In a nutshell

Remote Server allows you to use your tablet / phone as a Remote CDU supporting many different mobile devices (Android tablet or phone, iPhone, iPad, Amazon tablet, Windows tablet or phone).

Supported Aircraft

The current version allows you to interact with all the CDUs in:

  • Aerosoft’s A318-A321 Professional
  • Aerosoft’s A330 Professional
  • Aerosoft’s CRJ (SP1)
  • Leonardo’s Maddog MD-82 (SP1.10 or later)
  • Majestic Software’s Q400 Pro version 1.020b
  • PMDG 737 NGX (SP1c or later) or 737 NGXu
  • PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies II, including the 747-8
  • PMDG 777
  • QualityWings 787 v1.1.3
  • TFDi Design’s 717

Additionally, you can connect your tablet or phone to the Aerosoft CRJ’s DAVE inflight tablet.

The Remote Overhead will run either as a webapp similar to the Remote CDU or on a networked Windows-PC as a standalone application. It allows you to control the PMDG 737NGX, 777X and 747 overhead panel.

The Remote Overhead for the 777 supports both Passenger and Freighter variants and you can choose between the two.

The Remote Overhead for the 747 supports the -400, -400 Freighter, -8i and -8 Freighter variants. The correct configuration is loaded automatically based on the loaded aircraft.

Free Version

The server is available as a free-to-view solution so you can test if your device will work. Once you are satisfied, you can then purchase a full-control license which will allow you to control the CDU and/or the Overhead, all the way from pre-flight to landing. You’ll no longer need to use your mouse / keyboard, making your simming experience more realistic.
