Projects / FlyWay


FlyWay is a navigational route planner for pilots. It allows the user to find and select waypoints (airports, navigational aids, and fixes), then calculates distances, courses, wind corrections, and times. Information about the waypoints is provided (including frequencies, elevation, fuel availability, and runway descriptions). The route data is also used to fill in an editable FAA Flight Plan form. FlyWay has an X11 GUI based on the PyQt library.
