Full 3D flight planning - coming up soon!

Recommended Posts

Hello pilots!

 

I'd like to share with you a preview of new features upcoming in v1.3 of my free flight planner:

 

1) Terrain Layer - add anywhere in the world map. Read elevations under mouse cursor, see 'the bigger picture' to plan climb and descent for your route.

2) Vertical Profile - plan your cruise altitude, climb & descent rate and WPs altitudes in very friendly UI using mouse drag.

See the 3-minute video below for more information :rolleyes:

Thanks guys. Hope to finish this soon :smile: .

 

Another useful way to use terrain layer is to set range for elevations values in such way, that you have bicolored image.

 

This is example for New Zealand - in very mountainous area.

Excellent stuff Lukasz.

I don't believe any real world flight planning  software is able to show terrain to that level of detail, simulation out performing the real world - pretty cool.

I will need some people to test early version soon.

 

If any one here want to try it and send me back some feedback, please send me a message with your email.

 

Thanks,

Lukasz
