Below is another screenshot which shows how this feature integrates with SnapPLOT. This sample flight plan is now ready to be sent to air traffic controllers and facilitates readability by displaying the airspace.

To use in flight, in snapPLAN export the plan and check “include airspaces” to use FAA-Airspaces in Snapshot.

Note this is for US airspace only.
