Customisable GPWS System

Note: this is nothing to do with having the Airbus GPWS voice. I know there is a topic for that already.

Currently in IF there are 12 GPWS callouts: 2500, 1000, 500, 400, 300, 200, 100, 50, 40, 30, 20, and 10. However, many airlines actually have some of these turned off. For example, I believe Ryanair use 2500, 1000, 500 (if on a non-precision approach), 50, 40, 30, 20, and 10 — i.e. skipping 400, 300, 200, 100, and 500 if on an ILS. That’s just one example of how GPWS callouts can be configured, but there are other variations depending on operator.
So this is what I’m kind of suggesting, to be able to configure which of the callouts you want to hear.
If we ever get MDA callouts, it would also be great to choose between “approaching minimums” and “plus hundred”, and whether it says ”minimums”, “minimums, minimums”, “decision height”, or nothing at all. Same would go for if we ever got the “V1” GPWS callout, to be able to turn it on or off.

This is what settings I would suggest. Note: this assumes that minimums and V1 callouts were there, however, I am not officially trying to request those here as that would be a second feature request. I’ve added them in so that if they were added in the future, this request still covers them.


“SMART” means it will not do it when established on an ILS, but will otherwise.

Been waiting for a post like this to come around. It’s so useful to be able to have this modified on X-Plane where minimising distraction is a must during critical phases of flight. Infinite Flight could definitely use something like this to up the realism game even further.

Big fan of this. Like LordWizrak mentioned above, having this feature in some X-Plane 11 aircraft just puts that realism factor a bit higher and suppresses unnecessary callouts.

Certainly something I’d like to see in-app.

no they don’t use anything, they only hear the 10 callout 3 seconds after touch/crashdown


Interesting idea tho
