Online flight planning system Enflight now has Printable Enroute Charts, WACs, TACs, and Street Maps for iPad, iPhone, Android, laptops, desktops — anything with a web browser.
Enflight suggests fuel-saving altitudes and giving you fuel prices, even as it provides you with VFR and IFR charts and approach plates, according to company officials.
Your own criteria for “Go-NoGo” decisions and plain-English weather briefings keep you safer; and now Enflight answers a traditional customer request for enroute charts and street maps, to help with your orientation and make ground references easier to spot.
“We wanted to enhance the pilot’s ability to quickly identify the roads below,” said Phillip Apley, president and lead developer, “and adding landmarks to the preflight plan makes the pilot’s load just that much lighter. This way, we can accommodate the VFR pilot who needs better visibility of roads while supporting the IFR pilot’s needs for ground reference points.”
Enflight allows you to print, email, or download your briefing and flight plan, plus all your charts (enroute, TACs, WACs, sectionals), with any of your data — TFRs, fuel pricing, radar, AIRMETs, etc. — and rubber-banding of routes is supported.
