New Voyager 4.0 Software

Voyager 4.0 is out and much improved. Faster and better display of data, and best of all it is free. Give it a try.

Voyager FreeFlight is an absolutely free, easy to use, basic flight planning system. It's based on the full Voyager system and includes many of the features of the full system but leaves out other features such as on-screen fuel prices, export to GPS devices, high performance and high altitude planning, etc. Once you have Voyager FreeFlight installed, you can add functionality by buying and turning on various modules.

Ride with the Blue Angels

In this short film "Flying Full Circle" is a 10-minute short film about living out a childhood dream. Filmmaker Brian J. Terwilliger's passion for aviation was sparked at an early age by seeing The Blue Angels perform, and that passion later became the genesis of One Six Right. It took 5 years of persistence to complete the film, which makes this invitation to fly with The Blue Angels a very special experience that came full circle.
