This tool will help you with controlling and indicating current SimRate in Microsoft FlightSimulator 2020 via SimConnect.

It can display and announce the current SimRate via voice. Another feature is the automatic increase and decrease of SimRate along your flight plan.


  • Display current SimRate and distance to next waypoint in app
  • Announce current SimRate via voice on change
  • Automatic SimRate increase/decrease until final waypoint of flight plan is reached (description below)
  • [TODO] Configurable Auto SimRate
  • [TODO] Display current SimRate as overlay
  • ...more to come


Automatic SimRate

When you click the "Start Travel" button the SimRate will automatically increase and decrease when the final waypoint is reached

Best use this when you departed and autopilot and speeds are set.

The conditions for auto travel to automatically stop are currently:

  • 15nm before final waypoint in flight plan (before approach)
    25nm before final waypoint on direct flights
    Approach activated

A few nm before any waypoint, the SimRate will decrease to allow the autopilot to properly adjust heading. SimRate will increase after the waypoint again.

    I had to change my mind about this very useful Tool. I used this tool about a dozen times and it worked very well. Very helpful for long distance flights. Only one remark. It dont switch back to simrate 4 after last normal waypoint. On a flight today (DA62 WASS to WAJJ) the last waypoint was 123 nm away from first approach waypoint. But thats just a small thing. Overall very good.

    The idea behind this program is very useful. I tested it today After start I connected it and it worked very well. Simrate 4 and distance to next waypoint was perfect. A few miles before (abt. 5 miles) first WP it switched down to simrate 1 and behind WP it never switched back to former simrate 4. What a pitty.
    What went wrong?

      Was the next waypoint part of the approach?

      It was the first waypoint after departure. I waited about 20 nm after wp, but program did not switch back to simrate 4. I even tried a reset, but after new start simrate 1 remained.

    This program was removed by Malware Byte stating that is is indeed a malware - Why is that?

    Hello, the SimRate tool is flashing green/blue. The travel button is no longer active. Maybe an issue with the today's upate? Thank you

    Recently I have asked for advice, but got no answer. Therefore I would like to ask again, HOW TO MAITAIN (FIX) A CERTAIN SIM-RATE. Because when I use the bandit and want to increase the speed from sim-rate 2 to 4, it always drops back to sim-rate 2. I really would be very thankful for your advice! - Thanks Laszlo (from shity-old Austria)

      You could not press the "Start Travel" button and use the shortcut keys in MSFS itself.

    Great tool! Thanks for this one. Since there is no way right now to tell what rate your at before I found this I was listening the the engine noise and if I went below rate 1 the pitch of the sound would change.

    A QUESTION: I have got problems to maintain a certain rate - let`s say, simrate 4.. - when I choose that, the rate always drops back to simrate 2... - HOW TO FIX THE SIMRATE, so that it maintains rate 4????

    Hey dga,

    Is it possible if you can open source this tool in github? I would like to add a manual mode to control the simrate that is independent from the flightplan.

    Works amazing! However, I have noticed the cloud base is significantly higher while it is running. At FL340 I am flying just above very thick dense clouds
