Thursday 4 February, 2016

German pilot Bernd Gassner has created a new tool for planning cross-country routes, called Thermix.

The web app combines some of the functionality of Tom Payne’s XC Planner with thermal data from Thermap and Hotspots as well as track data from flight logs on KK7 and the DHV/XC sites. Bernd, who is an avid pilot as well as an IT expert, has created a comprehensive tool for flight planning.

Thermix is a non-commercial project and is free to use. So get planning your future flights at berndgassner.de/thermix. Just don’t blame us if you waste away too many hours.
