Visual Pilot Guides
OnTrack, CASA's pre-flight visualisation tool for VFR pilots, now includes all the location-specific information previously in the Visual Pilot Guides (VPG). OnTrack includes not only the five VPG locations, but eight new Class D aerodromes.
OnTrack is a VFR pre-flight visualisation tool for both fixed- and rotary-wing pilots, this interactive online pre-flight planning tool utilises hundreds of high resolution photographs of approach points, reporting points and runway holding points. OnTrack is also coupled with text and videos to demonstrate how to operate safely in and around controlled airspace.
The program’s new features include visual terminal chart information interactively overlayed on Google maps, airspace infringement hot spots and aerodrome-specific information including runway hotspots.
Just some of the new video features include in-depth interviews with local air traffic controllers, fixed- and rotary-wing chief flying instructors and CASA aviation safety advisors. These videos also cover VFR operations, ground operations and weather for each location.
OnTrack replaces the VPGs-it can be readily updated and includes printable flight notes which feature images, frequencies, headings and aerodrome maps.
OnTrack is a practical tool for your flight preparation and you must use it in conjunction with thorough route planning. Always check ERSA, NOTAMs and the weather before you fly.
