FltPlan Helps You File the Correct SID or STAR for your Aircraft

Did you know that FltPlan’s flight plan creation system matches your aircraft type against the SIDs and STARs in your route? What this means to you is that, if an arrival or departure has restrictions that would prohibit you from being assigned it, FltPlan gives you a heads up. You will receive an error message letting you know that the SID or STAR is not compatible with your aircraft type, so that you can go back and select one that works for you.

Available SIDs and STARs, along with any restrictions, can be found by scrolling down on the Flight Plan Creation page. IMAGE

Adding the Operator Name to your ICAO Format Flight Plan

In the continuing move toward ICAO format, the FAA is now requiring that Part 135 operators indicate their operator name in Item 18. With FltPlan, it’s a simple one–time process to set your account up to include this information in all of your ICAO format flight plans.

To add OPR information to your ICAO data, go to Main Menu > Settings > A/C ICAO Data and select the A/C. Under Emergency Contact & Aircraft Operator / Owner Info complete the Operator Name field.

While you’re there, please check to make sure your emergency contact name and phone number are current. This is the number FltPlan will call if there is an incident or accident, so please don’t enter your own contact information.
