map. It is primarily aimed at glider pilots with the ability to
place a task planned around BGA turnpoints on the same map and
look for potential conflicts. By displaying all the turnpoints
on the map, you can easily adjust the task to avoid infringing
some temporary airspace.
Check is another NOTAM display program. We understand that
this uses the same data source as NotamPro. NOTAM Check displays
NOTAMs as their true shape and not a 'circle of influence' derived
from a Q-line as seen in other NOTAM plotting software. NOTAM
Check claims to be the only software available that can do this
for all plottable NOTAMs.

The ESC was formed
in 1987 by Brian and Gillian Spreckley, to create a relaxed but
efficient organisation for adventurous glider pilots looking for
new and interesting soaring sites. Since then the Club has flown
mostly in France, Spain and South Africa offering an excellent
