Keep all important graphs on one view including detailed approach graphs and landing report with export and replay functions including Google Earth export.
In this section you get an overview about all important aircraft parameters.
You can click on each of the graphs to show it maximized. Click on it again to revert it to normal size.
The first graph shows the current indicated and true airspeed.
Here the aircraft altitude above mean sea level (MSL) as well as above ground is displayed.
This graph shows the current vertical speed per minute.
And finally here the aircraft attitude is shown as bank and pitch angle.
Recording and Playback
At the bottom left you will find the recording and playback controls.
You can start and stop the live recording of aircraft data at any time. While the recording is stop you can use the playback controls to go through the recorded data easily. If you want to delete all recorded data and start all over again use the button
Clear All Flight Data.
Import and Export
Additionally you can import and export the flight data from respectively to a CSV file.
Export to Google Earth
Also an export to Google Earth is possible.
You can even choose if VORs, NDBs or waypoints should be exported as place marks additionally.
Note: The range around the flight path where VORs, NDBs and waypoints are included can be adjusted in the Settings#google_earth_export module.
After pressing the button
Export to Google Earth you can directly start Google Earth with the exported data as long as Google Earth is installed on the current computer.
Here you can see how your flight data will look like then when it is shown in Google Earth.
After you started an approach in the Position module in this section your approach will be tracked.
This section shows some details about the current approach like the airport, runway and some visibility information.
After the approach has been completed and the aircraft is landed, this landing report shows detailed information about how well the landing was.
The localizer deviation graph shows the horizontal deviation from the runway localizer (center of the runway) on your approach.
If the graph line goes to the top of the graph the aircraft is left from the localizer and if the line goes to the bottom the aircraft is right from the localizer.
On the lower approach graph the current aircraft altitude above mean sea level (MSL) as well as the ground altitude is shown.
The yellow straight line shows the ideal glideslope.
If the runway is ILS enabled the correct runway-specific glideslope degree will be used. Otherwise the default of 3° will be used.
