Vector maps are significantly superior to “raster” maps : they are much smaller, they support variable level of detail based on the zoom level and they are always crispy clear.
With Flight Assistant vector maps, you do not pay for coverage(*).
You will have access to all the standard definition maps for “free” subscription, and the much better high definition maps for “Basic” subscription and above.
You will as well have the option to purchase additional aviation maps in raster formats and if you own a raster map you can use in Flight Assistant(**).
Flight Assistant does not only come with vector navigation maps.
Flight Assistant offers georeferenced airport charts created from the official airport documents: one to be used for approach, one for landing and one for taxying.
But do not worry, they will display automatically based on your zoom level.
On top of that, when taxying on an airport you can activate a “special” taxi mode that will show a HD airport digram or ground movement chart in a simplified user interface that will ease airport navigation.
No more question mark when taxying on an airport!
It is paramount to us that we can offer high quality aeronautical data.
We do have a contract in place with Eurocontrol (and other national aviation authorities) in order to provide you with official aeronautical data in a large number of countries.
At minimum, the data includes airports with runway information, radio navigation points (VOR, NDB, etc.), IFR reporting points and airspaces. In most cases the data contains airport & airspace frequencies as well.
You would not fly without reviewing NOTAMs, TAFs and METARs along your trip, would you?
That is why Flight Assistant will give you access to official NOTAMs, TAFs and METARs, not only on the ground, but as well in flight.
Accurate flight planning starts with accurate plane data.
With Flight Assistant, you can model the performances of your plane accurately with its very own performance characteristics : cruise speed, climb and descent speed as well as climb and descent rate.
We are as well going the last mile for weight & balance.
You can model your plane really accurately, including a fully customizable weight stations, multiple tanks and center of gravity envelope.
