FliteStar IFR v9.0 is the world's leading desktop flight planner! It includes all of the features of FliteStar VFR and Jeppesen's exclusive VectorPlus mapping technology and vector chart themes, which offer Jeppesen low and high altitude enroute chart emulations as well as user-customizable charts. FliteStar's chart filtering features allow you to select which chart items are depicted. Intelligent chart de-clutter automatically minimizes label overwrite, making charts easier to read. FliteStar's GPS-direct router avoids airspace vertically as well as laterally, when asked to do so. Integrated terrain data makes your planning easier and more complete by displaying the color-coded elevation information in both the planview and profile views.
Weather animation capabilities allow Jeppesen weather images, including satellite and radar images, to be shown in moving sequence, thus depicting weather trend information.
And, with release v9.0, cloud bases are automatically shown in the profile view when your weather briefing is complete.
FliteStar takes full advantage of Windows 32-bit technology allowing you to customize your screen layout. You can adjust your display to show just a single chart, multiple charts, toolbars, and information bars, or anything in between.
