The best instrument panel tool on the market.

Air Manager is an application which allows you to create your own 2D flight simulator panels. You can run it on the same computer as your flight simulator, or on a seperate computer. It will automatically connect to your X-Plane, FS2020, FSX or Prepar3D flight simulator on your local network. Choose your panel from one of the included 23 pre-made panels, or create your own from a library of more than 1100 free instruments. Is the instrument you are looking for not in our library? No problem, you can create your own by using our simple API in combination with the Lua scripting language.
