Feedback

  • "A great source to review all radio communication skills in uncontrolled and controlled environments. 
  • Excellent Quick Reference by Thor from La Porte, IN Concise reference guide. Easy to look up and use. Spiral binding.
  • This is an excellent quick reference and a good book to have in your flight bag. I carry it in mine all the time. As a new pilot it is helpful to refer to the examples in the book when dealing with a busy towered airport environment.
  • What a great reference by Vidal from Prescott AZ - Glad I purchased, took the fear out of advanced instrument radio communications, but also cleared up some confusion I had about basic VFR pattern radio calls. Wish I had it sooner.
  • From a Customer from Ft Pierce FL - Very helpful for foreign students

Free 1st Class Mail ShippingVisi-Plotter - Simply the Best Flight Planning Plotter Made

This is the only VFR plotter invented by a CFI for pilots.  It includes innovative features that provides temperature conversion, flight planning scratch pad area, and a no-mistakes course protractor that even beginners won't be confused by.  It provides scales for sectional & WAC charts, and it even has inches & MM measurements.

The Most Accurate
The Visi-Plotter navigational plotter is created from a calibrated hot stamp.  It is the most accurate way to create a plotter.  No other plotter on the market uses this production method because its more expensive than the silk screen method used by every other manufacturer.

You'll pay no less than $21.95 to get a basic VFR plotter shipped from the typical online pilot store.  It won't include a tutorials on flight planning like Visi-Plotter.  It won't include online support like Visi-Plotter. Instead, get the original Visi-Plotter, helping pilots since 2000.  With Visi-Plotter, you'll get the best made plotter in the industry, a tutorial on flight planning, and online support.  Price $15 (Free Shipping to US addresses)  Sent First Class with Delivery Confirmation Tracking Number.  Upgraded shipping available, click the orange FREE shipping icon for more information.
