Hi all,

there's an update to swift pilot client! Please see the text below:

On January 1st, VATSIM will retire their online text-based data-file which swift uses to gather certain information about the network. So some swift features might be degraded.

There are new versions of swift available today to overcome this issue, as they use VATSIM's new json-based data-file replacement which provides the same network information in a more maintainable format.


  • Uses new json-based Vatsim data file


  • Uses new json-based Vatsim data file
  • Fixed bug that was introduced in the previous alpha, that could cause X-Plane to CTD when receiving a text message. (Beta version was not affected by this bug)
  • Fixed a minor cosmetic bug that could sometimes cause latitudes and longitudes to be displayed wrongly
  • In swift's radar, the compass rose now stays fixed, even when "lock north" is disabled, to more closely model the behaviour of real-world navigation displays

In case that you are not aware: you are able to modify the colours of swift GUI and a very kind user of swift has created a Style Sheet Generator website: https://docs.swift-project.org/doku.php?id=themes
