Personalize FltPlan’s Web Based Map Builder with Default Settings
By now you should be familiar with FltPlan’s proprietary Map Builder, but did you know you can set defaults for it? Utilizing the Map Builder default settings has a variety of benefits. Choosing your default background map, map layers, weather layers, route options and METAR information allows you to save time in your flight planning. Select from more than 20 defaults. For example, you can choose to have state outlines, fuel prices, SIGMETs/AIRMETs, METARs, winds aloft, or have your route line displayed with a specific width and color. When selecting Map Builder from your NavLog, the winds aloft data is pre selected for your altitude. Map Builder can be personalized to fit your flight planning needs. Selecting your map settings on a one-time basis makes your job quicker and easier down the road.
