FltPlan’s New Web-Based Map Builder

Our Map Builder will change the way you view your route displayed on a map. Take your flight plan and display your route with winds aloft, TFRs, SIDs & STARs, NEXRAD weather radar, and user-defined, color-coded METARs. By simultaneously viewing the planned route of your aircraft with current conditions, you’ll have the predictive information you need on a single map to fly more safely.

Experience our Map Builder by creating your flight plan. From your NavLog, select any of the following map tabs: Imagery, Sectionals, Jet Airways, and Victor Airways to access the Map Builder. Build your user-defined default specifications so when your route appears on the map, it’s personalized to meet all your flight planning needs. This can be up to 12 different background maps, 11 map layers, and 5 possible weather layers as well as route view options ranging from the color of your route line to its opacity. Directional, color-coded wind arrows will appear indicating the winds at the set altitude of your flight. This is one of the many ways in which FltPlan’s Map Builder can be made your own.

The Map Builder can be accessed from any device – desktop, tablet, phone or laptop. With FltPlan, there is no need to pay for costly licenses. FltPlan provides free visual and IFR charts for the U.S. and Canada for use on as many devices as you'd like.
