Much more details on airspaces!

All the details you can ask for about airspaces are now there!

We have pulled all the juice we could out of aeronautical data and the application now displays a lot more information about airspaces.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: you need to reload your aeronautical data to access the new information.

 

Those details can be accessed directly from most places in the moving map.

fa_airspace_tap_small

When tapping on the map, the airspaces that do have additional details are now “active” (1) and will lead to the airspace details page.

This list now shows the airspace frequencies.
Each item will only show 2 frequencies. If there are more, a + sign(2) will signal that.
When a frequency is followed by a *(3) it means it has been extracted automatically from airspace comments (for example, if the comments contains “Activity known from Nimes Tower 127.925 Mhz”, we would extract 127.925 as a possible frequency from this airspace.
It does not mean it is the only one.

 

Obviously, we made the airspace details available directly from the airspace warning and alert panel.
Tap the question mark and you will access immediately the details of the airspace you are being alerted about.

The airspace details can as well be accessed from the current airspaces list.

 

The airspace details page itself shown everything we know about the airspace.

The information is extracted from the official AIP as available from Eurocontrol.
The depth of the information can vary based on what your country submits to Eurocontrol.

You want to use a town or a village as a waypoint or to perform a GOTO? No worries long press on the place name and you have it.

VFR reporting points now tell their name

It is often usefull to have the description of a reporting point to identify it clearly (name of a place/village, landmark, etc.).
