Welcome to SharedFlight
Introducing a brand new add-on that brings multi-crew pilot operations to flight-simulation as seamlessly as possible and aiming to support all popular and quality aircraft in X-Plane.
Experience the challenge of taking the left hand-seat and managing an entire crew. Or perhaps you you'll take a backseat and manage the Flight Engineer's panel of a Boeing 727? Or maybe you'll want to role play as a passenger in the back of the cabin of an aged 737-200!
All this and more within a powerful and intuitive application, only for X-Plane!

Take Full Control of your flight!
Flight planning is one part of the hurdle when it comes to planning shared flights. So we have a built in chat functionality just for you. Pin the most important messages that are essential to your flight. If you're a Twitch streamer, you can invite your viewers to join you in the lobby.
With Shared Flight, you get to adjust the level of control you have with the application. Change the way you sync items in the cockpit, the way you fly online or the people you invite. And we'll keep listening to your feedback on how much control you want in this application.
It's easy to control who has access into your flight. Create an open session and players will automatically join as passengers. Passengers are locked out of cockpit controls. You can promote any passenger to be a part of the crew, or invite them in from your friends list.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How difficult is it to use?
A. Shared Flight is incredibly easy to use, and we take care to automate as many functions for you in the background as possible. We’ve designed the application to allow you to connect/host a flight in the shortest amount of clicks as possible.
Q. How good is the connection?
A. Unlike other products, we employ dedicated custom servers for you to host flights on. This empowers us to do several functions including automated syncing, large-scale connections, and eliminate all the painful network hassles and port forwarding of P2P implementations.
Q. When you mention “large-scale” connections, how many people can connect?
A. When you create the flight you can set the maximum number of crew and maximum number of passengers. Depending on the aircraft, you could have a standard 2-pilot cockpit, or perhaps add an additional Flight Engineer. You can even have people ride jump-seat. Or a large crew for a long haul.
Q. Will it be also be compatible with <<insert aircraft>>?
A. Our goals are YES! We plan to work to support all popular and quality aircraft. This depends a bit on the developer. FlyJSim is eager to work with any aircraft developer to ensure compatibility with their aircraft, and to provide a dev kit with an API for complex systems to be fully integrated. We encourage any developer who might be interested to please contact us. It is absolutely our goal to make the Shared Flight experience as open and inclusive as possible.
Q. What FlyJSim products will this be compatible with?
A. Both the FlyJSim 732 Twinjet Professional V3 and the FlyJSim 727 Series Professional V3 will be included in the list of launch compatible aircraft, with the Q4XP to follow when it is released.
Q. When will it be ready?
A. There is no set release date but we are announcing the product now so we can move towards beta testing and make our remaining development work and beta testing as open and public as you have come to expect from FlyJSim. Including our streamed dev work on Twitch. (If you aren’t already, be sure to follow jsnapp1982, FlyingJackal, Delta_Who, and Valdudes on Twitch.)
Q. How much will it cost?
A. Shared Flight will have a tiered subscription based model (final pricing TBD). We believe a subscription model will best support an actively maintained network, and constantly expanding and improving service. The goal of tiered pricing is to meet the needs of users, and to minimize arm twisting between friends that want to go flying together.
Q. I have an idea that might benefit from/with Shared Flight and would like to develop for it.
A. Please contact us at : firstname.lastname@example.org This product has been in development for many years, and will hopefully become a common way to enjoy flight simulation, and we would love for your ideas and help to make the experience even more fun and the simulation even more immersive.
