FliteStar IFR - The Premier Desktop Flight Planner!
All three versions: VFR, IFR, and Corporate FliteStar revolutionize desktop flight planning with extraordinary graphics, superior routing algorithms, blazing speed, and much more - all contained within an incredibly easy-to-use interface. The amazing vivid colors and high definition make FliteStar's customizable maps a cut above the competition.
FliteStar IFR v9.0 is the world's leading desktop flight planner! It includes
all of the features of FliteStar VFR and Jeppesen's exclusive VectorPlus mapping
technology and vector chart themes, which offer Jeppesen low and high altitude
enroute chart emulations as well as user-customizable charts. FliteStar's chart
filtering features allow you to select which chart items are depicted.
Intelligent chart de-clutter automatically minimizes label overwrite, making
charts easier to read. FliteStar's GPS-direct router avoids airspace vertically
as well as laterally, when asked to do so. Integrated terrain data makes your
planning easier and more complete by displaying the color-coded elevation
information in both the planview and profile views.
Weather animation capabilities allow Jeppesen weather images, including
satellite and radar images, to be shown in moving sequence, thus depicting
weather trend information.
And, with release v9.0, cloud bases are automatically shown in the profile view
when your weather briefing is complete.
FliteStar takes full advantage of Windows 32-bit technology allowing you to
customize your screen layout. You can adjust your display to show just a single
chart, multiple charts, toolbars, and information bars, or anything in between.
FliteStar v9.0 IFR includes all of the charting, display, and planning features
described here and more:
- TFR view and avoid information directly from the FAA

Complicated user interface and missing features
by Gerhard Sontheimer from Hamburg, Germany
Pros: Integrates well with JeppView, does basic flight planning
Cons: Many features for legal flight planning are missing
Review: The route planning is nice, but lacks some features, that are essential for VFR: Altitudes can only be entered in a special dialog called "Route Calculator", but not during the planning process with the vector map itself. There is no Flight Log (Jeppesen calls it Navigation Log) in the Interface itself, only a tree view of the route called "Route Pack List" without all the waypoint specific data like ALT, SALT, WV, GS etc. Safe Altitudes can not be entered anywhere. In consequence the printed NavLog itself lacks some essential data like safe Altitudes and Wind Vectors. There is a minimalistic "Weight and Balance" but no "Fuel Management" or "Take-Off and Landing Distance" Calculation. In Summary: With the information given by FliteStar alone one can not legally fly in German Airspace.
