Jared Aicher, Pilot for
The Eagle Flight, Chooses Voyager Flight Planner from Seattle Avionics Software
as the Official Software for his round-the-world attempt.
Seattle, WA ? May 27, 2005?Seattle
Avionics Software, Inc., the innovative aviation software company, announced
today that it?s flagship product, Voyager Flight Planner, has been selected as
the official flight planner for Jared Aicher?s round-the-world project called
The Eagle Flight. Voyager?s unique ability to determine the optimal route for a
flight, taking winds aloft into account prior to planning, is one of its many
innovative features not available in any other GA flight planner. When
combined with its intuitive, easy-to-use interface and ?SmartWeather?
technology, it was an ?easy choice for the job? according to Aicher.
children's dreams of flight are never realized due to the high costs of
operating an aircraft or a lack of local resources to spark an interest in
aviation,? says Aicher. The goal of The Eagle Flight is to help children around
the world realize their dreams of flight, get them into the cockpit, and
register each one as an EAA Young Eagle member.
Flight Project was founded by Jared Aicher, along with an international team of
experts from Canada in early 2004 with a goal to register over 400 young
aviation enthusiasts from around the world with the Experimental Aircraft
Association's (EAA)Young Eagles Program. The Young Eagles Program, led by actor
Harrison Ford, was developed by the EAA to spark an interest in aviation among
the planet's youth and keep it alive. To date, pilots from around the world have
donated their time, money, and aircraft to launch over one million children into
the air, through this program.
dream of sharing flying with 400 young people is supported by such industry
leaders as Dick and Burt Rutan, of SpaceShipOne and Scaled Composite, Sir
Richard Branson of Virgin Atlantic Airways, as well as governmental state
journey Jared will be handing out full version copies of Voyager Flight Planner
to each of the 400 young eagles he?ll be flying compliments of Seattle Avionics
Software. Jared will autograph the special edition copy, which will open a
pre-built flight plan of ?The Eagle Flight? path around the country enabling all
the Young Eagles to be able to study his route on their computers at home and
even check ?live? weather along the way.
Avionics? Voyager is flight planning software that is out of this world?, says
Eagle Flight Pilot Jared Aicher. ?Not only does the software help plan our
route, but it automatically downloads the most current NOAA weather information
to determine the best altitudes based on wind speeds while taking terrain along
the entire route into account. All this happens automatically through the
convenience of your PC?s existing internet connection.?
