Routing for Approach Procedures, Sids, Stars

Dave,

Auto-routing via SIDs and STARs is available... simply select the "Low Altitude Airway Auto w SID/STAR" from the routing options and you'll see fields appear for the respective procedure for each airport.

You can also search the Recent ATC Routes which usually include any SID/STARs that are being issued for routes between those two airport pairs.

The same functionality for both is available in iFlightPlanner for iPad as well as on www.iFlightPlanner.com.

Anything on the horizon for integrating auto routing by selecting a procedure (IFR)?

Bob,

FAA Form 7233-4 (International Flight Plan) can be downloaded and printed at https://iacra.faa.gov/iacra/faa7233-4.pdf.

It is referenced in the opening paragraph of the PDF that Dave posted, and as he mentioned, we're set to go with ICAO filing! Head to https://www.iFlightPlanner.com/My/Aircraft, click Edit for the aircraft you would like to view, and navigate to the ICAO Flight Plan Filing tab to make any changes.

Try this. Updated 5/2017

https://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ato/service_units/systemops/fs/res_links/media/ICAO_Flight_Plan_Filing.pdf

However IFP has it built into the APP and filing is a breeze.

Does anyone know a site that displays the ICAO IFR Flight Plan format that I can print out?

Yes, the copy I'll send you this afternoon is technically v3.0.010. I think you have v3.0.003 right now. So, both v3.0, but this will include a number of additional updates and fixes!

Hi Dave,

We had a couple reports of this from another member and I'm confident we've fixed the issue. We'll send you an updated copy of the v3.0 beta this afternoon for you to install. Thanks as always for letting us know!

I am having a recurring issue where the saved ICAO IFR flight plan defaults disappear while working on finalizing a flight. I frequently bounce back and forth from IFP.com to iPad for IFP when working on planning an IFR flight. Today I was working on a flight with some practice approaches and just when I went to file my flight plan on IFP for iPad I noticed that all the defaults that were showing up earlier were gone. Like a blank plan. It has happened before on several occasions.

Ideas?

Ability to add more than one chart to your map.

Thanks for your post! These are great suggestions. We've had a couple requests for the auto-switch to the airport diagram, but hadn't considered the ability to map multiple charts at a time. The feature set for the next version has been finalized, but I've put these items in the set of potential additions for the following version.

As always, input from our members and the aviation community help us prioritize our feature development!

I think it would be beneficial to be able to have all your charts mapped so you dont have to continue to load new charts, and also where you can have a pre-determined time an approach chart would change to the airport diagram maybe upon touchdown, or just have an easy way to load the chart, maybe a way to pre-load all the pertinent charts in an easy to utilize quick window, or whatever.

Confusing JVL VOR w/ JVL NDB?

Thanks for the follow up message!

It's ironic you should mention the additional notation to differentiate waypoints. We originally had logic along those lines in our route parsing, but took it out a while back as part of a different set of changes. We have made a note to review how we may reinstate that capability to help in these situations.

Nope, my ADF is inop.

Understanding the potential problem with forcing selection of VORs over NDBs, another approach might be to provide a tag that could tell your routing algorithm which navaid to use -- something like JVL:V vs. JVL:N. It seems this would reduce the potential side-effects of a global change in the algorithm. Just a thought...

Thanks!

Thanks for your post! When duplicate waypoints are present (i.e. JVL), our routing algorithm uses the one closest in distance to the previous waypoint. When coming from the north/northeast, that is the JVL NDB. From the south/southwest it would be the JVL VOR. Dragging the waypoint and leaving it as a lat/lon is currently the best weorkaround.

However, we are looking at the duplicate waypoints in our database (which originate from official FAA data) and considering ways to give the VORs complete priority over the NDBs in routing, however we need to make sure that won't have any adverse affect on pilots who still do use NDBs in routes.

As a pilot, do you ever use NDBs? As always, the input from members of the aviation community will help shape our feature development.

Hello. This issue seems to persist. Entering the plan C29 MSN JVL JOT KLOT always pegs to the NDB, and there doesn't seem to be a way to correct it, short of dragging the point to the proper place on the chart and leaving it as a lat/long. Is there a better workaround?

Thanks for your post! I see that you are in communication via e-mail with our team and have a found a resolution for now.

However, we are investigating the issue and already have a good idea about the source and long term fix. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks for your continued support of iFlightPlanner!

I continue to attempt to log in with my app, but I always get the same message. A connection to iFlightPlanner.com could not be established and to contact you all if the problem persisted. Well I cant login.

Thanks for your post! We did investigate this feature enhancement. Unfortunately, top of climb and top of descent is not provided by the underlying flight planning engine we use, so we don't have a viable pathway to add it at this time.

However, we'll continue to work with our technology partners to incorporate new features as a result of user feedback.

In the meantime, can you share with us how you primarily would use the top of climb and top of descent info in your flying? Understanding the processes you use and your objectives for certain features can often help us brainstorm other ways of achieving a desired result.

Thanks for your continued support!
