SeeYou is a flight planning and analysis tool for glider, paraglider and hang glider pilots. It is designed for Windows PC as well as Android, iPhone and iPad devices.
Its functions before the flight allow you to plan tasks, manage waypoint lists and upload all that to the navigation device of your choice. After the flight it allows you to download flights from GPS devices, see your flight on the map, analyse it into the tiniest details through Statistics and 3D view.
It is closely integrated with SeeYou Cloud in order to deliver seamless comfort in viewing your flights on home PC, at work, on your Tablet or Smartphone.

Plannnig a badge or record flight? Look no further. SeeYou has an integrated Task Management tool which allows you to plan goal, Out-and-return, Triangle and other types of flights on a map.
Trying to find out why others fly further or faster? Open all interesting flights on a single screen, animate the flights, study the routes flown by the best pilots and explore the statistics in every detail. This is how many aspiring pilots have become respected cross-country pilots and competitors.
Airspace updates are automatic and free for SeeYou subscribers. It doesn’t get easier than this. SeeYou checks for the latest airspace files automatically and notifies you about any updates. That’s it – no installation, no downloads, fully automatic.
SeeYou users don’t install maps. They wait briefly for the maps to come to them. Open a flight and see how the maps will stream to your computer!
Raster Maps, when compared to vector maps, are suitable for special use. For example when You want to explore features not covered in vector maps, such as vegetation, mountain top names, labels on maps and others.
SeeYou uses a proprietary CMR raster format where images are geo-referenced and provide optimal resolution at various zoom levels. Extremely large maps like Satellite images and US Sectionals can be displayed at once without compromising speed.
You may also scan Your own maps with the information You need. Combining vector and raster maps will give the best results in 3D!
You will then be able to view Your flight in exactly the detail You need.
SeeYou will give You much more detailed statistics for Your flight than any other gliding software.
Are You interested in how good You are in thermalling to the left or right?
Want to know the distribution of average lift or ground speeds used?
How about those circles You make in vain, thinking “this must have been lift!” Ever thought about how much time they cost You?
Enough said. See for yourself:
- We have spent more than 50 minutes climbing in lift of less than 0.2 m/s
- But nevertheless flown a memorable 678km FAI Triangle in the Alps.
Another unique feature to SeeYou is that it includes the wind in statistics reports:
- It stores the Wind into height layers
- It averages the wind from several flights for an even better estimate
- It stores the wind into a database for future use
- If TAS/IAS and GS are in the IGC file it computes the wind in straight flight
Flight Phase statistics
A great way to explore your flight is by studying flight phases.
It is a very simple set of straight and circling phases of your flight. But it tells an interesting story when you startsorting these flight phases by clicking on column headers.
- see the distribution of average lift during your flight,
- find your lowest save, top thermal, longest straight phase,
- explore the distribution of ground speeds achieved
- Double-clicking on a phase will move the glider into this phase,
- when used in a desktop this gives an immediate visual reference
Allow your imagination to guide you.
Not too many words are required here.
Changing perspective: Hold mouse left button and move the mouse
Changing zoom: Hold mouse right button and move the mouse up/down
Use Tools->Options->3D view to determine the look and feel of your 3D window
Enable 3D: if your graphic card can’t provide 3D for you, uncheck this option
Show textured ground: Shows a flat map by using your current options in Route view
Show Sky: shows blue sky
Texture size: width or height of the map in pixels
Height exaggeration: Multiplies terrain and track height.
Visible layers: You can set them up from the overhead view
Flight Optimization is the phrase glider pilots most commonly use when talking about GPS flight recorders and computer software today. There is a growing number of XC contests which allow for undeclared flights and thus require some sort of optimization.
SeeYou at present fully supports these optimizations:
. aerokurier Online Contest (OLC) for gliders
. FAI badge and record rules
. DHV Online Contest for Hanggliding and Paragliding
. Deutsche Meisterschaft im Streckensegelflug (DMSt)
. SIS-AT (Gummiband)
Sophisticated mathematical algorithms enable SeeYou to calculate the longest task flown within seconds.
You can copy the calculated task into Your flight and immediately enjoy a full statistics report for the optimized task.
By pressing the Submit button in the Optimization panel you can submit your flights to the Online Contest with a single click.
Optimizations include Free flight with up to 6 free waypoints, FAI Triangle, Triangle without FAI restrictions. For some, the optimized flight is compared to the declared task.
Simultaneous animation of multiple flights is a very educational competition analysis. WithSeeYou such animation is created by just a few clicks.
Simply select more flights from the ‘File Open’ window and they will be displayed in separate colors. It is up to you to decide how these flights should be synchronized:
- Real time animation will show gliders’ actual positions at a given time.
- Start Time synchronization is featured in the picture below. All gliders start the task at the same moment, so You can see who was the actual leader at a given moment.
- Take Off, Landing, Finish and Custom synchronizations are also possible.
- Each competitor can be presented with his flight parameters and own color.
- The length of the bar at each competition number represents the glider’s altitude.
- From the Synchronize dialog you can choose the synchronization method.
SeeYou presents several different types of waypoints, ranging from a turnpoint to mountain pass. Waypoints can be imported and exported to all file formats, known to us. If there is an unsupported file format, please let us know, and we will implement it as soon as possible.
Home Waypoint is a useful feature for pilots who travel around the world with their gliders.
This one-click menu offers You the possibility of switching between gliding sites anywhere in the world.
Printing is a very important part of SeeYou
It is possible to print
Single or multiple Flights to fit the page or in desired scale,
Statistics for the whole flight, only for the task or custom selection,
Graphs for altitude, ground speed, engine noise level and more,
Contest Tasks that you have designed to fit the page or in scale and
Daily and total results in a contest
All or just selected Waypoints
All these and many other options can be set up through Page Setup window.
A special feature even enables you to print Maps in desired scale.
Task sheet like this will be well appreciated by everyone ever involved in contest organization:
Through Tools-Options-General you can choose one of several languages:
- Bulgarian Cyrilic
There is a number of people to whom we need to say THANK YOU for helping us make SeeYou available in world’s languages.If you would like to use SeeYou in your language write to firstname.lastname@example.org! Translating SeeYou to your language is a matter of days, so please contact us.
