"NO EXCUSE FOR FLYING WITHOUT A SECTIONAL"
November 23 2007 Bluemont, VA ED/iT's Aviation Products Division announces a
revolutionaly concept in aviation charting and safety. Our
eSectionalstm Limited Edition provided pilots one Sectional
for a full year for an ANNUAL subscription fee of $14.95. Our new service changes
this Limited Edition into eSectionals HOMEBASE Edition.
eSectionals HOMEBASE Edition removes the ANNUAL $14.95 subscription
fee with a ONE TIME $15 software Licensing fee. After
installing the software, the pilot selects and downloads their "HOME BASE Sectional".
From that day foward, until the end of their flying career, they will be able to
download their "Home Base Sectional" at no cost. For 75% of General Aviation pilots,
this may be the only chart they ever use and they never have to purchase the paper version
again. The HomeBase Edition permits a pilot to purchase additional Sectionals for $5 and
Terminal Area Charts (with VFR Flyways) for $4 (half the cost of paper). And, unlike pilot
shops with inventory, if a pilot is about to purchase a Sectional or TAC that is about to
expire, it is provided at HALF PRICE. Why are we taking this beating? We're pilots too
and are doing our best to provide FAA Legal Charts at a reasonable price. But eSectionals
is not just "charts".
Our eSectionalstm software uses high-resolution digital charts provided to us
directly from the FAA's National Aeronautical Charting Office. eSectionals is a powerfull
and aviation dedicated product enabling the pilot to measure distance and course with a
simple mouse click. Drawing a route within or across multiple charts is easy.
After drawing a route, the pilot can use either the Automatic or Manual TripKit Build feature
which steps along the route, extracting "frames" containing the route and then can print
a TripKit. No more folding four foot charts in flight. They can also export the TripKit to
any PDA for in-flight viewing.
If you are a Limited Edition subscriber, you are automatically "grandfathered"
into the new HomeBase Edition. Contact ED/iT at (800) 987-3282 so that we can get the
new HomeBase Edition on to your PC.
