iFlightPlanner, iFlightPlanner for AOPA 'Tuned for Efficiency'

Friday, May 22, 2020 @ 8:00 AM

Since the launch of iFlightPlanner for AOPA on April 22, the iFlightPlanner Crew and specialists in the AOPA Pilot Information Center used common questions and feedback from pilots to tune this week's release of enhancements to iFlightPlanner's web platforms — which includes iFlightPlanner for AOPA.

  • Improved route rubberbanding to work in one seamless motion rather than first needing to insert a waypoint 
  • Changed coloring of future TFRs to orange to distinguish from those currently active
  • Enhanced fuel price menu to help members quickly locate available fuel and pricing at nearby airports
  • Added plain language weather briefs and setting for members' preferred format in My Settings
  • Created option to reduce the number of reporting points when flying airways
  • Introduced logic to detect changes requiring amendment or refiling of previously filed flight plans 

The new features and common questions were highlighted in a live stream with Eric Rush from AOPA and iFlightPlanner co-founders Andy Matthews and John Burnside, which is available HERE on YouTube.

iFlightPlanner, AOPA Announce Access to New Flight Planner

Wednesday, April 22, 2020 @ 11:05 AM

When AOPA announced that the legacy software powering AOPA’s popular online flight planning tool would be discontinued by the end of April, the associations information technology leaders were already hard at work finding a replacement to meet AOPA members’ needs. That replacement flight planning tool became available on April 22.


iFlightPlanner: Intuitively plan routes over hi-res charts with graphical weather overlays.

As the legacy flight planner sunsets, AOPA leaders expressed deep gratitude to Boeing and its Jeppesen team for their long support of the historic AOPA product and their help in transitioning to a new membership offering.

While working on the transition to a new planner, we listened carefully to feedback about what members value most for flight planning tools in an online or desktop environment. The result is a new partnership with iFlightPlanner that combines a new technology platform with a core set of features that AOPA members have long been asking for. iFlightPlanner, an Ann Arbor, Michigan-based firm, is providing a unique version of its flight planning platform exclusively to AOPA members free of charge.

“AOPA is pleased to offer members access to a very capable web-based flight planner, customized with many features especially for AOPA pilots,” said Jiri Marousek, AOPA senior vice president of marketing. “Beginning April 22, members can use a customized version of iFlightPlanner accessible through any web browser on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. We have been working with iFlightPlanner to offer several new features not previously available, including options free to AOPA pilots that are otherwise only included in paid versions of their products.”

The planner combines the newer technology and graphical capabilities of iFlightPlanner with their version of a select set of features that were most commonly used by AOPA members in the legacy system. One of the most important additions will be a powerful web interface with FAA-produced aeronautical charts and other visual displays related to weather, airspace, and airport services designed to provide pilots the most current information to effectively plan their flights. READ MORE »

iFlightPlanner Introduces New Membership Tiers

Wednesday, April 22, 2020 @ 11:00 AM

In conjunction with AOPA's announcement of the customized version of iFlightPlanner now available to its members free of charge, iFlightPlanner has revised its available membership tiers.

Most notably is the introduction of iFlightPlanner Core, a set of essential flight planning tools with integrated web and iOS capabilities for $49.99/year.  Pilots flying with iFlightPlanner Core have access to interactive route planning with graphical weather overlays, the ability to retrieve certified weather briefs from Leidos Flight Service/1800WXBRIEF, and flight plan filing from any internet-connected device.  With wireless 2-way sync between iFlightPlanner for iPad and iFlightPlanner for iPhone, iFlightPlanner Core members can take their planning on the go with GPS moving map functionality for a true electronic flight bag (EFB) experience.

 

Enhanced functionality previously available through iFlightPlanner Premium and iFlightPlanner Premium Plus have been combined into a single iFlightPlanner Premium membership for $99.99/year.  Lead by multi-leg flight and fuel planning capabilities, an integrated weight & balance caluculator, pilot logbook, and georeferenced airport diagrams and instrument procedures in iFlightPlanner for iPad and iFlightPlanner for iPhone, iFlightPlanner's top-level membership is now more affordable than ever!

What's happening to my iFlightPlanner membership?

iFlightPlanner Free members now have access to iFlightPlanner Core, free for 60 days!

iFlightPlanner Premium members now have access to features previously reserved for iFlightPlanner Premium Plus members!

iFlightPlanner Premium Plus members now have access to all the features they've come to know and trust for less than $100/year!

iFlightPlanner's freely available charts interface with basic route planning will continue to be available at iFlightPlanner.com/AviationCharts.  Pilots who wish to upgrade their flight planning experience with iFlightPlanner Core or iFlightPlanner Premium may do so HERE, with AOPA members saving 20% on all annual memberships.
