One of the most anticipated features of EasyVFR 4 without a doubt is our new SmartMap. Of course it is vector based and shows incredible detail until the very lowest zoomlevel. But the smart bit is that it fades airspaces that are not active at the time of your flight. It gives a very clean and easy map to work with.
At the feature page on our new website we have posted some examples of how the map gets cleaned up thanks to Smart Airspace Hiding functionality.

To be able to give a reliable indication wether an airspace is active or not, requires a connection with the local airspace managing authorities as well as current NOTAMs. Therefore the SmartMap is not yet ‘smart’ in every country.

Countries that are currently covered with certain level of SmartMap functionality are:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Czech Republic
  • Estonia
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Netherlands
  • Spain
  • Switzerland
  • Turkey
  • United Kingdom
Some countries we are still working on:

  • Finland
  • Norway
  • Sweden
  • Denmark

<<< Finland especially is a country that has an intimidating amount of temporary reserved airspaces, so we work hard to get this map cleaned up!

Finland is not alone. Many countries are covered with an extensive patchwork of temporary reserved and danger areas, that are often not active. With EasyVFR 4 we hope to make flying and navigating those countries much easier, especially for foreign pilots.

Did you know? When you want to try the Smart Airspace Hide feature, you have to enable the NOTAMs-on-Map feature first.

    Have loved using the current EVFR 3 and being involved with the link-up with the PilotAware system and now looking forward to even greater things.
