Interesting things you find out there on the www
While looking over myflightblog.com, I discovered yet another website that offers some truly marvelous 411 on aviation.
Skyvector.com serves up FAA charts that can be easily be panned, zoomed and searched to deliver the viewer to current chart info in an instant. Of course, these are not meant to replace real charts, but are a great way to look things over as you flight plan. People still do flight plan, don't they?
But the really groovy part is the little colored circles over the airports. Click on them and Skyvector serves up some very clean airport runway info and current METAR numbers..all in a nice, clean package. Only thing I’d like to have seen on their airport pages was frequencies…but I suspect that is coming.
