Navigraph annuncia una nuova versione della propria suite Charts per creare il piano di volo, con procedure SID / STAR aggiornate.Ora è possibile fare in modo che Navigraph calcoli la rotta tra due aeroporti o per importare la propria. Soprattutto, l’integrazione delle procedure standard di partenza e arrivo è facilitata con la sovrastampa sulla mappa con il percorso per scegliere il più adatto per il piano di volo e le condizioni meteorologiche. Inoltre, il pannello di volo utilizza più colori per una migliore leggibilità nella scelta delle mappe.
“Route Calculation – A pilot can plan a flight between two airports and ask Navigraph Charts to calculate a route. Optimized for shortest distance the suggested route will use the closest transition points near the airports. The calculator supports NAT and FRA routing. The route calculator has been designed to be very easy to use and doesn’t have very many settings. More features may be added as we receive user feedback.
Colorful Route String Visualization – Whether you decide to calculate the route, or build one yourself by clicking waypoints, the airports; runways; procedures and waypoints are all represented as colorful pills in the flight panel making it easy to navigate in the Charts software.
Procedure Visualization – Once you have a route, you can visualize the departure procedures on the enroute map to see which SID that fits the selected runway and transition point. Similarly, at the arrival airport, you can visualize the arrival and approach procedures as brightly colored tracks into the airport in order to choose the best one.
Intelligent Procedure Selector – When selecting procedures, we have listed the most appropriate ones at the top, so that you don’t have to scroll to find the one that fits your runway and transition point.
Map Overlay – While selecting procedures you can also superposition a procedure chart on top of the enroute chart to better understand how it connects to your route. We find that especially when combined with the moving maps feature, pilots get an increased situational awareness as all relevant information is displayed in proximity to the ownship icon as it travels across the procedure chart.
SimBrief Integration – While Navigraph Charts can calculate a route, some of you may want to import your own routes. You can do this by copy pasting a text route string or by importing a PLN file, but the easiest and most flexible way is to enter your SimBrief username and let Navigraph Charts fetch the latest flight plan from SimBrief.”
