While carrying out pilot-student flight analysis, it was observed that there is a scarcity of means designed to allow fast and convenient analysis and evaluation of pilot-student flights in airspace. Most of the free navigation tools available are more adapted for on-ground navigation analysis (height and vertical speed information are not always displayed). Various software programmes can display different flight information; however, it is difficult to relate the different data parameters and compare them. Thus, the aim of the study is to resolve these problems by offering to pilots-instructors a convenient interactive aeronautical chart.
