i have used this since 1995

  • By peter from Batavia NY USA on Monday, March 12, 2018
  • Pros:
  • Review: Quite complex but has many features. I am still learning features. I use it for Part 135 flight planning it is great for preflight planning and flight plan filing.

What a waste of code

  • By Gary from Los Altos CA USA on Friday, November 06, 2015
  • Pros: You get maps, but you can get the extact same at Skyvector for free
  • Review: Does almost nothing. Very hard to use and requires multiple logins just to use it. I'm not that happy with voyager from Seattle Avionics, but I may go back.
    Big mistake buying this.

Overpriced

  • By David from Farmington, NM on Monday, March 10, 2014
  • Pros:
  • Review: I find it hard to use, had an older version, hoped the newest version would be better easier to use but I find it not so

difficult to use

  • By jon from washoe valley NV USA on Monday, October 12, 2009
  • Pros: a good great circle route
  • Review: Hard to view smaller portions for details.

I like it, it's very easy to use

  • By David from Raleigh NC USA on Tuesday, August 19, 2008
  • Pros: Very Easy
  • Review: Very user-friendly software. Been enjoying it alot with my flight simulator game. One area is hard is to change the VOR setting to the game setting. Other than that I like the route maps I can print. Thanks again for a great software. Keep up the good work!!!

Does almost everything.

  • By Rick from Chino, CA on Friday, April 11, 2008
  • Pros: Maps, space, airport information, weather and price is great.
  • Review: I have owned VFR Flite Star and Flite Map for about four years and have found it to be an exceptional product. I use the update service and have it on my Motion Computer, as well as my desk top. It may not be simple to learn, but any complex program that does a lot just is not easy to use. I really don't like to fly without it. Knowing eactly where you're at and going is a comfort. Yes, a Garmin 530W might do a better job for some, but not for my money. Flite Map has been discontinued for FliteDeck, which is far more expensive and designed for IFR.

Jip-esen FlightStar

  • By Texas Cross Country Flyer from Central Texas on Monday, March 17, 2008
  • Pros: From a long- established company
  • Review: I purchased this more than a year ago and have found the learning curve excessive in regard to excessive features I really need. One of my biggest complaints is trying to get an online update. It isn't an easy process and I threw in the towel. When I plan a long cross country flight, I would like to make adjustments to the plan that FlightStar computes. This is nearly impossible to divert to another airport from the plan FlightStar renders. In addition, I own a Cessna 150-160. My tiny bird has a gass guzzeling 160 horespower Lycoming engine, not the whoosie 100 pony Continental. Since I have the standard tanks, I really can't plan going more than an hour and a half before needing to land and refuel. The software has many default airplanes in it's database, but I find it difficult to adjust the fuel planning for my needs, since my hybrid-Cessna isn't in their mix of airplanes. At the bottom of the screen (after you have plugged in your departure airport and destination airport) is a graphical representation of the altitude you will fly at (the software does ask you what altitude you want to fly at) but the graphic is difficult to understand, especially when you zoom out, zoom in or go North or South or East or West of the map representation. I also wish this software did a better job of showing highways and roads. I spent a lot of time flying with my father in "big-iron" flying IFR and these days I simply like to fly low, and this software simply looks more like what a jet-jocky would be happy with, not some lowly guy like me flying a Cessna. I won't be buying their update. I will be buying someone else's product in the next several days.
