Panels are a powerful feature of SeeYou which enable you to see more details about a flight.

These panels are available through Edit > View menu when you are viewing a flight:

  • Instruments panel,
  • Photo panel,
  • Airspace violation panel,
  • Optimization panel.

Note that all panels are resize-able and dock-able. By dragging the lateral limits of the panel you can  choose its size. The data in the panel will fit the the best it can. By dragging the caption you can undock and move the panel any place you like. Even to your second monitor if you wish (useful when presenting instruments and/or photos). By dragging the caption to any of the corners of the SeeYou screen the instruments become docked to that edge. Double click on the caption docks or undocks the panel. Try dragging it around to see how it works.

1. Instruments panel


Showing instruments is a very nice way to present the most important flight parameters to people you  are presenting to. You should set the units through Tools > Options > General > Units. All instruments are available in metric and imperial units and then some. 

Note that the Instruments panel is resizable and dock-able. By dragging the lateral limits of the panel you  can choose the size of the instruments which suits the purpouse best. The instruments will fit the panel the best they can. By dragging the "Cockpit" caption you may undock and move the panel any place you like. Even to your second monitor if you wish. By dragging the "Cockpit" caption to any of the corners of the SeeYou screen the instruments become docked to that edge.






2. Pictures panel


Adding pictures to IGC files is a lot of fun. The pictures are presented in a panel similar to the instruments panel. It is resizable and dockable. By dragging the lateral limits of the panel you can choose its size. The photos in the panel will fit the the best they can. By dragging the "Flight pictures" caption you can undock and move the panel any place you like. Even to your second monitor if you wish. By dragging the caption to any of the corners of the SeeYou screen the instruments become docked to that edge. Double click on the caption docks or un-docks the panel. Try dragging it around to see how it works.

3. Airspace violation panel

To see whether any airspace was crossed, you should open the panel View > Airspace Violation or  press Ctrl+I.


This will:

  • Open a small text window with a list of airspace violations 
  • Change the color scheme to Airspace Violation 

Note that only visible airspace is checked. Make sure you enable the types of airspace you are interested  in and disable the ones that don't matter. Do this using the Tools > Airspace command from the main menu.


4. Optimization panel


This option will find the longest flown distance for the active flight for different types of rules for cross- country flights.  


SeeYou will optimize the flight from begin of soaring to the end of soaring. If you think that the calculated  values are incorrect, you may change the time period by making a selection.


Select Edit > Optimize from the main menu, Press Ctrl+L in the Flight window or click mouse right  button in the flight window and select Optimize. 


It finds these optimized tasks (if enabled in Options > Optimization):

  • FAI badge and record flights (goal flight, out and return, FAI Triangle and Three turnpoint flights) 
  • OLC for gliders (start and finish + 4 points) 
  • OLC for Hanggliders and Paragliders (FAI Triangle, Triangle and Free flight with 3 points, 20% distance  allowed between start and finish) 
  • DMSt (FAI Triangle, Triangle and Free flight with 3 points) 
  • SIS-AT (Gummiband).


Click Copy if you would like to see Statistics for the optimized task.  It is possible to save the flight with the optimized task.
