Eight years ago...
Foreflight added track-up.
are you saying track up is better than north up? if you are....
Track-Up is a heresy.
it's been all down hill from then
How much longer until they offer track-right?
It was a year ago today that someone exposed my tower crew to COVID and half of us had to stay home for a week.
Did you get it?
Track up is the correct way... That IS track RIGHT.
C'mon, track up worked for AAA "trip ticks"*
And, it's how we learned xc on a sectional....
Sheesh it's the ONLY WAY!
*Anybody remember those?
Speak for yourself
Well we did back in the day before headsets. When all we had was a mic and the overhead speaker... When we flew by water towers to make sure this was the checkpoint when we flew over..
Way back then....
LOL. I just saw the historical note from 8 years ago and felt like stirring the pot this morning. LOL
I do that just fine with the Chart sitting’ in my lap North up.
this belongs in the Medical subforum....... "I fly track up, will they take my medical away?
and the answer is, "they should"
Track up IS the right track.
I do! I remember as a kid going with Mom to AAA to pick them up before family trips. They were, perhaps, the earliest implementation of 'follow the magenta line'! Though I think AAA actually used yellow highlighters.
At the time of that first flight the prototype (c/n 23-01) was still known as the "Twin Stinson". The fuselage was steel tube with fabric covering; and the airplane had a twin tail. The initial engines were 125 hp with fixed-pitch props.
Soon the twin tail was replaced by the rounded vertical tail of the abandoned single-engine PA-6 Sky Sedan, power increased to 135 hp per side with feathering props, and an all metal fuselage was designed.
I got my AMEL-CFI in N4374P, a 160 hp Apache that had been the cover girl of the 1961 brochure. It wasn't quite so shiny when I got my hands on it ten years later. It was a sweet-flying, if underpowered, airplane, and I loved it. We called it the "Apathy".
Help. I can’t read upside down and when I rotate my IPad, it keeps staying upside down
This works ...
I would have never known. I have almost 72 years on Earth and maps have always been north up. I never saw any need to make LCD maps any differently.
Sorry, I always used my charts with North up. Books are read with the top up. Why would one even think of not reading a map or a chart with the top up?
Was this day more like 185 years ago.
Might be something need doing again
I fly with all my charts facing north up, just like God intended
Dern new fangled tech..... turns the world upside down.
Which way does FiveFlight use?
And that's when the fight started.
Then they added the high and low wing ownship icons. And the battle raged...
So, do track-uppers just suffer through reading all the chart labels upside down when they’re heading south-ish? That’s the part I never got.
I'm telling you, @Let'sgoflying! , more people than you think want to secede.
AFTER we promote our current leader to private citizen.
34 years ago yesterday (2 March) the F-8 Crusader (an RF-8) flew its final flight in US Navy service.
who doesn't care which way you hold your map
So for you all in the north-up camp... is that true north or magnetic north?
Better watch out, someone will tell mommy.
On this day in history, one year ago, I was honored to become a member of a fine group known world wide as P.O.A.
No, you were just reading the chart upside down.
