Use a Lat/Long as Your Departure or Arrival Point

In the past, FltPlan only allowed you to create a flight plan departing or arriving an airport with a valid FAA or ICAO identifier. In our latest update, you can now file flight plans to or from airstrips or locations without an ID by using a lat/long. For our seaplane pilots, you can also enter the lat/long for a lake or other body of water.

When creating your flight plan, simply enter the lat/long in the Departure Airport or Arrival Airport field. The correct format for entering the lat/long is ####N/#####W, where ####N is the latitude and #####W is the longitude (example: 4116N/07334W or 3559N/11432W). You can get a quick reminder of this by hovering over the information icon. As a note, the use of tenths of minutes or seconds cannot be processed by the FAA when filing a flight plan.

Lat/longs can be used as departure or arrival locations for filing either IFR or VFR flight plans. IMAGE
