VFR map and visual reporting points

#1 Post by Mark Mertz » Mon Feb 06, 2012 7:23 am

I wonder whether the Visual Navigation Chart 1: 250 000 for NZ is available for download in FSMaps.
Or the airodrome charts with the Visual Reporting Points. Or any other means of checking the VRP while on VFR.
In Germany/Switzerland we have a clever tool, which shows the reporting points on the garmin GPS with little blue circles and abreviated codes.

I would try to create something similar for NZ if nothing of the kind is already being used.What do you think?

PS: with the new scenery from ORBX is even more fun to fly in NZ. I couldn't believe it, but they have even included the small private landing strip for the Awaroa Lodge in Abel Tasman National park
