  • Blend with any background color in any browser (including IE7+)
  • Never worry about cross-browser compatibility


Meet Your Flight Crew

Beautiful. Configurable. Amazing. Meet your flight crew that will take your solutions to the next level. Our JavaScript Flight Gauges are beautiful, smart and put you in control of creating your success:

  • Airspeed Indicator

    Airspeed Indicator

    The Airspeed Indicator is an instrument that displays an aircraft's airspeed.

    The Airspeed Indicator is both complex and beautiful, featuring adjustable True Airspeed and Temperature components.

  • Artificial Horizon

    Artificial Horizon Attitude Indicator

    The Artificial Horizon informs the pilot of the orientation of the aircraft relative to Earth's horizon.

    The Artificial Horizon provides the smoothest experience while showing the aircraft's pitch (fore and aft tilt) and bank or roll (side to side tilt).

  • Altimeter (Electronic)

    Altimeter (Electronic)

    The Altimeter is an instrument used to measure the altitude of the aircraft above sea level.

    Beautifully rendered and highly customizable, our electronic Altimeter perfectly simulates modern aircraft altimeter gauges.

  • Turn Coordinator

    Turn Coordinator

    The Turn Coordinator is used to show an aircraft's roll rate, as well as its turn rate.

    When the aircraft is in a balanced turn, the ball is centered. When the aircrafts skids, the ball is left of center. As the aircrafts slips, the ball is right of center.

  • Horizontal Situation Indicator

    Horizontal Situation Indicator

    The Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) combines a traditional Directional Gyro with a VOR/ILS display.

    Undoubtedly the most complex flight instrument, we've painstakingly engineered the API to refine its complexity into a brew of simplicity you'll love to use.

  • Vertical Speed Indicator

    Veritical Speed Indicator

    The Vertical Speed Indicator (VSI) or Variometer is a flight instrument used to show the near instantaneous (rather than averaged) rate of descent or climb.

    Pilots rely on the VSI to ascertain whether level flight is maintained, especially during turning maneuvers.

  • RPM Indicator

    RPM Indicator

    The RPM Indicator or Tachometer is a flight instrument measuring the rotation speed of the aircraft's engine.

    The RPM Indicator is equipped to display color ranges to indicate a safe range of rotation speeds. Unlimited color ranges are available and optional.

  • Heading Indicator

    Compass Directional Gyro Heading Indicator

    The Heading Indicator, sometimes referred to as a Directional Gyro, informs the pilot of the aircraft's heading and course setting.

    Here, our Heading Indicator features a unique World War 2 (WW2) fighter rendition for its aircraft pointer.


Cross browser goodness baked in.

Cross browser and cross platform. We believe in standards-based development and we believe you can get there without Flash or any other proprietary platform.

That’s why we use standards-based SVG, VML and JavaScript. No Flash means longer battery life. No Flash means our gauges are mobile friendly - Think iPad & iPhone. We built a JavaScript gauge library we love to use and you will too.

browsers

We’ve tested on both Windows and Mac OS X in every major browser. Including: IE7 and IE8, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and even Opera. You focus on coding your business logic. We’ve got you covered in the browser department.


Highly configurable flight gauges.

Fully exposed API. Every background, every line, every needle, every frame, everything is at your fingertips to control:

configurable_flight_gauges

For us it’s simple, give you the best software. Then get out of the way. We believe our JavaScript components do something no one else can. . .We put your success in your hands - as it should be.

JavaScript flight gauge glass cockpit.

So go all digital and create your own custom glass cockpits. Or develop a custom multi-functional display. If you can dream it, our flight gauges can help you pull it off and then some.

No matter the requirement or client demand, we keep our flight gauges flexible so you can stay flexible too.


Beautiful and Usable Documentation

Software that’s easy to use. Software shouldn’t be painful to handle. In fact, the information you need to get going should be well organized and easily understood:

documentation

We produce quality documentation of how our software works, insuring you spend most of your time enjoying our JavaScript gauges and being most productive on your projects.


So what’s under the hood?

Everything a sophisticated developer needs. Beautiful object oriented code. You already know JavaScript, so implementation is a breeze. You will find JavaScript, jQuery & Raphael best practices with easily extensible flight gauge classes and smart default options. Check out this Altimeter flight gauge:

var altimeter = new Altimeter("altimeter", { altitude: 0, reporting: 0, hundreds: 0, thousands: 0 });

altimeter.setAltitude(0); altimeter.setReporting(2573); altimeter.setHundreds(2); altimeter.setThousands(1);

. . .

<div id="altimeter"></div>

Is it really that easy? Yes it is my friend. Yes it is.

Most of the time you’ll need to feed data to your flight gauges from a remote server. For an advanced discussion on client-side polling techniques, see Long Polling with JavaScript and jQuery on the TechOctave blog. There we discuss various options for feeding data to our components from a remote server.

For real-time server-push solutions, our flight gauges work great with HTML5 WebSockets, so grab your favorite WebSockets library.


So, what’s next exactly?

Purchase a library package. Within a few seconds, you’ll receive a receipt for your purchase and a secure link to download the package. Each package comes with tons of examples to get you up and running in no time.
