Bringing Clarity to Flight Operations: a Rundown of Spidertracks’ VFR/IFR Charts Feature
When it comes to a product like Spidertracks, one of the biggest value-adding elements is the ecosystem in which that product operates. We’re talking not just the hardware and software themselves, but the added features that provide a comprehensive flight management solution for our customers — such as the Mark button, which makes it quick and easy to send messages from the cockpit to the ground, and the one we’re talking about today: VFR/IFR Charts.
VFR (visual flight rules) and IFR (instrument flight rules) use different types of maps — and with our VFR/IFR Charts feature, you and anyone watching your flight can view an aviation-specific overlay on top of your base map.
A free add-on that exists within the Spidertracks ecosystem and that’s available to any Spidertracks customer, VFR/IFR Charts allow pilots and flight followers to view airspace context alongside the real-time flight track. So in addition to knowing the exact location of the plane, you can use the VFR/IFR sectional overlays to review flight paths and possible airspace incursions.
As far as we’re concerned, the more knowledge you have about your aircraft and your daily operations, the safer you are, and that’s what our VFR/IFR Charts feature provides you with: more in-depth knowledge of your flight paths and a more comprehensive look at your flying patterns.
It’s yet another tool we offer to our customers that helps to boost operational situational awareness.
