Requirements

To be able to uses the files provided by Discovering Eagle you need to have a
working installation of SkyDemon on Android, iOS or Windows PC and a valid
subscription.

We develop our files with the newest version of SkyDemon at that given time. Even though SkyDemon claims backwards compatibility for custom data, we can’t
guarantee it.

All development and testing including creation of the screenshots included in
the archive are done with the default SkyDemon 3 chart style. We do not check
nor do we guarantee that the projected features are displayed correctly with
the use of other chart styles.

Cost

Everything on this website is free! Nevertheless I would appreciate if you donate a little via the support page. I do put a lot of work in these downloads and with every donation you help me coming closer to the ultimate goal: Flying around Africa!

Installing

  1. Unzip the contents of the downloaded archive to your SkyDemon’s CustomData folder. On Windows computers you will usually find this at C:Users< username >DocumentsSkyDemonCustomData. On Android you will find it under < Internal storage >/SkyDemon/CustomData.
  2. After unzipping you should find the following files:
      • README.md (you can delete this one afterwards)
      • LICENSE.md
      • Germany_Airspace_Corrections_DDMMMYYYY.airways
      • Germany_Airspace_Corrections.png (you can delete this one afterwards)
  3. Now startup SkyDemon. If it has been running close and restart it.
  4. Make your map layer settings:
    1. On a Windows PC go to the main menu and turn on the following:
      • Mapping > Airspace > Show Controlled Airspace A-D
      • Mapping > Airspace > Show Controlled Airspace E
      • Mapping > Airspace > Show Other Airspace
    2. On a mobile device tap the chart layer icon (three panes stacked on top of each other) in the bottom right of the map window and turn on this:
      • Airspace > Controlled A-D
      • Airspace > Controlled E
      • Airspace > Misc

Now you should see that the airspaces metioned above have appeared.

It didn’t work

Make sure, all chart layer options are turned on as described above. Zoom in closer to prevent features been hidden by SkyDemons automatic decluttering feature. You can check your settings while zooming in to the area near Hamburg (EDDH). See the included screenshot for reference.

If you still do not get any sectors, check if you extracted the archive into your SkyDemon’s CustomData folder without any subfolder. Make sure, you did not change any filename. If you need to correct something here, restart SkyDemon afterwards.
