iFlightPlanner, iFly GPS Integrate for Comprehensive, Multi-Platform Flight Planning

Tuesday, December 1, 2020 @ 10:00 AM

iFlightPlanner’s “Bring Your Own EFB” program, launched this summer in response to AOPA members’ desire to push flights planned with iFlightPlanner to their preferred Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), has been enhanced through a powerful integration with iFly GPS.

iFlightPlanner Core and iFlightPlanner Premium Members who plan a flight with iFlightPlanner or iFlightPlanner for AOPA will now have the ability to wirelessly sync flights to iFly GPS’ apps for Android, Windows, and Apple mobile devices.

With the newly released v11.1 of iFly GPS, users can now navigate to the iFlightPlanner settings via the Flight Plan > More Options menus and follow the on-screen instructions to connect the two platforms using their iFlightPlanner credentials, which will allow for any new or changed flight plans to wirelessly sync between iFlightPlanner and iFly GPS, automatically.

For AOPA members who are users of iFly GPS and wish to add the wireless sync capabilities with iFlightPlanner, special discounted pricing for iFlightPlanner Core and iFlightPlanner Premium memberships is detailed at iflightplanner.aopa.org/aopa.

The new features, as well as a live Q&A with participants, will be featured in a livestream hosted by Eric Rush, AOPA’s Director of Product Development, on the AOPA Live YouTube channel at 8pm EST (5pm PST) tomorrow, December 2.  Members may tune in by heading to youtube.com/c/aopalive/live

iFlightPlanner Launches “Bring Your Own EFB” for iOS, Android Apps

Tuesday, July 21, 2020 @ 10:00 AM

A new program for iFlightPlanner Core and iFlightPlanner Premium members to push flights planned with iFlightPlanner to their preferred Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) was launched today as part of the second major upgrade to iFlightPlanner since the introduction of iFlightPlanner for AOPA in April.

Members with access to iFlightPlanner for iPad and iFlightPlanner for iPhone will see a new “Bring Your Own EFB” setting to identify their preferred EFB.  When selected, any flight planned with iFlightPlanner may be exported to ForeFlight, FltPlan Go, FlyQ, Garmin Pilot, Jeppessen, or WingX running on Apple devices.  For pilots flying with Android, iFlightPlanner is currently working with several developers to integrate with their applications, and iFlightPlanner welcomes others to do the same by emailing appsupport@iflightplanner.com.

“iFlightPlanner was first to market with a synchronized, cloud-based platform that combined the versatility of the web with the portability our apps for iPad and iPhone, and we’re excited to extend a variation of these powerful capabilities to other flight planning platforms,” said Andy Matthews, Director of Business Development for iFlightPlanner.

This end-to-end flight planning experience has been further extended to AOPA members who carry an iFlightPlanner Core or iFlightPlanner Premium membership, allowing access to their enhanced feature sets directly through iFlightPlanner for AOPA – including multi-leg trip and fuel stop planning for iFlightPlanner Premium members.

Previously, members who upgraded from iFlightPlanner for AOPA were required to sign into iFlightPlanner.com to access their Core or Premium features.

“This change creates a seamless upgrade experience that builds on the familiarity AOPA members now have with iFlightPlanner for AOPA, eliminating the need to adjust their sign in process,” said John Burnside, Director of Technology.  “Upgraded members may now plan flights online with iFlightPlanner for AOPA, then open iFlightPlanner on their iPad or iPhone where their data is automatically synchronized for in-flight reference with GPS moving map, ADS-B In capabilities, and more.”

iFlightPlanner also enhanced the handling of dates, times, and time zones for all members, where the local time zone and UTC for the departure airport will now be calculated automatically based on more than 500 unique time zone variations.  Times can be further customized in the member’s Settings to be displayed in a preferred “Time Format” to allow for easy interpretation during flight planning across time zones.

For AOPA members who desire to upgrade, special discounted pricing is available for iFlightPlanner Core and Premium memberships. Both levels include feature-rich electronic flight bag functionality, with iFlightPlanner Premium adding advanced features such as multi-leg trip planning, a weight & balance calculator, ADS-B In capabilities, georeferenced airport diagrams and instrument approach procedures, and a digital pilot logbook. AOPA members save 20% on each upgraded membership, which are detailed at iFlightPlanner.com/AOPA.

The new features included in this release, as well as a live Q&A with viewers, will be featured in a livestream hosted by AOPA on their YouTube channel at 8pm EDT tonight (July 21).
