WinPilot VFR for PNA


License: Trial

This is another software requested by my reader. It’s not free, but you can run it in simulator mode. Unlike the other programs, the program has to be in \Program Files\ directory and all the other files have to be in \My Documents\ directory. Since we don’t have direct access to \Program Files\ and \My Documents\ directories, I wrote an installation script (install.exe) to achieve it. You need to run install.exe every time you hard reset your unit.

After you install the program, use run.exe to run the actual program. Note that run.exe is a script to invoke WinPilotVFR.exe in simulator mode. If you have purchased WinPilotVFR, you can run it in GPS mode. Edit run.mscr and make sure the RunWait command is like the following.

RunWait (“\Program Files\WinPilotVFR.exe”, “/d”)

I have created an icon for it. You can download the icon here.

  1. Looks great! I have a plane and looking to use my c230 for a backup for navigation. Could I send you an email to ask a few questions?

    Thanks in advance for your help

  2. Gary,

    If your questions are related WinPilot VFR, you might be disappointed. I only get it to run under Mio C230. I don’t know the program that well.

    If you are interested in getting some other aviation programs to run, I might be of help. Just ask your questions here.
