|News and Information for FltPlan Users • June 18, 2015|
If you have plans for flying to Canada this summer, please remember FltPlan has the Canadian paper charts you need. Whether TAC (VTA) & sectional charts (VNC), hi/low enroute charts, approach charts (CAP), or Canadian Flight Supplement (including the water supplement), FltPlan can meet your needs.
Entering an NDB in Your Route
When you’re creating your Canadian flight plan, you may need to enter an NDB. That’s no problem as long as you are entering it correctly. The only difference for entering an NDB (versus a VOR) is that you must put "-NDB" after the fix identifier. The correct format is XXX-NDB, where XXX is the NDB fix identifier. Example: DIW-NDB or CLB-NDB.
FltPlan Go Apptitude: How to Adjust Notification Settings on FltPlan Go
Our new auto sync feature on FltPlan Go has been a phenomenal success, with hundreds of thousands of NavLogs and Weather Briefings being automatically downloaded to iPads, iPhones, and Android devices. Part of this system is a notification that new information has been downloaded. This is designed to alert users to new Routes, NavLogs, Checklists, and changes to any W & B profile. You can control whether or not you receive these notifications, without affecting the auto syncing.
On an Android device there is only one place to turn off Notifications. The steps are:
Filing SIDs and STARs correctly and easily with FltPlan.com
When you file with FltPlan.com, make sure you are filing a SID or STAR that is appropriate for your aircraft type and equipment. This will avoid problems or changes either before departure or enroute as you approach your destination. The most recent user route or Planned ATC routes may show the ALB.NOBBI5 arrival into KHPN (White Plains), but this doesn't mean you should use it if you are flying a Hawker H25B. What you should file is the ALB.VALRE5. Why? The ALB.NOBBI5 is for turboprops less than 250kts, and the ALB.VALRE3 is for aircraft greater than 250kts.
82.6% of all N#-registered flight plans for Cessna Citations (from C500 to the Citation X) were filed by FltPlan in May.
