New! Check Optimized Routes for Potential Time & Fuel Savings

IMAGEFltPlan now offers an Optimized Routes button on the flight plan entry page, which can provide you with time and fuel efficiency for your flights.

With FltPlan’s Optimized Route feature, actual Planned ATC Routes are calculated for time and fuel burn using the specific parameters of your current flight. The recent user routes and recent Planned ATC Routes are then sorted by the lowest ETEs and Fuel burn numbers while also showing how many times the route has been used as an actual clearance. As most professional pilots know, you can file with a computer-generated 'Optimized' route, but you’d be unlikely to get it unless the optimized route is the same as one of the ATC preferred routes.

Unlike other route optimization programs, FltPlan’s Optimized Routes gives you a realistic expectation that you will get what you filed.

Using Optimized Routes compares your aircraft’s performance data against available routes using the winds for your scheduled departure time. It’s as simple as filling in your flight plan data and clicking Press Here to Optimize Routes. FltPlan will then calculate your route, which will be populated with useful data such as Times Issued, ETE, Fuel, And Extra Distance.

FltPlan helps you plan ahead by showing you the best routes for your flight. Check out the Route Maps, with or without radar. To select one of the Optimized Routes, just click or tap the Copy button on the left side. For more information, click here.
