About this app

Air Manager let’s you create custom flight simulator instrument panels on your Android tablet, and is compatible with the three most popular flight simulators. Use your tablet as a primary instrument panel and have your computer monitor for outside view only, or use your tablet as a secondary com stack to easily set frequencies through the touch screen. Air Manager comes with more than 820 free instruments, which are generally compatible with all 4 simulators. Add, drag, scale, build your instrument panel in only a matter of minutes. Save your created panels, and switch between them quickly.

User friendly
No difficult settings or downloading and configuring of third party applications. You can download the necessary plugins from our website for free. We offer a complete solution!

Place instruments anywhere you like
Tap an instrument to add it to the canvas, hold and drag to rearrange, and pinch to scale, it’s as easy as that.

Loads of free instruments
The application comes with more than 820 free instruments, and this collection keeps growing.

Buttons, Switches and Knobs
Controls like Buttons, Switches, and Knobs let you control the simulator from your 2D panels, so your Flight Simulation is super realistic. Setting a radio frequency or the altimeter setting, moving electrical switches, and controlling the autopilot are just a few examples of what you can do without directly accessing the flight simulator.

Multiplatform and multi simulator
The Air Manager plugin runs on Microsoft Window, Mac OSX, and Linux, and is compatible with Laminar Research X-Plane 9, 10 and 11, Microsoft FS2020, Microsoft FSX, FSX Steam Edition, all versions of Lockheed Martin Prepar3D.

I love the concept, efficiency, and ease of use this app brings to X-plane,. However, being very detail oriented, the inability to set instruments to specific position and size through properties (as in the desktop version which I completely love) along with the inability to remove or change the instrument and panel backgrounds are real drawbacks. Snapping is a nice feature, but not being able to scale from one corner instead of the center makes it very difficult to make the instruments the same size causing black lines between instruments with colored backgrounds. Being able to adjust background properties of either or both backgrounds would eliminate this issue. The ability to adjust size by pixels would make panel layout much easier, more consistent, and better looking than is currently available in this app. I really hope to see improvements in these areas, which would then earn a full 5 Stars! It would really be nice to layout a panel in the desktop version and be able to use it in the android version without using the resources of your main computer via Air Player. Hopefully these will be addressed in future updates. Keep up the great work!

We will probably add the option to choose your background color in a later version. The pixel per pixel adjustment will not come to the Android app I think, this is really something for the desktop app.

I've tried loads of apps with my X-Plane setup and this is by far the best. I have it running on three tablets and have had absolutely no problems. The pre-built panels are amazing, there are hundreds of other gauges to choose from and editing the panels is really simple. Worth every penny!

I used to use Air Manager with XPlane 11 on an older Android 7 tablet, it was great. Now I have Android... 13 or something? And a very new Samsung phone, the Air Manager UI is impossible to use, and crashes often. I don't know what happened here... the Android version is not even documented on the website as far as I can tell. I think the only modern version is for desktop, maybe iPad?
