New Version of Voyager Flight Planning Software
October 3, 2007 Leave a comment
My friends at Seattle Avionics today announced a new version of their Voyager Flight Software System–my favorite preflight planning tool.
The latest screen shots look great, and Version 4.0 of the program apparently has a new DirectX rendering engine, so it should offer real-time scrolling and zooming, much like Google Maps and Google Earth. And the latest version can display geo-referenced Sectional and IFR charts.
You can see the new version at AOPA Expo in Hartford, CT this week.
I’ve used Voyager for many years to plan all types of trips, including long cross-country ferry treks and the annual peregrinations of my Extra 300L. It’s an invaluable tool, and I’m eager to try the latest edition.
