    Nav Monster ?

    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.

    Try aopa.org (or their new FlyQ I-Pad/I-phone app). That has area weather, echo tops, winds aloft, etc.

    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.
    Huh. Well, they might be back soonish, I guess.

    Good call on the App. I don't know how I missed it before. I get every single publication from AOPA, and I haven't heard about this app. Where did you learn of it?

    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.
