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