I’ve been using an iPad app called CloudAhoy which allows me to record the GPS information throughout a flight and play it all back on a computer. The most fun is to choose the “cockpit view” which uses Google Earth to re-create what I would have seen out the window (without clouds or darkness). I then play back the entire flight at 10X real speed so that a 90 minute flight can be watced in nine minutes. Click here for a link to replay today’s flight from Hinesville, GA up to the Piper repair station in Rock Hill, SC. Try playing with the different views and speeds. It’s fun!
