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...
