Safely crossing the Dutch skies.

Airspace infringements are one of the larger hazards in aviation. A momentary lapse of your attention, an outdated chart, a NOTAM you overlooked or a tiny flaw in navigation might bring you straight into an airspace where your presence is highly unwanted! An airspace infringement can also form a very expensive situation; if large, commercial aircraft have to execute evasive maneuvers or miss their approach, the costs can possibly be claimed on the intruder! It's certainly not something you want on your pilot record, that's for sure.

EasyVFR Basic NL - free protection against infringements.

EasyVFR Basic NL icon.EasyVFR Basic NL is available for Apple iOS (that's iPhone and iPad) and Android from the respective Stores. It combines the power of your device's built-in GPS receiver, the reliability of the PocketFMS AeroDatabase and timeliness of the NOTAMs from Eurocontrol to continuously show your position and the airspaces in your vicinity - yep, even those by NOTAM!

EasyVFR Basic NL then timely warns you if you get too close, by highlighting the airspace on the moving map, by popping up additional information and even audibly. Reliable airspace information is available at the tap of a finger, while the dashboard constantly provides you with basic GPS flight information. EasyVFR Basic NL was instigated by the Dutch Airspace Infringements Prevention Team, and is supported by DGB, NLR, AOPA NL, KNVvL, KLu and LVNL. (EasyVFR Basic NL used to be named NL AirspaceAVOID).

Please read the leaflet on preventing airspace infringements thoroughly? It just might help you form a better image on this matter.


EasyVFR Basic NL features EasyReading.

It can adjust flawlessly to all screen sizes, resolutions and orientations. Via user-selectable magnification levels, users can set text and object sizes to their liking. This means no more fiddling with small buttons and difficult to read text in the cockpit; your attention should never deviate from flying. An example showing 2 different magnification levels:

You can control lots more, like the size of the airport symbols, the airplane that indicates your position, etc., but also speed and distance units.

EasyVFR Basic NL uses Top Quality AeroData.

EasyVFR uses PocketFMS AeroData, widely considered being the most complete available. Many systems only use AIP data, and so miss out on many details like glider fields, heliports, microlight strips and various other aerial activity areas. Obstacle data is maintained in unprecedented detail. Try to find this AeroData detail in any other product.

Additionally you can tap on any of the airspaces in the list to have it highlighted on the moving map. How's about that for situational awareness!

The same applies to NOTAMs; tap the NOTAM button, tap the NOTAM in the list and see where it applies to.

EasyVFR Basic NL includes EasyNOTAMs.

This might sound familiar: You're planning a trip for the upcoming weekend, and part of the preparation is reading the NOTAMs for your route. Normally that would mean reading through page after page of NOTAMs to see if there is anything important to know.

The pain is that you have to do it all over again on the day of departure to check for new NOTAMs! That pain stops with EasyVFR Basic NL.

EasyVFR Basic NL allows you to browse all related NOTAMs, text as well as on the map. The NOTAM information is taken directly from Eurocontrol via a secure server-to-server connection. No more plotting a NOTAM before you know if it's at all relevant!

NOTAM Push Messages.

Would you like to know what's going on at your home airport, even when you're not there? EasyVFR Basic NL can even help you there with its convenient NOTAM Push feature. You can indicate a center point (e.g. your home airport) and a radius (say 30 NM), and whenever a new NOTAM is issued that falls within the region you specified, you'll immediately recieve a message - even when EasyVFR Basic NL isn't active on your device!

Tips and Restrictions.

EasyVFR Basic NL can be a great help to you as a pilot, provided you use your Airmanship and common sense at all times. A few helpful tips for when you're using the app:

Caution. In ALL situations, please remember to "Aviate, navigate, communicate" - in that particular order of priority. Do not let your electronic device turn into a distraction rather than a safety addition, and fly the plane at all times.
 
Remember to continuously look outside the airplane - that's where it all happens. Your electronic device can help increase your situational awareness, but only if you use it properly!
 
Familiarize yourself with EasyVFR (e.g. at home) before you fly with it. It is by no means a complex tool, but you should focus on flying, not fiddling with software.
 
It is not entirely impossible that the electronic devices you carry aboard interfere with cockpit equipment, though such chances are slim. If you read unusual values from any instrument, switch all consumer electronics OFF to determine if they are the cause.
 
It is advised to turn WiFi and BlueTooth OFF on the devices you carry aboard, unless those functions are required. Doing so will minimize the risk of interference and prolong battery life.
 
It is advised you use the manufacturers original (or at least approved) chargers in flight. 3rd Party chargers might be less effective and can under specific conditions even pose a hazard to flight safety.
