FltPlan Links with Angel Flight West

Angel Flight WestFltPlan has integrated with the Angel Flight Information Database System (AFIDS) enabling FltPlan users to combine their flights with an Angel Flight mission. Angel Flight West is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization that arranges free, non-emergency air travel for children and adults with serious medical conditions and other compelling needs.

Angel Flight West’s current network comprises more than 1,400 pilots throughout the 13 western states. These pilots donate their aircraft, time, skills, and all flying costs to help people in need. These donations allow patients to receive vital treatment that may otherwise be inaccessible because of financial, medical, or geographic limitations.

It’s simple: Anytime an AFID-registered FltPlan user creates a flight plan, it is automatically posted to AFID. This enables Angel Flight West to determine if that route matches any upcoming Angel Flight missions. To provide Angel Flight with your FltPlan username, send it to Angel Flight West by email at, or update pilot information in “account settings” in AFIDS. Angel Flight West will remove usernames from the system for those who do not want to participate.

To use the measure tool, tap on the ruler icon from the top bar and a measuring tool box will appear. Tap on the screen at the two points you wish to measure the distance between. You will see an orange line with the distance measurement between the points. The distance will also be displayed in the measure tool box. You have the ability to select as many legs as you wish using the ruler function. The Reset button will reset your ruler measurements to zero.
