Flight Explorer Adds IFR Routes


Flight Explorer, the popular flight-tracking software company, announced an upgrade in capabilities this week with the release of Professional Edition 6.1. The new version offers extended route analysis and display capabilities and additional weather information, the company said in a news release. Beyond flight tracking, the system incorporates multiple data feeds, dynamic weather overlays, situational alerts and predictive weather and air traffic tools. For IFR flight planning, Standard Instrument Departures (SIDs) and Standard Terminal Arrival Routes (STARs) can be displayed. Decoded Terminal Forecasts are now available. Also, users can now attach formatted text notes to any aircraft or airport. “With Release 6.1 we are continuing to add key features and enhancements that improve the decision-support capability of our Aircraft Situational Display,” said Flight Explorer CEO Jim Kelly. “These new tools make Flight Explorer an even more valuable component of our customers’ flight operations centers.”
