* What Flight Simmers Say about CoPilot

"I am a 2800+ hour, multi-engine IFR rated pilot. CoPilot is the best program I have ever seen for flight sims. Thanks for publishing it." from M.R. via the Internet

"CoPilot is a GREAT add-on. Being able to print nav charts, airport layouts, and ILS approach plates is fantastic. FS has attempted to build some of this functionality via their flight planning and world map, but (not quite up to) what you guys offer. The Abacus GPS and moving map really make FS come alive..." from D.A. via the Internet

"...my recent purchase of CoPilot is an absolutely excellent value. Being unfamiliar with both the program itself and Abacus, I was certain that I was basically buying an inexpensive add-on that may or may not do what it promised. I was very surprised to initially find a manual that was both very well written...Additionally the presence of a GPS has opened a new dimension to Flight Simulator that will enable me to explore places and do things that would have otherwise never occured." from R.B. via the Internet

"The product is very good. I have been actually flying for some 27 years now and the GPS/planning software is the best I have used of all the flight sim software I have tested." from J.L. via the Internet

"On turning onto my last beacon I was lined up with the airport. (CoPilot) helped me to achieve a near-perfect flight. Thanks. " from B.M. via the Internet

"I would not even think about running Flight Simulator without CoPilot.", D.S. via the Internet

Flight Planning
Using the FSX or FS2004 Flight Planner, you can prepare a flight from Chicago O'Hare (KORD) to London Heathrow (EGLL) flying IFR and using Jet Airways and you'll see a routing similar to this one. Using the CoPilot Flight Planner, you can prepare the same flight but you'll be routed along a very different path. The flight plan is about 2400 NM shorter than the one to the left and take you on a much less circuitous flight. Think of all the fuel that you'll save!

Flight from Chicago O'Hare to London Heathrow

The CoPilot flight planner produces efficient and flexible routings to your destination.

All CoPilot flight plans are fully compatible with Flight Simulator X and 2004. Additionally, your flight plan may include any of the published approaches available at your destination airport.

Using CoPilot's very capable GPS instrument (included), this flight plan can fly your aircraft to your destination runway all the way down to decision height.

If you're one of those who like to tweak, you can alter the flight plan by inserting or removing waypoints on the map with click and point ease. The changes to the routing on the map are then instantly reflected in your flight plan.

 


Printed Maps

To wrap up your pre-flight preparations, you'll want to gather your reference material.

For a graphical view of your route, you can print an aeronatutical chart of the flight area. CoPilot displays not only the airports and navigation aids, but also shows the roads (USA), air spaces, lakes, rivers and other bodies of water and geopolitical boundaries.

In the chart to the right, you can see that the area marked in dark blue represents restricted air space. The air space is a military training area used by aircraft stationed at Oceana Naval Air Station (KNTU) located southeast of the Norfolk (KORF) airport and is almost entirely offshore in the Atlantic Ocean.

To control the amount of information on a chart, you can choose to display or hide any of the these: airports, VORs, NDBs, fixes, jet airways, victor airways, air spaces.



Printed Flight Plan, Airport and Taxiway Diagrams and Approach Plates

Before starting your engine, you'll want to print your flight plan.

To continue, you'll want to know the layout of the departure and destination airports. You may also want to print a taxiway diagram to help you find your way around a busy unfamilar airport after you land.

You'll also want to print one or more approach plates for the destination runways.

CoPilot's printing capabilities is equivalent to hundreds of dollars worth of flight charts. And because CoPilot works with all of your add-on scenery, your charts will reflect your exact Flight Simulator setup.

For your convenience, you can use CoPilot's print "Airport Package" to print complete sets of airport and taxiway diagrams and apporach plates for any flight simulator airport.


CoPilot's EZ-GPS Instrument

Don't let the term EZ-GPS fool you. This instrument is easy to use, but it handles complex tasks effortlessly.

Drop this sophisticated gauge into any of your aircraft and it's guaranteed to make your navigation chores much simpler. Since EZ-GPS installs instantly, you can be on your way to any destination in the world in just seconds.

EZ-GPS Map Page

The map page provides a crystal-clear moving map so you'll always know your position. The map depicts geopolitical boundaries and shows the major roadways (USA), lakes, and rivers. The map also shows the airports and navaids including, VORs, NDBs, fixes, airways and air spaces. The scale in instantly changable with zoom in/out.

As you fly, you can display information for any of the navaids.

To the right is the information for a typical VOR.

 


EZ-GPS Aviation Page

The aviation page is used to aid in navigation.

The page consists of a status display, aircraft speed tape, aircraft altitude tape, a compass display, and a course deviation indicator (CDI).

When following a route or using the OBS feature the CDI indicates how far from the aircraft is from the course line.



EZ-GPS Traffic Page

This traffic page displays the relative horizontal positions of nearby aircraft traffic. The display is always oriented with the heading of your aircraft at the top.

Two range rings help in judging how far the traffic is from your aircraft. The radius of the outer range ring is shown in the lower left corner of this display. The range can be increased or decreased with the ZOUT and ZIN keys respectively.

Nearby traffic is displayed with one of the following symbols:
