ChartAware App

 

This first release version (1.0) included further content changes/enhancements beyond those found in the beta version and is a powerfully loaded application that allows users to access a tremendous amount of information and to overlay flight tracks on not only FAA Published Navigation charts, but also a host of other charts/maps e.g. a street map, topography map, etc.  When version 1.1 is released, a downloadable version to be used as an overlay with popular flight navigation applications will be operational.  Your Comments Are Invited!  Just send your input to SCAUWG@EARTHLINK.NET  ChartAware has been developed via the vision of Cartographer Mike Carson and Ron Berinstein.

Version 1.1 is now released!       - Use With ForeFlight.
