Google 3D Helicopter View.

Postby Helix » Tue Oct 4 2011, 03:24

For those who might like to preview whilst flight planning, Google have a new 3D version for you.

In keeping with the angular view change that goes with Google Earth the new 3D version gives a "Helicopter View".
You need to download and install the 'Google Earth' plug-in first.

From a blog on Google comes an explanation.

It makes for a more realistic way of previewing what to expect on your next VFR flight.
It brings to life the simple topographical map of a 2D nature, your ever-present on-board charts.

An example from Youtube.

All aids to a safer flight through diversity in flight planning. :D
