VAS ACARS NXT and Microsoft Flight Simulator Published on 17 Aug 2020 by Koen Vlaswinkel

Hi pilots,

Tomorrow (or today depending on your timezone), Microsoft Flight Simulator will release. VAS ACARS NXT is compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator immediately, in combination with the FSUIPC7 beta.

To get started, follow the following steps:

  1. Follow the instructions to download and install FSUIPC7:

    Instructions for installation of FSUIPC7

  2. Start your Microsoft Flight Simulator

  3. Start FSUIPC7

  4. Start VAS ACARS NXT

  5. You can now start recording your flight as usual

Unfortunately, due to some lacking functionality in MSFS2020, you will need to start FSUIPC7 manually before starting your recording. We hope to release VAS ACARS NXT with native SimConnect support in the future, which would work directly without starting FSUIPC7.

Please report any issues you find to us by creating a support ticket.
