Apologies for misunderstanding. We will review the issues you mentioned as part of our final testing in the new version. In the interim, should you see the issue again, tap "< Flights" at the upper left, then tap on the correct flight to reload the flight data into the File view. Please let us know if that doesn't present the correct information for the selected flight!

John thanks for the quick reply.. Maybe I was a bit unclear. My flight TODAY was NOT FILED when I saw the "Flight Plan File Date" listing Feb 17th. Should it have been blank or at least near the current time and DAY? Also on the image I sent... next to "FLIGHT PLAN STATUS" it lists FILED and should say NOT FILED.

Thanks for your post! The date in the Planner console is the departure date of the flight. The date next to "Flight Plan File Date" is the date and time the plan was filed with the FAA (FSS or ATC). So these dates will always be different. For example, your flight may be at 4pm today (which would be shown in the Planner tab) but you filed the plan at 3:15pm (which would be shown on the File view).

As for the scrolling down issue, this sounds consistent with a few of the interface anomalies we have seen with iOS 10.2. Typically, you can switch to a different flight view (Map, Wx Brief, etc), then switch back to the File view. Or tap "< Flights" at the top left, then reopen the flight as a workaround. Changing the Flight Plan Type, then changing it back to IFR - ICAO would also force the app to recalculate the length of the view and allow you to scroll all the way down.

On the other iOS 10.2 fixes, yes, we are very close to sending the new version. Feedback from testing has been positive and we're just making a few final enhancements. Thanks for your patience!

Today trying to file an IFR flight plan in iPad for IFP some anomalies. At the top left next to prior to filing flt plan it listed Feb 17 not today's date even thought in planner tab showed today's date. Then it would not allow me to scroll down far enough to depress button to file anyway. So I created a completely new flight but the same date issue happened again but it allowed me for scroll down and file. Was able to open the flight plan in the air no issue.
Just a few minutes ago created new flight for Thursday and for grins went over to the file tab and date shows today at 10:19 am not Thursday as is listed in planner tab. Also at the top it shows "Filed" but I have not even gone through Wx or WB actions and I have not filed this one. Image attached.

If you're already on iOS 10.2, we don't believe upgrading to 10.2.1 is going to change much. It's up to you if you want to wait a bit longer.

We are nearly complete with the updates required to fix the issue and will be releasing a copy of the new version to our beta test group this week. We don't anticipate any major issues and will be submitting an updated version of iFlightPlanner for iPad to Apple by next week at the latest.

Radial Distances In Flight planning

Thanks for you post!

We do not currently have a dialog to enter these parameters. However, when using our Flight Wizard to plan a flight, you may select "Custom Routing", then type a waypoint in the form "VVVVVrrrddd" where VVVVV is the name of a VOR or fix (can be 2-5 characters), rrr is the radial and ddd is the distance. For example, TVC180010 would represent a point 10nm on the 180 radial from the TVC VOR.

We've made a note to make this functionality available in our free Aviation Charts also.

Additionally, if you are an iFlightPlanner Premium member, you may use the Custom Waypoint functionality to save a point for future use. In doing so, you can provide a custom identifier for the point that is easy to remember and type.

Is there a way while flight planning to bring up a dialog to select parameters for a circle, i.e. 10 nm from airport radius, that allows you to select any point on the radial line so that you know you have selected exactly 10nm?

It seems as though it resets itself to 3000ft, I just flew the flight sim and the waypoints themselves are fine but the altitude for each is at 3000 ft. It was flown on a GRT Horizon Hx.

Christopher,

The GPX file that you're able to export should have the altitude you entered in the Flight Basics section embedded in it. If that's not the case, please send the file to us so that we may investigate further!

The planning engine does not allow for step-up or step-down procedures for individual waypoints, although that is a common request.

Please let us know and we'll look forward to your reply!

Best,
Andy

Would like to be able to output a gpx file with waypoints at specific heights, or just the ability to set the flight level at 10.5k ft and have my waypoints on efis show they are at 10.5k rather than on the ground.

Haven't seen the email but just now thought to delete and reinstalled the app. Everything is working fine now.

By the way. Thanks for such a quick response on a Sunday night. I didn't expect to hear from you until tomorrow.

The iPad app suddenly quit opening. The initialization screen appears briefly then disappears.

I'm almost positive it was working after I updated to ios 10.2 (14C92) quite awhile ago. And I've powered down the iPad and restarted it.

Every once in awhile it &quotloads&quot enough to see it when I double click on the Home button. What I see after double clicking is an approach chart that is only about 25% complete but it immediately disappears to the background when I try to tap on it. I haven't been able to see any consistent reason for why it does (sort of) open on those rare occasions.

Edit - it works fine on my wife's iPad Air but not on my iPad 4.

Flight Planning WITHOUT an aircraft selected

Tanks for the feedback! The free Aviation Charts page and our detailed Flight Wizard, while similar, are separate planning interfaces.

The Planner in iFlightPlanner for iPad is an in-app version of the Flight Wizard, and I absolutely see how more basic planning features (perhaps without an aircraft) would be helpful in the app. In the meantime, I suggest creating a generic aircraft profile so that the app will behave more like the Aviation Charts.

All new features and enhancements are rooted in member feedback and we'll be sure to consider this as we review the next version for the App Store! Please let us know if you have any questions along the way.

Best,
Andy
