Charts Plug-in for VISPRO
Add Digital FAA Sectional and Enroute Charts to the Moving Map
Display on VISPRO
The moving map display that’s part of Flight1 Tech’s Virtual Instructor Station Pro (VISPRO) lets you monitor a student’s flight in real time on a highly configurable aviation-themed map. The map presents all of the information relevant to the student’s flight, including the flight plan, the aircraft’s current location, and the aircraft’s flight track. A toolbar lets you toggle specific map elements on and off (such as airports, navaids, airways, holding patterns, and Special Use Airspace).
Instructors told us that when using VISPRO, they sometimes want to see the actual chart a student is referencing as they fly. That means looking over the student’s shoulder, or referencing a paper or tablet-based chart of their own. Having to look at the chart, then back to VISPRO to see the aircraft’s position, then back to the chart, can be cumbersome.
The Charts Plug-in for VISPRO brings digital charts right into the map display. By clicking the Charts icon on the toolbar, you can instantly change the default map display into one of three digital charts:
VFR Sectional chart
IFR Enroute Low Altitude chart
IFR Enroute High Altitude chart
The charts are digital versions of the FAA’s charts that have been georeferenced (associated with geographical coordinates) and cover the contiguous United States.
The charts can be zoomed in and out using toolbar buttons or the mouse wheel, and can be panned using the mouse.
When a digital chart is displayed, many of the default map elements are disabled, since those items appear on the charts themselves. Other VISPRO map items can still be displayed, such as the flight plan, flight path, virtual traffic, an approach profile, and flight data. The measuring tool, course plotter, and compass overlay are also available.
Periodic updates to the charts will be available for a small additional fee.
