    Press Ctrl-T to toggle "Always on Top". You may need to also resize the window if you had it full-screen.

    Flight Monitor is a moving map application for use with Microsoft Flight (not FS9 or FSX). I created this after being frustrated by the limitations of FSWidget's "GMap for Flight". The things I wanted to add were:
     
    1. Allow the window to be resized or maximised.
    2. Don't require Flight to be in Hawaii or Alaska on startup.
    3. Don't require the HUD displayed to be displayed in Flight to show the aircraft heading.
    4. Allow loading of flight plans created using Plan-G.
    5. Add "direct-to" functionality.
     
    Although I created Flight Monitor primarily for my own use, since it builds on stonelance's Flight Toolkit and may be of use to the diminishing Flight community, I thought I would make it available for all to play with!
     
    Thanks to stonelance for the Flight Toolkit, and for the help he gave me when I first started this project.
     
    If you'd like to take a look, I have made it available for all (I hope!) at:

    Note: Flight Monitor requires the Flight Toolkit by stonelance (http://flighttoolkit.com), and also the .NET framework 4.6.1 or later, available from https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=49981
     
    It also requires an internet connection to download the maps.
