VFR Flight Preparation
We recommend the PilotNet system (https://pilotnet.hu/) for domestic VFR flight planning. The use of the system is free!
The development of the PilotNet system (https://pilotnet.hu/) aimed to utilize the capabilities of mobile internet networks during flights, focusing on the needs of domestic VFR traffic. We wanted to create a system that, with live internet connection, is capable of:
- Transmitting the position of pilots using the system
- Displaying surrounding traffic for pilots using the system - including signals from the own system, OGN (thus also seeing FLARM signals) and ADS-B systems
- Displaying airspace data in real-time - provided by Hungarocontrol
- Displaying real-time weather information
We highly recommend using the application for pilots of aircraft who do not have a radio or transponder. While using the application, the user's phone can act as a "transponder," making the pilot visible to other system-using pilots in the vicinity of the airport.
