desktop*StrePla
Version 6.5 Build 1629

  • Turn point and airports database separately
    Since version 6.5 of desktop*StrePla there is a separation between turning points and airports. This makes the creation of turn-point catalogs for modern computer systems easier and allows the StrePla team to maintain the airport data and keep it up-to-date.
  • Distance Circles
    Modern loggers record the tracks in relatively short time intervals (one second or four seconds). Based on this short time sequence of the position data, desktop*StrePla can calculate the wind from the offset. With this wind, the calculation of the range and the graphical representation are then carried out.
  • Barogram - Distance made good
    This barogram representation is completely new. The height is displayed over the distance covered. When you joining "around the airfield" this representation makes no sense. The experienced pilot, however, gives this diagram valuable information.
  • Small improvements
    Some minor bugs and improvements have been entered.

As always the update is free for customers who have bought the software or done a paid update within the last year.

All other customers can update their licence for 89.00 Euros. You can read our one year's update warranty here.

Version 6.3 Build 1517

Unfortunately, in both previous desktop*StrePla 6.3 versions Build 1506 and 1514 was a bug with airspace export, which is serious.

Error Description:
Open Airspace files, created with desktop*StrePla versions Build 1506 and 1514 has a bug with the the circular airspaces on pocket*StrePla and other devices. These airspaces are not displayed. So you'll not be warned for restricted areas under certain circumstances.

Necessary action (only applies to users who have created airspace files with version build 1506 or 1514):

2. Namibia street map with radial grid

This print out is very helpful if You like to call with ATC. ATC will have your position by altitude, radial and distance.
Therefore that the VOR Windhoeck has a deviation of 14 degrees, the grid on the map is turned by 14 degrees.
