Dispatch & Saved File

I would like to know where is the correct folder to save a created SimBrief FP?
Personally I save it into that folder what I choose / selected for SimBrief Downloader Directory. I think when I open/delete FP, that using the same file location as Downloader Directory?


Hi Kris,

The folder to save SimBrief flight plans to depends on the Simulator and Addon.

The SimBrief Downloader has these different folder and formats defined per Simulator and Addon. Once setup, Generating the flight plan causes the flight plan to be saved to correct folders with correct format, all automagically.
So yes you are best to use the prompted folders. In the event these are not correct you can override the folders.


Thanks Ian,
Sorry for these many questions but I would like to sort it out the following FP problems what I do not see clearly. The 1990 MSFS sim file locations were lot more simple.
However, after all I want to make sure I do understand it on the right way. Here is what I have. I have MSFS 2020 and PMDG. If I do have the wrong FP location for each one of them, would you provide me the correct location routing?
Here is the list of my SimBrief Downloader Flight Plan locations:

PDF Doc: " C:_AvS FPlan_SimBrief_pdf "

FS2020: " C:_AvS FPlan_FS 2020 "
What is the correct FP location for FS2020?

PMDG FP: " C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\packages\pmdg-aircraft-738\work\Flightplans "

PMDG Wind Uplink: " C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\packages\pmdg-aircraft-738\work\WX "

vPilot: " C:_AvS FPlan_vPilot "

The Dispatch Menu where saving the FP, where is the location?

The mean time, I try to figure out when I creating FP on the Chart Beta on Tablet, what is that FP location on the tablet?

Thanks for you time…

Hi Kris,

My folders in SimBrief Downloader are:

PDF Docs: C:\Users\name\Documents

FS2020: C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState

PMDG: C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\Packages\pmdg-aircraft-738\work\Flightplans

PMDG Uplink: C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\Packages\pmdg-aircraft-738\work\WX

I don’t have vPilot but I expect SimBrief Downloader would find your correct folder.

I don’t understand “The Dispatch Menu where saving the FP, where is the location?” This depends on the FS/Addon as mentioned.

There are no Charts Beta’s. The release Charts iOS/Android save your flight plans on our servers.


Now I see what is the correct way.

Hi Kris,

You are welcome.

Happy flying.
