separate windows.
Next time you come into land, in FS2020, you no longer have to break that first-class immersive simulated flight to look at an approach plate.

The management software allows you to quickly create a flight plan, from ICOA Code, current FS2020 flight Plan or .PLN file. It then looks up the basic airport information, or if Airport information is already in Sim EFB database then it would be used.
The search features allow quick google search for information to add to your flight plan. Notes are then entered, plus any screen shots of any Chart/Map, using the in-built screen grabber, so you have electronic access these while in flight.
Sim EFB also files the flight plans in a structured manner to aid later retrieval, with export to friends with Sim EFB installed.
Purchase, download and run the install program to install the SIM EFB panels in FS2020.
Defining two know points on the Map/Chart, using the tools provided, will allow Sim EFB to animate your current position on Airport Map, VFR Map, Departure/Arrival Plates.
