Real time live traffic for MSFS, Prepar3D and FSX
******* 7th Anniversary edition! *******
- Real time live traffic injection, approx. 30 seconds delay only
- works quite different from other AI traffic programs, while PSXT does not use the AI engine of your Simulator, but mirrors the exact positions of live aircraft
- can support up to 100 frames per second
- aircraft are always exactly where the real live aircraft are, hence they:
- depart from the real live gate and park at the real live gate
- take the actual runway in use
- follow the real airways, SIDs and STARs or are vectored (by live ATC)
- may reject a take-off, divert, go-around and are at real live distances from each other
- crab land and crab take-off in heavy cross winds
- works with any AI aircraft model/livery that is compatible with your Simulator:
- AIG, FSLTL, IVAO MTL, FS Traffic, ...
- matches model/liveries as real as it gets based on registration code (tail-number) and/or airline and type
- knows for about 35500 registration codes of nowadays flying aircraft, the airline, model, and whether or not it is a cargo plane
- knows for about 21900 registration code the best livery mapping to an AIG aircraft
- matches GA, Gliders, Fighter aircraft and helicopters too
- matches the right livery for American regional carriers operating for different airlines
- matches the right livery for cargo airlines operating for DHL or Amazon
- learns where airlines park, with what type, at what time of the day, and at what day of the week
- learns your destination airport while you are flying to it
- puts static aircraft of the right airline, type and livery at the right gate at the right hour and day, no empty airports
- comes out of the box with 401 (MSFS) already learned airport files
- aircraft are visible in LittleNavMap
- aircraft are visible in the TCAS of user planes
- no flight plans needed
- works world wide
- works with historic data too
- runs as seperate process outside the Simulator, cpu load less than 0.5 percent
- easy to install
- is mature, no CTD's, exists 7 years already!
- can be used "free of charge"
- Injecting aircraft may have a negative impact on your fps. However, 40+ fps can be easily achieved, even with a middle class PC
- Aircraft follow live ATC, they don't obey programs such as Pilot2ATC, although Pilot2ATC does detect PSXT aircraft and may issue warnings and holds
- The real time traffic data is not included but provided by a seperate payware tool called RealTraffic from Inside Systems Pty Ltd.
Choose for a real immersion, go for real time live traffic!
To give PSXT a try, you could buy a one month standard license for RealTraffic, enjoy a full month of real traffic and make your own judgement.
If you are using FSLTL, installation is very simple, PSXT will pick up the FSLTL liveries automatically.
Videos: (note that these video's are with older versions of PSXT, the traffic is not so smooth as with versions 33.0.0+)
- See how close PSXT is to real live, London Heathrow, 27L, one screen real live TV, other screen MSFS.
- Rush hour at KEWR with LiveAtc (P3D), note that the user has blocked one live aircraft and taken its place in the line (#7 for takeoff).
- KJFK departures
- The famous JFK Canarsie 13L approach with LiveAtc (P3D)
- Real Live OPS, MD82 Landing NJC LaGuardia (MSFS), note that the user has blocked Delta 2469 and has taken its place for landing.
- Information Zulu with his KLAX Live airport 24/7 powered by PSXT.

Downloads for version 35.1.2, March 1, 2023
Follow the instructions in the MSFS Quick Start Guide.
Follow the instructions in the P3D Quick Start Guide.
Follow the instructions in the FSX Quick Start Guide.
Although PSXT learns airports too, all three PSXT versions contain the stand alone PSXT_Learner program to update airport files with real live parking information without having the need for a Fligh Simulator connection; just run RealTraffic and PSXT_Learner.
FAQ and Forum
If you have a question, check the FAQ first please.
Search for information or post your questions in my forum at AVSIM.
Is PSXT free?
Yes and no, my programs may be used free of charge. However, "free of charge" must not be confused with "completely free". It is copyrighted software, not free software. There are restrictions on distribution and use, see the EULA file when installing the software. A major restriction is that it is for non-commercial use only.
PSXT is free from advertisements. If you like my program, see below a link for donations.

And now for something completely different ...
My mature PSXseecon software for building a PSX B744 home cockpit
PSXseecon connects the Aerowinx Precision Simulator version 10 (PSX) with the SIOC software of Opencockpits.
It acts as a bridge between these two worlds, "talking" the Aerowinx Network Protocol over TCP/IP to PSX and "talking" the IOCP protocol over TCP/IP to the SIOC Server. Although both worlds offer a TCP/IP based interface, they speak different protocols, and they are both servers. PSXseecon acts as a client program to PSX and as a client program to SIOC and performs protocol translation.
2460 predefined SIOC variables representing 99% of the functionality of the PSX interface are available. These variables give access to almost all states and controls of the PSX. You can receive information about state changes in the 744 and you can set Buttons, Switches, levers, Throttles, Dials, what have you, in the 744. Everything you need to build a cockpit.
