Hi Dave,

It looks like when the Cyber Monday membership special was applied to your account, it was switched to iFlightPlanner Premium rather than Premium Plus. Georeferenced airport diagrams and approach plates, including the "Map It" feature, are part of Premium Plus, which is why you weren't seeing the "Map It" button in the app.

We've updated your account to iFlightPlanner Premium Plus. Simply tap "Sync" at the top of the Home view in the app and you'll be all set.

I was out flying some practice approaches yesterday and I noticed the "Map It" feature to overlay the plate on the map was missing. Is this a user error. I have been known to do that. smile See attached screen shot.

Yes, we've been keeping an eye on what Mitre is doing, and have actually spec'd our own functionality given some other user requests this past spring... I don't have a timeline, but as you know, all new features are prioritized by the amount of support they're receiving and this one has to potential to be moved up.

Been reading about an app in development from Mitre corp that can be used to receive clearances and provide release info direct via ATC. Seems like it is gaining a lot of traction. Would be great if it could somehow be incorporated into IFP for iPad instead of using a phone.

Here is a link to the new app in case you have not seen it.

Yessir! An iPhone version of iFlightPlanner is in the works... I don't have a timeline for you, but you can be sure we'll let everyone know when it's available in the App Store.

In the meantime, open www.iFlightPlanner.com.com from within Safari on the iPhone. The website is fully responsive to any size web browser. It will obviously lack the GPS moving map capabilities of a native app, but still allow you to take iFlightPlanner with you on the go!

I'm sure you guys have had this request already but do you know when the iPhone app will come out. Or an estimated time. Love the app but would really like something on the iPhone. Would make life a lot easier. Thanks.

Andy,

No. I just started using the program recently and have not entered any backlogged flights.

So if I understand correctly, if I did NOT back-fill my flights it should show green once I have flown an INST approach for 6 consecutive months?

The EAA's IMC Club's definition of "proficiency" is one instrument approach flown every month for 6 consecutive months... while the FAA recognizes currency as 6 approaches flown in the last 6 months, regardless of when they happen.

Have you entered one approach for each of the last 6 months?

Hey Andy,

I still don't understand. I've added multiple IFR approaches but it's still only showing a single entry. My IFR Approaches is showing as (Current) is there other data here it is looking for?

Thank you so much for aware us about this issue which will temporarily cache "behind-the-scenes" files, such as the one that does the calculations for the nav log.

Thanks for your message! The pilot currency and IMC Club Proficiency statuses at www.iFlightPlanner.com/My are driven by the data saved in your Flight List & Logbook at www.iFlightPlanner.com/My/Flights. After flying a flight, be sure to log the data in your logbook using the "Close & Log" function in iFlightPlanner for iPad or in your Flight List & Logbook - it's the booklet icon with the green arrow.

Please let us know that got you in the right spot!

I've done a few instrument approaches which seems to be part of it but I can't tell what it wants for additional items and I can't seem to find any information on it on the site other than the link which goes to the EAA website.

Dave,

I was just reviewing e-mails and realized I never let you know that the issue with "Plan Reverse Flight" not populating ICAO information was fixed!

We are still investigating the issue with texts for flight plan changes.

Chart annotations

Thinking on how I annotate paper charts three colors would probably work. Would need an eraser feature as part of the capability. I would suggest you need to have the annotated items remain on the chart until you entered an "erase all" on each chart or when the next cycle is downloaded which ever is first. This would be for both approach and taxiway charts

Here is a link to the article I was referencing on capabilities of three flight planners.

https://ipadpilotnews.com/2017/10/using-chart-annotations-favorite-aviation-app-2/

Attached is an example of how the annotation is used.

Hi Dave,

We’ve had a few requests for this feature at different times. It’s not definitively in our roadmap, but as always, the more requests we receive for a feature, the quicker it moves up our priority list.

Do you have any specific thoughts on exactly how the feature would work? For example, how many different colors would you like? Should notes be permanently saved with a plate or only displayed while the plate is still open?

Thanks!

Been reading some of the other apps are offering the ability to make annotations on charts using a pencil and highlighter function. Any plans to offer similar capabilities on IFP for iPad?
