Other clients for IPS CMS

Do you want more details in your flightlog? Or have a lot of offline-flying pilots?

The IPS CMS system can also be used with a number of pilot-client flightloggers! This enables more detailled flightlogs and serves your offline-flying pilots. A link between the IPS and the flightlogger can be established (OnlineCheck), so that the flightloggers can even be used when flying online.

The following flightlogging programs are supported by the IPS CMS:
NamePriceWebsiteOSFree for pilotsFree for the VA*
kACARS_Free €0 http://www.fs-products.net/ Windows yes yes
smartCARS €30 http://tfdidesign.com/ Windows yes no
Custom kACARS €30 http://www.fs-products.net/ Windows yes no
FS Flight Keeper €30 http://www.flightkeeper.net/ Windows no yes
XAcars €20 http://www.xacars.net/ Windows,

Linux
yes yes
* "Free for the VA" applies to the use of the program itself, not the price of the IPS CMS module.

OnlineCheck (€20)

The OnlineCheck module establishes a link between the flightlogger and the IPS flightlogger. Throughout the flight the OnlineCheck module checks if the pilot is flying online or not. Then if the pilot is flying online, the pirep is filed as if the pilot was flying online instead of offline. Also, display on the current flights page on which network the pilot is flying on.

To prevent flightlogging conflicts, the IPS flightlogger cannot be used to log flights when using the OnlineCheck module.
