Here's a special flight planning tool we really like. A colorful little plotter with a rotating azimuth that makes it much easier to plot a course line. Place the compass rose over your departure point and rotate the straight edge towards destination. Presto!An instant readout of your course! Reads distance in statute miles or nautical miles for both sectional & WAC charts. Made of bullet proof Lexan. Wont crack, break, or warp in extreme heat or cold.
I have had this exact type since 1995. Seriously, the very same one. It is unbreakable and works perfectly to easily and readily old school plot on the paper charts. Much easier to utilize than the ones often included in flight kits. When working to get the student's eyes out of the cockpit the less time it takes to plot a new route the better. Highest recommendation.
