along the path, ahead of you ever depart the ground. This one particular planning activity could
maintain you proper out the boxed in circumstance above. Add a handful of legs to the flight path
and take a brief detour about any kind of terrain your airplane is unable to climb more than.

spot exactly what airspace lies ahead. Wise Airspace instantly highlights airspace close to your
current altitude and de-emphasizes airspace away from the actual altitude, which provides you
elevated situational awareness.

diagrams and place info for additional than 950 U. S. airports. Preloaded on the model, this details
