Feature Request - Radius around airport, navaid or fix
Any chance you could add the ability to create a radius or several radii around airports, navaids or other fixes. This would help in determining the choices of airports to fly to on cross country flights to meet FAA training requirements.

Perhaps integrate it into the
Perhaps integrate it into the Flight Plan feature? Some simple command like "+250NM" could paint a 250 NM ring from whatever airport/navaid/waypoint directly preceeds it. I've seen this feature request several times. It would be very useful for planning flight training x/c's from private to commercial.

Feature Request - Radius around airport, navaid or fix

I wanted to elevate this feature request again.  Runwayfinder had this feature before they went offline.  You could draw a circle x distance from an airport, navaid, waypoint or other coordinate.  It was great for drawing a distance around your home airport for finding airports that meet the Cross Country flight requirements for IFR / Private flight training.

Map Radius Example

Here's a site that does a nice job with this: http://obeattie dot github dot io/gmaps-radius/ (spam filter didn't like the full URL)

The author uses the Google Maps API, so I don't know how hard it would be to incorporate this to Skyvector, but it would be really helpful for selecting cross-country destinations. (Personally, I'm building XC time toward my instrument rating, so trying to do trips >50nm.)

Note to the author: Skyvector has become one of my most valuable destinations on the internet. Thanks for doing such a great job!

Drawing Grids

Hello,Just signed up.I'm a pilot and currently working as a Dispatcher.Occassionally,we get Notams where we plot grids/lines using the lats/longs but on paper.Do you think there's a feature that I may be overlooking which allows us to draw these on skyvector.com?

Any help would be welcome.

Cheers

Drawing Grids

@sliverbullet: You could build a URL that will draw your grid. Look at this example:

http://skyvector.com/?ll=41.5,-88.5&plan=G.41,-88:G.42.,-88:G.42.,-89:G....

The coordinates following "ll=" (those are lowercase L's) set the center of the displayed map. Everything after "plan=" describes waypoints in the plan. GPS coordinates begin with "G." and are separated by colons. (":").

I just drew a rectangle. If you convert your lat/longs into the decimal notation Skyvector uses you can describe any polygon you want.

You should note, however, that the owner of the site sells planning tools to commercial users. It would be proper to ask him if your intended usage requires a licensing fee.

Thank you,vancinad.

Thank you,vancinad.

Sorry for the late reply but there doesn't seem to be feature where one receives notifications on their email addresses about probable replies.

Tried out something similar.Just added co-ordinates in this fashion to the 'Flight Plan' option.

N27D43ME077D48M N27D25ME078D40M N27D13ME079D15M N27D12ME079D20M N27D00ME079D47M N26D51ME080D04M N25D48ME081D20M  N25D36ME081D18M N25D18ME081D18M N25D04ME080D16M  N25D02ME079D30M N25D02ME077D26M N27D12ME077D20M  N27D31ME077D28M  N27D43ME077D48M 

.

and out came a perfect grid.The issue with this is it doesn't allow me to draw multiple grids on the same page without linking them

Either I erase the previous one and draw the next one from scratch or I stand to link the next grid with the previous one with a line running from the last lat-long of the previous grid to the 1st lat-long of the next one.

 

Will keep looking for options.
