Switch on TerrainSafe if you're flying in the mountains and the terrain in the background of the map will spring to life, showing you instantly the relative altitude of the terrain compared to your own. This feature has been described as life-saving, as if the weather closes in unexpectedly it can be crucial to pick the correct valley to fly down. Our GlideSafe feature can bring you comfort over the sea or in mountainous terrain by showing a rough circle around your aircraft indicating where you could glide in the event of an engine failure.
The SkyDemon charts are comprised of many individually-selectable layers and are therefore adjustable to your preferences. They even change as you zoom in and out, making sure the right features are displayed in the best possible way.
Arguably the most significant instrument in SkyDemon, virtual radar comes to life when you are in navigation mode. It continuously sends out virtual pings into our aeronautical data and presents the returns in a dedicated instrument at the bottom of the screen. It shows a real-time projection of your trajectory ahead relative to terrain, airspace, NOTAM, ground-based obstacles and other features. Your vertical speed is clearly represented, making it easy to see where your climb or descent will take you over time. In the background your planned route is visible, so you can see when it's time to begin a long climb or descent to achieve a specific level at a specific time.
If you're flying towards controlled or dangerous airspace you'll see a warning including advice on which service to call to gain penetration where available. We also include NOTAM warnings so you'll even be kept safe from temporary hazards which may only have been notified on the morning of your flight; things like aerobatics and military training. If you're flying at lower levels you'll appreciate our obstacle warnings.
A touch on the position reading takes you straight to the Live PLOG. This document is updated in real time with your progress through your planned journey. It shows your ETA at all future waypoints, and your ATA at waypoints you have passed. It shows the frequencies you might need based on your current position and altitude, including all Flight Information Services. It shows the radio services offered by all nearby airfields, all updated in real time.
Because the Live PLOG is much like the Pilot Log you will have used when planning your flight, you can use it to make changes to your route too. This can include taking a shortcut straight to a waypoint further on in your route because you have gained a clearance, or inserting a new waypoint between two others because you need to avoid something.
If you should have a sudden need to divert, you will bring up the Direct To feature. This quickly lists all nearby airfields with their longest runways, and at the touch of a button you can instantly plot a route directly to the destination of your choice. A valid NOTAM briefing will still be available even if you don't have an internet connection, because SkyDemon stores all NOTAM for the FIRs you will be flying in.
A wealth of documentation is available at your fingertips for every airfield, and especially your destination. Simply touch the information button next to the airfield to be taken to the Airfield Information screen, where you'll see the runway layout, frequencies, elevation, local weather, applicable NOTAM and available plates from the AIP and third-party publishers.
Many airfield plates include a richly detailed local map, either for approach or airfield diagram purposes. Most of these are georeferenced, which means you can embed them into your SkyDemon chart at the touch of a button and fly inside them. This is hugely beneficial for spacial awareness, and can help you make a textbook approach or navigate your way through a confusing system of taxiways once landed.
We supply charts for a number of countries and regions for use within SkyDemon, as listed below. Most of our charts are updated every 28 days, and are therefore typically much more accurate than printed charts. It's easy to install and uninstall charts as necessary, so to keep your software as speedy as possible we recommend only installing the charts you need.
Our charts are compiled from official data sources, supplemented by local knowledge and expertise where official sources are not available, such as smaller airfields and strips.
