The freeware X-Plane 11 and Prepar3D tool suite SimToolkitPro was updated yesterday to version 0.5.70 with a hotfix released just hours later updating it to 0.5.71.

SimToolkitPro is an electronic flight bag (EFB) software compatible with both X-Plane and Prepar3D. The program includes flight planning via SimBrief, an airport database, flight logging, weather injection (XP only), a landing tracker, a live tracking map and much more.
