"Such a cool plugin, stoked at the price. This could be very very cool for flying VOR to VOR, lightening the workflow"
"Just tried the free version, and it's awesome. Gives some kind of copilot feeling to X-Plane, really great!"

PlaneCommand version 3 - free update!

PlaneCommand version 3 is the latest and most complete version of PlaneCommand yet! What's new:

Better copilot

Smarter copilot prevents critical mistakes: he won't let you raise the landing gear on the ground, or deploy thrust reversers while in the air.

Copilot sounds better- choose from different voices with different accents. (You can also adjust how fast or loud the copilot talks.)

Better recognition

More ways to give existing commands mean that you'll be heard better.

Upgraded voice recognition is even more accurate.

More systems can be controlled in this version, making flying that much more natural.

More aircraft

More and more of the most popular aircraft are supported in PlaneCommand. We'll be adding even more in the future.

Users with technical skills can expand support for other types of aircraft, and share them.

Updated frequently

New features and commands are always coming. Every update makes using PlaneCommand more natural. Bugs are fixed, and more planes work trouble-free.

I hate paying for updates to software, so upgrades are always free for Pro users, forever. There's no reason not to have the latest version.

Your virtual copilot interacts with you

Every time you speak, you'll hear back from your copilot, letting you know what's happening. You'll know that you were heard correctly.

You say
Altimeter is set to three zero two eight
Planecommand responds

A few systems give a bit more feedback- for instance, when you raise or lower the landing gear using PlaneCommand, you'll hear a response both when the gear starts moving, and when it's successfully raised or lowered.

There are hundreds of other commands in PlaneCommand- take a look at the list of all of them.

Please raise the landing gear
You say
Landing gear going up

Satisfaction guaranteed

PlaneCommand should give you a more enjoyable, more realistic, and overall better experience flying. If for some reason you aren't 100% happy with it, simply send me an email and I will happily refund your money up to 30 days after purchase. My previous customers have been consistenly satisfied, and I'm sure you will be as well.

Try for free before you buy

Unsure if PlaneCommand is for you? I have made a free version so you can try out a few commands, and show you how accurate voice recognition is. I've tried to make it useful on it's own- many basic commands for VFR flying are covered.

This isn't some time limited demo, it's a legitimately useful plugin. You can use the free version forever if you don't need the more advanced commands. When you're ready to unlock the all the features, you can buy the Pro version here. Just type in your license key to upgrade.
