Enroute charts

Post by detpilot » 19 Dec 2009, 21:48

Hey guys, thought I'd share this with you. If you're looking for real life enroute (Both low and high altitude), or VFR sectional/TAC charts, then check out www.skyvector.com. You can punch your route in, or just type in a city, and select between the different charts that are available. Scroll around, measure distance, know where that random fix that Vatsim ATC gives you, and in general fly more realistically! :)

Seen the site before but had absolutely no idea it could create flight plans like that...and so well too! Thanks Brandon!

Love that site and the new ability to use their maps on FlightAware is fantastic.

On the same note...I just joined the AOPA and they have some awesome flight planning and airport directory resources as well. Stuff that's along the same line I suppose.
