Like the recent update. Great that you can now see invalid or ALL addons. Would be super useful to just see valid addons as that is the list you probably want most often. Now, there is no way to exclude the invalid addons. Thanks and keep up the great work.

Great work! I'm using it for all my flights.

A combination with the SimToolkit would be nice

Hello, thx again for this great tool. And many thx for the implementation of new features. But one thing I´m still missing. On the left hand side, where the Addon-list is, I´m missing a filter. Yesterday I´ve search a small Airport like EDHK and it was very time expensiv to locate the entry to disable it. The list is still sorted by User(Creator). It would be very nice if tis list could be sorted by ICAO-Code or there is a filter, to show only the Airports I want to see.

Maybe you can implement it as well as the other good new featurers.



Hi and thanks for this great addon! When I generete a Simbrief flight plan I only see a straight line from departure to arrival airports. How can I see the correct route generated?


It is a great tool. It would also be nice if you can see if you have a GSX profile downloaded for it.

This thing is getting more and more awesome! THANKS!

What about an IVAO implementation? 😊

Such a nice programm thanks ! Unfortunately in a quick scan of the program not all my addons in the community folder are represented...Contrail Barcelona, Azurpoly Toulon, ORBX Skiathos, FSX3D Calvi and JustFlight Malta are not on the map but present in my community folder. I stopped searching but am sure there will be in the moment not usable for me. (i only want to see my addon airport sceneries)

Just thought that I would mention a presumably unintended benefit of this great app. In rescanning my folders after adding new sceneries I kept getting error messages for items the app could not find but which I was sure were in there. Turns out that the Community folder had several old shortcuts in it which were being picked up. By turning everything off in Addon Linker they were then easily identified and deleted.

Many thanks for this. I'm not getting clouds on a strip from SE Asia to Australia. Anyone else with this problem?

Very nice mod. Would be awesome to also be able to choose different map styles, including ability to see terrain, as I love to fly over mountanious terrain

I don't understand the simbrief integration. Where do I put my simbrief pilot code? I don't see anything...

When I open in simbrief, all it does is open the simbrief web page with my current briefing, but nothing else happens in the tool.

What a great tool! Thank you so mutch for your work 😊! Will there be a function to manually add airports? I don't know why, but a few airports are listed on the left hand side but not displayed on the map.

Where is the "Add Addon folder location button" located?

I can't seem to get this to work. I have the community folder correct. It shows all my files on the left when I launch the program. However, it just keeps getting stuck on loading. Any help would be great.. TY

Hi, what an amazing tool and what a great work. Exactly a tool a lot of "pilots" were looking for!

One wish is in my mind. Can, and will you, realize, that the parameter for the Min,- and max distance will be stored and that , with the next start, the program remember theses entries? For someone like me will do nearly every day a flight from about 1 to 1,25 hours. So I planned a disance from 300 max and 250 min. But every time, with a new start, I have to fill out these values. If they are stored, it would be a little "easier". Or... instead of a standard value "0", a configureable standard value.

And the second.... exclude or dissable Airports, which are not wanted, but well in the Community Folder. Such like "small" Airports by "clicking them" and they will disappear...😉

I think, I´m not alone, which will use this tool for "commercial flights" , but have also installed small Airfields. In that way, they can be dissabled. Such as lik e "black list".. 😉

I ´ll hope, you will understand, what I mean..... 😊

Thx in advance.


What a great tool !!! My wish for the next release: Connection to simbrief

Is there no way to restrict the random choices to only addon airports?

THANK U FOR ALL THIS WORK!! this is now my first step even after i run the sim!!

hello captain!

beautiful tool you have created here for the community - thanks you for your time and effort.

one thing, always when I open the AirportFinder.exe, it opens in maximized window mode regardless what setting I set in properties. also the window never remembers last window position on my desktop.

is there a trick to fix that or is it possible to fix that in any further updates?

thank you!

I have just downloaded the program but when I run it and try to select the Community folder, it just closes. I have MSFS on my H drive but the same happens if I try to select the Community folder on my C drive.

Disse varer er i øjeblikket på listen og vil snart blive behandlet!
