your airport clouded in? file an IFR on the go!

Recommended Posts

With the "no reload on GPS flightplan" thingy in FSIUP, you can go to flightplanner enroute, select the closest airport, your destination, and you can file IFR, and pick up a popup clearance to your airport...its pretty neat I thinkI was enroute from meigs to oshkosh testing the stock baron with the garmin530 of the c421 (neat actually) and I had active sky loaded and all of a sudden oshkosh was overcast (poor flight planning) and so I had to file a pop up IFR and it worked!I am on vectors right now, I should go check if ATC chicky is talking to mepeace y'all

Perhaps this will mean that we can now fly several legs without the sim reloading. Land, file the new flight plan and take off immediately.

Wow. . .sounds cool! Out of curiousity, what do you select for your departure airport? I can't wait to try this when I get home!-drewEDIT:I just tried it at work. . .using both departure and arrival airport as KLAX. When I saved the FP and clicked "OK", it started vectoring me for an approach to 25L. I thought it was really cool, but seconds later it cancelled my IFR plan. Any ideas why? Did I do something wrong? should be cool when it works tho! :7 (keyword: WHEN) :7

if you are in the air, sometimes you need to call that airport's local clearance frequency (the one you 'filed from') to get the clearance and then go back to approach/centre/whathaveyou... but its pretty neat actually
