Cool New Feature Lets You "Fly" Your Flight Plan, View TFR's,
MOA's, Terrain, Etc.
By ANN Correspondent Juan Jimenez
RMS Software Inc., makes
of Flitesoft™ flight planing software, Flitesoft
Express™ flight planning and moving map software and
Vista™ have released an update to Flitesoft which includes a
cool new feature named "Virtual Flight."
If you're like me, you've probably wished you could "fly" your
flight plan in real time with the latest TFR and other airspace
data. The advantages of being able to do this are obvious. If
you're going to be flying into situations where you might run into
trouble if you're not careful, seeing them on the ground allows you
to at a minimum be aware of them, and perhaps even change your
route to avoid them. If this would not be an improvement towards
the problems of insufficient situational awareness, what would
What RMS has done is implement this very feature into their
update of Flitesoft. Once the flight plan is defined, selecting
Virtual Flight from the menu displays a window that shows a
three-dimensional view of the terrain and airspace along the route.
You can then "fly" the route, pan and zoom at will, "climb" or
"descend" and basically take a look at all the airspace details and
other information along the planned route of the flight.
The update to Flitesoft that includes this and other features is
being released on the company's web site concurrent with their
standard 28-day update cycle.
