NEW! Dynamic Fuel Finder & Custom Airspace Tool

Thursday, March 01, 2018 @ 9:00 AM

We are excited to introduce an all-new Dynamic Fuel Finder and Custom Airspace Tool today, both the result of a soon-to-be-released overhaul of our web planning platform...  Click any of the screenshots below for access to our freely accessible aviation charts interface at www.iFlightPlanner.com/AviationCharts to try them out!

Dynamic Fuel Finder

Use the Dynamic Fuel Finder to identify the best fuel prices around any location, and quickly add that airport to your trip with just a few clicks!  All prices are color-coded using the same algorithm used in our Graphical Fuel Price Map Layers that were highlighted in iFlightPlanner's 4 Tools to Help Burn Less Fuel and Fly Faster tutorial.

Start by clicking the fuel tank icon in the footer of the Location menu.  iFlightPlanner will search and display all airports within a 75nm radius of your chosen location, whether it's along a route you've already planned or in the vicinity of your next destination.  Clicking a fuel price will reveal that facility's Airport Fuel menu with details about the airport and the pricing offered by each FBO.  To add the airport to your route, simply click the green, "Add To Route" button and you'll be on your way!

Custom Airspace Tool

The all-new airspace tool gives you the ability to add custom range rings or circular airspace of any size, around any location, airport, or navaid, with user-defined altitude limits!  Each range ring can be set to display during all planning sessions, for a particular trip, or for a specific flight only.

This feature is perfect for UAS operators wanting to identify their center of operations just as it is for general aviation pilots in search of fun destinations within the range of their aircraft!

The Custom Airspace Tool is accessed by clicking the icon to the left of the fuel tank.  Simply enter the radius, altitude limits, and a name or description, and click "Save Custom Range Ring."  To edit or delete an existing range ring, click on the label as shown here.

Location Menu

The Location Menu, which is where steps to use the new Dynamic Fuel Finder and Custom Airspace Tool begin, is accessed by a single click in any of iFlightPlanner's web-based mapping interfaces.  This redesign allows us to add other location-based enhancements in the future, so stay tuned!

If you have any questions about these new features, or have an idea for a new one you would like to see added to iFlightPlanner, please contact us!

Connecting X-Plane to iFlightPlanner

Wednesday, December 06, 2017 @ 10:00 AM

Revised for X-Plane 11 on December 6, 2017.

As described in an earlier iFlightPlanner Blog post, you have the ability to connect connect your iPad to your favorite flight simulator and make iFlightPlanner for iPad behave as if it were flying in the virtual skies with you!

The iFlightPlanner Installation & Setup Guide available in that post was a little soft on the details on how to connect with X-Plane so we're here to offer some clarification for our iFlightPlanner Premium members who are taking advantage of this functionality that's included in their memberships. Know that you will only need to refer to the step-by-step instructions starting on on Page 3, beginning with Step 8, as X-Plane does not require the FSXFlight Plugin.

In X-Plane you will want to go to Settings > Network > iPhone & iPad Tab and select "Transmit to a single copy of ForeFlight, WingX Pro, Aerovie, FltPlan Go, & SkyDemon on the network" or "Broadcast to all copies of ForeFlight, WingX Pro, Aerovie, FltPlan Go, & SkyDemon on the network" (see additional screenshot). 


Click screenshot to enlarge.

If you choose to transmit to a single copy of iFlightPlanner, be sure and note the "IP Address for Sim" on the Settings menu in iFlightPlanner for iPad.  You'll want to enter the IP Address of your iPad in X-Plane, verify the Port is set to 49002, and click Done.  Once back in iFlightPlanner for iPad, simply select the Simulator GPS from the Settings menu and you'll be on your way!

As always, please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.  There is a thread in the iFlightPlanner Forums with some great conversation and feedback on how pilots are using iFlightPlanner in the virtual cockpit and we invite you to join in!

FAA Removes SID Chart Obstacle Notes to Cut Clutter

Wednesday, August 16, 2017 @ 8:00 AM

With the August 17 AIRAC cycle, pilots will find revised Standard Instrument Departure (SID) charts easier to read because the FAA is removing the takeoff obstacle notes from them.

The obstacles are still there, said Rich Boll, chair of the Airspace, Air Traffic, and Flight Technology Working Group of NBAA’s Access Committee. “If these obstacles are a factor on departure, pilots will find the necessary information in the Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedure section, which are located on the front of the government charts and on the back of Jeppesen’s 10-9 airport chart.”

iFlightPlanner for UAS Operations

Friday, February 03, 2017 @ 8:00 AM

iFlightPlanner’s freely accessible aviation charts interface is the perfect resource for UAS operators to pinpoint lat/lon coordinates, identify the nearest airport, view airspace details, and prepare their description of the proposed operation when requesting a waiver and/or airspace authorization under Title 14 CFR Part 107 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR).

We have created iFlightPlanner for UAS Operations (PDF) to help bridge the gap between the features of iFlightPlanner currently designed for manned flight and how they can be leveraged by unmanned operators.

The tutorial is a step-by-step guide to gathering the information necessary to submit a waiver or authorization through the FAA DroneZone.  It's important for all operators to review the Step-by-Step Application Process, Waiver Application Instructions, and Waiver Safety Explanation Guidelines as published by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) before any operations.

» iFlightPlanner for UAS Operations (PDF)

If you have questions specific to planning your UAS operations with iFlightPlanner that were not covered in the tutorial, please send us a message!
