iFlightPlanner QuickTip : Your Preferred Chart & Routing Method

Wednesday, January 28, 2015 @ 8:00 AM

Not only can you choose your default auto-routing method, iFlightPlanner now allows you to customize your flight planning experience with your preferred type of aviation chart!  Each time you access iFlightPlanner the chart you use most in your flight planning - VFR Sectional, TAC, IFR Low, IFR High, Street Map, Satellite or Hybrid will automatically be displayed.

These settings are available to all members in the Flight Wizard Options section of your Aviation Profile.  There you will also be able to format how latitude/longitude is displayed throughout iFlightPlanner as well as default settings for your Digital Logbook and Weight & Balance Calculator.

Should you have any questions about these, or any of the other features available on iFlightPlanner, please don't hesitate to contact us!

Available map layers now include hi-resolution RADAR, Infrared and Visible Satellite imagery, all of which can be synchronized for a comprehensive visual representation of current meteorological conditions and match the presentation found in iFlightPlanner for iPad.  Use the Map Layers menu in the upper-left corner of the Google Maps interface to access these great new mapping features!

ATC Route Change Notifications for IFR Flight Plans

Friday, January 9, 2015 @ 8:00 AM

Pilots who indicate they would like to receive confirmation that their IFR flight plan has been filed will now also receive notifications of any route modifications made by ATC.  

This enhancement, made possible by CSC DUATS, is available to all iFlightPlanner members regardless of one's membership type!  Simply check the appropriate box on the flight plan filing screen in iFlightPlanner for iPad or iFlightPlanner.com (shown) and messages will be sent via email or text accordingly.

The route change notifications expands on the existing functionality pilots have to easily search for and plan any route issued by ATC within the past thirty (30) days.  Choosing "Recent ATC Route" as your routing method will produce a list of routes that you are likely to receive clearance for between your departure and destination airports.  In addition to the exact routing, you'll see the number of times that route has been issued, the date and time of last issuance and the altitude(s) for which it was cleared.  Selecting a route will automatically populate the details of that route into the online Flight Wizard or Planning Console in iFlightPlanner for iPad.

Stay tuned as we will be introducing a number of great new features in the coming weeks!  As always, please don't hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about your iFlightPlanner experience...
