Free Flight Planner - Voyager

 DTC DUAT and Seattle Avionics, Inc., announce new DUAT Voyager, a 100% free flight planner that makes it quick and easy to plan flights, obtain weather briefings, and file flight plans. While it downloads weather and TFR information from the Internet, it is not an Internet-based flight planner, and is not subject to the recently publicized FlightPrep patent. It's based on the powerful Voyager Flight Software System that consistently wins Best Flight Planner from Aviation Consumer.

Greenville Downtown Airport - Lunch Flight 12-24-2010

Bucky Hanna and Bill Como at the restaurant located on the field of Greenville Downtown Airport. 12-24-2010

Had a nice flight over to Greenville Downtown airport this afternoon.  Got to use my new Skymap2 GPS flight bag. Worked real good.  Has all the charts, VFR and IFR in it along with all the IFR approach plates.  Still waiting on the yoke mount for it.  Has a large screen so you can read it easily even with out glasses.  Skypad2 Slate is made by Seattle Avionics, and this one came with lifetime free updates for all charts and plates. All the screens can be move and or re-sized. All charts and plates are Geo-referenced. When you shoot a approach, it places the plane right over the approach plate. Cool factor, is 10.
