Peter Jacobson is a true pioneer in the flight simulator community. He's been active with Flight Simulation for more than 10 years and with marine and celestial navigation for many years prior. He is the respected developer of the legendary CoPilot and Aircraft & Scenery Designer tools that are used by tens of thousands of FS users worldwide.

Peter's greatest contribution to Flight Simulation was to introduce an easy to use graphical user interface that simplifies previously complex processes. And although Flight Simulation is just his hobby, simplifying complex software has been his profession for more than 20 years. This keeps him very busy. However, he recently agreed to spend some time with us to re-introduce a slick instrument that simplies navigation. Many of you may recognize it's name EZ-GPS.

You can instantly drop EZ-GPS into any of your Flight Simulator aircraft and be flying direct or any flight plan without the hassle of complex setup.

Here is a quick rundown of the features of EZ-GPS.

 

  • Effortlessly flies you to destination using any Flight Simulator flight plan
  • Quickly "dial in" your identifier if you want to fly direct
  • GPS button engages "hands off" automatic routing to waypoints
  • Alternatively fly to waypoints using course deviation indicator
  • Tucks into small corner of your cockpit; requires very little visual real estate
  • Installs instantly into virtually any Flight Simulator aircraft
  • Simulates autopilot flying even if aircraft does not have one installed
  • Compact size is only 7.3 MB for fast download

EZ-GPS is available now by download and will be available on CD-ROM by April 23rd. Suggested retail price is $19.95.
