Public Beta Versions

We are going to start posting beta versions of the next release as they are available. We will post what bugs the beta version addresses and any new features it has that you can try out.

We invite you to try it and see how it does. Please provide feedback to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. on any new problems you encounter and if it fixes a bug you had noticed in the released version.

If you are not experiencing issues with the release version, you may want to just wait for the next release.

The Public Betas are Updates. They must be installed over an existing, working version or they will not run.

Versions 2.6.4.0 and higher have a new name for the executable: Pilot2ATC_2021.exe.. After installing the update, you may need to change any shortcuts you have to the program in windows.
