Random Flight Database is a unique standalone utility that produces a flight origin and destination based upon user-defined parameters.
Available for free, the utility draws from an extensive database of airport information and airline schedules for a more realistic experience, and integrates with weather and charts to provide information about the flight it has generated.
To generate a new random flight, users can specify the aircraft, destination or departure airfield, airline, flight distance or flight length. The utility will do the rest, producing a flight fitting the parameters selected. Consecutive flights can also be generated, originating at the previous arrival airport, to plan a random series of legs of a longer flight.
With the flight generated, the tool allows users to simply export it to SimBrief or PFPX.
While the base utility is free and draws from RadarBox, a range of optional databases are available from the developer’s online shop.
Random Flight Database is a hugely impressive standalone utility, able to assist with both deciding the origin and destination, chart and weather planning, and exporting to a flight plan tool such as SimBrief.
With more than 37,000 airports currently available within the base version of MSFS, choosing where to fly can sometimes be something of a dilemma. Even veteran users of the simulator can find themselves at a loss regarding where to explore next. This utility will be especially helpful for those users.
