Announcing New Voyager? FreeFlight?, the Perfect Upgrade from Other Free Flight Planners

Seattle, WA May 12, 2006.  Seattle Avionics Software announces the immediate availability of new Voyager FreeFlight.  Voyager FreeFlight is a completely free yet powerful and easy-to-use flight planner based on the award-winning Voyager Flight Software System.  Voyager FreeFlight works whether connected to the Internet or not; it shows flight over terrain; it automatically downloads current weather, NavData and TFRs; and it comes complete with more than 160 aircraft profiles.

The software can be downloaded from Seattle Avionics Web site at

New Voyager FreeFlight is a streamlined version of the Voyager Flight Software system that retains many of the powerful features of the full Voyager product and is faster and even easier to use.  These features include both Victor and GPS Direct autorouting, a profile view that shows your flight over terrain, automatic background weather downloads, various weather overlays including NexRad radar and altitude-sensitive cloud tops (satellite images), full DUAT briefings, kneeboard printouts, electronic flight plan filing, and much more.

In addition, users can test-drive any feature of the full Voyager Flight Software System with a click of the mouse.  Users even can instantly upgrade to the full Voyager Flight Software System without downloading or installing anything new so they lose no investment of time or learning as their needs grow.  These additional features, called Modules, include the SmartPlates IFR Procedure Management module, the GlassView moving-map module, and SmartPlan advanced flight planning modules.

?Given the rising cost of 100LL, we thought that pilots could use something for free -- a free upgrade from the flight planner they're currently using,? said Steve Podradchik, CEO.  ?We want to introduce the majority of pilots to what comprehensive flight planning can do while keeping things quick and simple.  With FreeFlight, we think we?ve found a great combination of price, features, and ease of use that will appeal to almost every pilot.?
