Seattle Avionics Software Announces The New GlassViewTM

Moving Map/EFB Component to the

Voyager Flight Software System.

GlassViewTM combines the latest hybrid Internet software technology, ease of use, and the unique and powerful features introduced in the acclaimed Voyager Premier Flight Planner to produce an innovative in-cockpit moving map software tool.

 Oshkosh, WI ? July 25th, 2005 ? Seattle Avionics Software today announced the launch of GlassViewTM Moving Map/EFB software.  GlassView is the latest component tool for the new Voyager Flight Software System.  Pilots can select any or all of Voyager?s new components:  SmartPlanTM Premier flight planner, SmartPlan Express flight planner, GlassView moving map, SmartPlatesTM, instrument procedure management program with Part 91-compliant FAA (NACO) digital approach plates, or XM WX Weather, live, in-cockpit weather.  Regardless of which components are selected, they all automatically integrate into a seamless single application custom-tailored to each pilot?s needs.

 One of GlassView?s most innovative features is its ability to automatically adapt to pilots? needs as their situation changes with phases of flight.  For example, in addition to showing basic GPS information, Voyager?s GlassView moving map keeps you safe by automatically displaying nearest airport, navaid and airspace information as your position changes and shows detailed airport and procedure information as you approach your destination.  Not just the data, but also which type of data is displayed, and the program?s actual layout all change, (?morph?) automatically as a flight progresses. 

GlassView always shows flight critical data while the GPS positioned plane moves across geo-referenced charts to give pilots unmatched situational awareness during enroute and approach operations.  When integrated with SmartPlates, GlassView also provides crisp, digital Part 91 compliant NACO terminal and approach procedures for all 50 states.  When GlassView is integrated with Voyager?s SmartPlan Premier flight planner, one click toggles from flight planning mode into enroute/moving map mode. 

When GlassView?s easy to use interface and phase-of-flight intelligence is combined with the power of Voyager Flight Planner?s SmartRouter, you have a truly unique and powerful combination unparalleled in the aviation industry.  When XM WX Weather and SmartPlates are integrated with GlassView, you have better functionality than a glass cockpit on your kneeboard for a fraction of the initial and ongoing cost of panel-mount systems. 

As Robert Hamilton, Seattle Avionics Software V.P. of Marketing puts it; ?We avoided making an interface that just duplicated old technology, and created a whole new look that maximizes usability, providing the most information in the easiest, most accessible format.?

Current Voyager Premier customers will receive the GlassView Moving Map/EFB component free of charge with their current annual NavData subscription.
