RadarBox is committed to offering its users the freedom to customize their views on the website and app. One customization that users love is the ability to choose and customize maps with overlays and other features. RadarBox offers users 7 unique maps to choose from, however for this week's feature of the week, we'll be focusing on the SkyVector set of maps.

There are 3 SkyVector maps currently offered:

  1. SkyVector VFR

  3. SkyVector Hi

 

1. SkyVector VFR

SkyVector's VRF (Visual Flight Rules) aeronautical chart is designed to be a navigation reference for pilots to use during flight planning and flights.

Routes

Before we get into what SkyVector HI and SkyVector LO are, we need to understand what airways or "air routes" are. Routes known as "highways of the skies", are fixed tracks or paths in the sky used during navigation and flight planning by pilots and dispatchers all over the world.

2. SkyVector Lo (Low Altitude Airways) 

Map designed especially for flight crews and pilots. This option displays navigation waypoints and low-altitude flights (below 18,000 feet (5,500 m).

This map option displays waypoints and routes for high-altitude flights (from 18,000 feet - 5,500 meters)—an essential tool (aeronautical charts) for pilots, dispatchers, and flight crews in general.
