How the Charts Viewer Works

Soon after I published the first version of FSKneeboard (back then known as “VFR Map For VR”) users started bringing up the idea of implementing a viewer that would enable them to bring their approach-, terminal- and taxiway-charts into their VR space.

How cool would it be to check out all these documents, checklists, notes etc. inside your VR headset?

That’s where the Charts Viewer comes in. It enables you to add any png file you like to your kneeboard and have it ready inside your VR headset whenever you need it!

The Charts Viewer, however, is a premium feature that is not included in the all-free version of FSKneeboard. You’ll get unlimited access to it if you decide to support the development of FSKneeboard by purchasing a PRO license! Doesn’t sound like a deal, yet? Here’s the kicker: YOU PICK THE PRICE YOU WANT TO PAY! 🙂 It’s your call!
