"Glideplan seems like a very useful tool for any pilot learning to fly cross country or planning badge flights. For myself, I like it just for the ability to print a fresh sectional every day with the course and landpoints laid out for the day's task." -Rick Indrebo- US soaring team for 29th world Championships, and winner 2005 18 meter Nationals
