    What happened to the satellite view and the pictures of the airports? That was pretty helpful when it came to locating the gas pumps beforehand. I guess they got rid of them..not the pumps, the pictures.

    They had the sectional (world) view, the world lo view and then a satellite view and most had pictures taken from pilots who'd been there. The pictures were on the right below the gas prices. The satellite view was below the world lo view.

    Some satellite views have been removed from what I can tell, they were links that would open up in google maps anyway. But definitely was helpful. The pilot pictures are still there

    I haven't looked at that lately but I would miss that. I love pilotage as a means of VFR navigation and I would always use skyvector to plot my course and take a look at the satellite view of my visual checkpoints.

    I liked that feature too. Wondering if it was a licensing issue?

    Define wonky. I tried yesterday to look up airports in Oahu and got 59 airports, none in Oahu.

    Yep, wasn't working for me from about 1400Z, then came back up about 5 hours ago and has been fine since. Some kind of failure on their end, but corrected now.

    I haven't been able to save new flight plans nor save edits to previously created flight plans.

    Yes, logged in. But, you gave me an idea, and I just tried US routes, and it saved. Now fiddling with my normal routes.
