Synthetic Vision is pretty cool!

Even if I NEVER use it in decreased vis or at night (I do not PLAN to) I love having this as a backup. No, it won't change ANY of my GO/NO GO calls or change my safety parameters, but this is a nice thing to have "just in case" and when flying around here in high-terrain, with a lot of traffic, and around a lot of water that produces fog and mist.

Very good improvement here - really appreciate it and AT NO EXTRA COST!  IFly Rocks - keep up the great work!

Also great around very congested areas as well...very nice to have to see traffic!

In this photo I am escaping the SFRA around the DC area - I am leaving Dulles Runway 30 and got vectored into high terrain...the SV showed the yellow mountain tops before I could tell they were going to be a factor.....thanks!

Gents, today something really unusual happened to me - a two-ship of extremely fast-movers zoomed by me like nothing I have ever seen - I thought the ADSB was going bonkers, but no, a two-ship of something, probably military, whizzed by at over 1,200 knots!

Here is the IFLY and synthetic vision shot of it - amazing!

Shot one: I clicked on the details to get the speed as these two targets were literally zooming across my screen!

Shot two: the SV look as the two objects were speeding in formation.

I thought about replacing your message with "SECURITY VIOLATION DETECTED, POST REMOVED BY NSA".  But I didn't do it.
