Anyone know what happen with Nav Monster. They've been off line for a week. Are there any other sites out there like them ? It was a great site for X country planning with weather.
Sky vector does not have weather I don't think.
Only where you see the colored dots.
Try aopa.org (or their new FlyQ I-Pad/I-phone app). That has area weather, echo tops, winds aloft, etc.
Huh. Well, they might be back soonish, I guess.2012-04-22 Update: After long and drawn out negotiations, our hosting company booted us for consuming too many CPU cycles. NavMonster performs a serious amount of trigonometry to calculate all the airports/weather/TPPs/AFDs/TFRs/PIREPs/NOTAMs/etc along the great circle route. Moving this massive infrastructure to another server is a time consuming process. Thanks for all the encouragement and support, please stay tuned.
I can't speak for him, but I saw a note in one of the Flight Training magazines I get from month to month.
Also, check out enflight.com -- they have a free sampling that's good enough for most day-to-day use.
AOPA did a pretty good job getting the word out on this, IMO. It's on their website right up front, it's in their e-newsletter, and it's in Flight Training. Not sure where else they could put it....
It could be just that it's very new, and you just haven't heard yet. It's essentially a big part of the AOPA flight planner, which many of us use anyway. Except it fits on portable hardware.
