Using the Aeronautical Information Management tools developed by the company ASA srl (Italy), RouteFinder offers a powerful set of tools aimed at effective flight planning (on PC flight simulation envinronment only!), by increasing awareness of airspace and route structure, and giving a good picture of the flight environment.
RouteFinder's data coverage is worldwide, with more detailed informations (e.g. list of services at airports) available for selected areas (at this moment - Italy). A word of warning - the RouteFinder database IS NOT the same database used in "Real word Flight Planning" products by ASA srl. It may be *DANGEROUS* to fly in real world with the data provided by this service!
The system is continually being updated as additional modules are completed.
Current completion status of the system:
|Auto-Routing||Active (at the moment it is almost the same as the free area, with minor algorithm tweaks)|
|Route Editing||NOT YET OPERATIVE|
|Aircraft Performance calculations||NOT YET OPERATIVE|
|FMS Export||Plain text, SquawkBox, Flight Simulator 200X, FSNavigator, PMDG 737, X-Plane 7.30, Wilco's 767 PIC / Level-D 767|
|Charting||Ability to create SVG charts (Enroute-chart style) of any area of the globe. Each graphical feature is linked to the database (see below), so that with a mouse click it is possible to reveal more detailed informations.|
Current limitations - big maps (e.g. entire Europe) may not be practical to plot with all information layers selected (performance considerations of the SVG Viewer).
|Database||Ability to query the aeronautical database for: Airports, VOR/DME, NDB, Waypoints, FIR/UIR, PRD zones, Other restrictions, Airways, TMA/CTR/ATZ.|
|NOTAM||Ability to query the NOTAM database (e.g. to know all applicable NOTAMs for an airport, FIR, or to search for particular text / NOTAM number)|
The system is already available upon activation of a subscription at the price of 15 EUR for 6 months.
