|News and Information for FltPlan Users • March 26, 2015|
Not a week goes by that we don’t hear a horror story from one of our users about a disgruntled employee, a job prospect, or an overzealous fan meeting a plane upon landing because they were able to track the flight. Your flight information and history are easily available from any computer, tablet, or smartphone. If you feel your flight schedule and history should remain private, you might want to either block your tail number or use one of FltPlan’s DCM (Dot Com) call signs.

Quick Tip: State Code for FSS and Clearance Delivery on NavLog
Perhaps you’ve noticed the numbers in parentheses after the FSS and Clearance Delivery phone numbers on the NavLog. These are the correct two or three-number state codes for being connected to the appropriate FSS Briefer. This way you can dial directly without having to listen to the various options over the phone.

eLogbook Enhancement: Sort by Aircraft Type

The eLogbook can be found by going to Main Menu > Tools or by tapping the Tools icon on your iPad or Android tablet. Your eLogbook must be set up on the full website, www.FltPlan.com, before using it on a mobile device.
