DRAFT In Flight Displaying the 2D View The 2D view provides a top-down view of the terrain and course of the aircraft, similar to a moving map display. The current filter view (VFR1/VFR2/IFR/App) will dictate whether the ground and navigation features such as obstacles, waypoints, and airspaces are displayed.
DRAFT In Flight Track Target Track Indicator Airport Lighted Obstacle Flight Plan Scale The course can be displayed by a track line. The length of the track line can be specified in the Display tab on the Setup dialog. An active flight plan or an instrument procedure is shown as a magenta line. The 2D view can be oriented with the track of the aircraft pointing up, or with north pointing up.
DRAFT In Flight Zooming and Panning in the 2D View AV8OR 3D provides the ability to zoom in/out on the 2D view in order to see close-in detail, or to get a larger image of the general flight area. There are two ways to zoom in/out when in either the Full 2D or Split 2D/3D view.
DRAFT In Flight There are three display options: • Track line is hidden. • Track line is straight, showing the actual heading of the aircraft. • Track line is curved, displaying the predicted trajectory of the aircraft. You can specify the length of the line in minutes of flight, nautical miles, or inches on the tablet PC screen.
DRAFT In Flight Airspace Airspace boundaries are shown as thick lines. Terminal airspaces boundaries are shown in blue, MOA in magenta, and special use airspaces in orange. When the aircraft is either close to the airspace, or inside the airspace, the interior of the airspace is shaded.
DRAFT In Flight Special use airspace Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) Retrieving Additional Information in the 2D View Summary and detail information about objects in the 2D view such as Controlled Airspaces, Airports and VORs may be obtained by pressing the object. This will bring up a summary information window next to the object.

DRAFT In Flight Track Indicator Bank Indicator Predictor Pitch Indicator Airport Intersec- tion If a flight plan or an instrument procedure is activated, a highway in the sky (HITS) is shown in magenta. Track Indicator in 3D View The track indicator is a band at the top of the 3D view. A yellow arrow represents the value of the magnetic track, and contains the numerical value in degrees.
DRAFT In Flight Artificial Horizon The artificial horizon display is a consolidation of the bank indicator and the pitch indicator. Each graduation on the bank indicator represents 10 degrees. The pitch indicator has graduations at every degree between +5 and -5 degrees, and a graduation at +10 and -10 degrees as well.
DRAFT In Flight Terrain Awareness (TAWS) The Terrain awareness function changes the color of the terrain according to the ground distance at the current altitude of the aircraft. Green terrain coloring means the aircraft is more than the set altitude above the terrain, yellow that the aircraft is above the terrain, but not more than the preset alert altitude, and red the aircraft is below the terrain.
DRAFT Navigating Navigating AV8OR 3D has four navigation modes: • Direct To • Radar Vectors • Flight Plan • Procedures Creating a Direct To The Direct To function is helpful for building a quick flight plan from the current location to a specific point. It can also be used to amend a flight plan. To Create a Direct To with a Flight Plan: When a flight plan (or an instrument procedure) is activated, select the type FPL.
DRAFT Navigating Select one of these waypoints, and press the Direct To button to make the flight plan act as if the next waypoint is the one selected. Creating a Direct To with an Airport Type When the airport type is selected, the central table displays a list of airports, including for each one its name, its bearing and its distance from the aircraft posi- tion, its elevation, and the longest runway length.
DRAFT Navigating Highlight the Direct To menu item and press ENTER to build and activate a direct flight plan from the current location of the aircraft to the highlighted airport. The Info button displays a page containing detailed information about the airport runways and frequencies, as well as additional remarks.
