Version V2.47 features the following key additions:
Notable features of version 2.47 (20-June-2020): ***********************
- Improved airspace warnings:
- New: Option to suppress MOA display on map and MOA airspace warnings.
May require rebuild of your NDB files with updated AIRPAR32.
John Leibacher has rebuilt NDB's on WWTPX, thanks John!
- Warns if your track is very close but parallel to airspace boundary
- Nuisance warnings greatly reduced
- Warnings now include time-til-airspace-boundary, for example:
!! Airspace !!
!! Warning !!
SALT LAKE CI
in :01:23 1.7sm
Alt:10500 ft MSL
to 12000 ft MSL
ENTER for map...
- Better special character handling in point/airspace names (U-umlaut..)
- AirPar32: special characters in airspace names, treat TYPE=MATZ as MOA
- DBC32: Add -u option to check for airspaces with unknown type
