The background map is also known as the “moving map” and it will be our “place of work” when we are flight-planning.


Quick access to additional options are possible by right-clicking on the moving map.

The moving map supports:

  • Waypoints
  • Airspaces
  • Maps of different sources:
    • Free ground maps
    • ICAO charts
    • Public domain maps
    • Geo-referenced approach charts
  • METAR/TAF Stations
  • NOTAM info
  • Obstacles

Note that the map background comes with no map installed. You should download a map or maps from the Map Store module.

You can interact with most of the items on the moving map by clicking on each. As a consequence, a pop-up window will show on the screen with details about the item.


You can move along the moving map by panning the screen to a desired direction and a route can be created selecting the waypoints and adding them to the route list.


The map options and filters will be accessible from the Map TAB

located on the right side of the screen.

For more details on how to use these filters, refer to the article Map TAB.
