Different altitudes for different plan legs Messages in this topic - RSS

Is there a way to specify a different altitude for each leg of the flight?
An overwater leg might use a higher altitude than an overland leg as an example. Flying around the Cheaspeake Bay has me wanting to plan like that....

Thanks!

Thanks for your post!

Within one flight (one takeoff, one landing), there is unfortunately not a way to specify different altitudes. We've had a couple members ask about this, but we have a few limiting factors that currently prevent it from being possible. Specifically, our underlying navigation log generator software and the FAA's weather briefs and filed flight plans only support a single cruising altitude per flight.

If you are making a stop at an airport between the overland leg and the over water leg, we certainly recommend planning the trip as separate individual flights in iFlightPlanner, in which case you may select a different cruise altitude for each, but I don't believe that is the situation you are referring to here.

If at some point in the future we can make it happen for you, we certainly will!
