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).

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 how active and future TFRs are depicted on the maps to better inform members 
  • 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!

Monday, November 25, 2019 @ 8:00 AM

We're excited to share that we will be sunsetting our original, single-leg flight planning process (the Flight Wizard) and transition all members to the more versatile multi-leg Trip Manager on December 15, 2019 at 08:00Z!

The Trip Manager interface builds on the step-by-step Flight Wizard, ensuring every aspect of your flight, from interactive route and weather planning, the retrieval of certified weather briefs, weight & balance calculations, flight plan filing, and record keeping via your digital log book, is completed in sequential, efficient steps.

All personal settings, aircraft, and flights created via the Trip Manager will continue to automatically sync wirelessly with iFlightPlanner for iPad, currently available in the App Store.  Current iFlightPlanner members should point their browser to www.iFlightPlanner.com/My/Trips/Trip to access the all-new Trip Manager and www.iFlightPlanner.com/My/Settings to set it as their default planning interface prior to December 15.

Please contact us should you have any questions!
