Aviation?s First Truly Integrated PC Software System Combines Powerful Pre-Flight and Enroute Planning Tools, Moving Map, Plates, and Weather into a Single Program. 

Innovative new Voyager Flight Software SystemTM morphs between tools, such as flight planner and moving map, based on the pilot?s phase of flight.

Oshkosh, WI ? July 23nd, 2005 - Seattle Avionics Software, Inc., the innovative aviation software company, today announced the release of the Voyager Flight Software SystemTM.  Combining superior technology, ease of use, and affordability, this one new product integrates all the tools pilots need, whether on the ground or in the sky.  Choose from Voyager?s GlassViewTM moving map, SmartPlanTM Premier flight planner, SmartPlan Express flight planner, SmartPlatesTM approach plate manager, and XM WX Weather, live, in-cockpit, weather.  Regardless of the components selected they all integrate into a seamless single application custom-tailored to each pilot?s needs.  As needs change, additional tools can be downloaded and integrated any time in the future.

Voyager is a state-of-the-art, fully integrated system unlike new ?suites? of old technology flight planning and moving map applications just bundled together.  Such solutions are awkward and require users to transfer data between individual applications, especially cumbersome in the cockpit.  And unlike expensive ?one-size-fits-all? solutions, the Voyager Flight Software System allows pilots to select only the tools and functionality they want and add more as their needs change. 

According to Steve Podradchik, Seattle Avionics Software CEO, ?Our mission has always been to use technology to make flying safer and more fun.  To that end, we feel we?ve broken new ground with the Voyager Flight Software System in that it automatically adapts 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.?

Seattle Avionics Software is the technological leader in aviation software.  Voyager is the only flight software written from the ground up with the Microsoft.Net Framework development tools, providing many significant advantages over competitive offerings.  This development environment allows true integration of pilot tools, such as a planner or moving map, into a single application.  It also allows updates to the Voyager program and additional innovative features to be rolled out more frequently, and offers seamless background Internet connectivity and multi-threading.  Voyager takes full advantage of Intel?s new HTTM (HyperThreading) technology.

Look for the GlassViewTM Moving Map/EFB announcement and press release on July 25th and Voyager?s XM WX Weather announcement and press release on July 27th.
