Humanitarian Flights: Easily Enter STS/HUM in Item 18 of your
As the FAA continues plans to eliminate Domestic Format flight plans for general aviation, FltPlan stays on top of the changes. In our latest enhancement, FltPlan makes life a little easier for those of you creating flight plans for humanitarian reasons.
FltPlan takes care of the rest. We will automatically put STS/HUM in item 18, and also put your telephony (COMPASSION, ANGEL FLIGHT, or HERO-FLIGHT) in the remarks section of the flight plan.
FltPlan Go for Android
We’ve seen significant growth in use of our FltPlan Go Android app over the last year on both tablets and phones.
FltPlan Offers Flight Release for Part 135 and Commercial Operators
FltPlan now offers a Flight Release NavLog format for Part 135 and commercial operators. This premium option includes columns for the operator’s name, contingency fuel, enroute reserve, hold reserve, and pilot signature. The Flight Release NavLog also conforms to the requirements of FAR Part 121.687 and 125.403.
FltPlan’s Clearance Hotline
The upper right side of FltPlan's NavLog displays FltPlan’s Clearance Hotline number. On the rare occasion that ATC doesn’t have your clearance, you can use this number to contact FltPlan. We will immediately ask your username and check your account to see what the problem is.
With FltPlan’s new Clearance Hotline, you now have a 'friend', 24/7, who can quickly check what the issue might be and correct it for you. When warranted, we will refile the flight plan. This number is specifically for clearance issues; no other questions will be answered, as the line must be kept free for pilots with immediate clearance concerns.
FltPlan’s Clearance Hotline is just one more free service that FltPlan provides to help your flight go smoothly.
