Flight planning software

Recommended Posts

PSS I hope this thread is not breaching any rules? Pls advise if it is.What flight planners do people recommend? (payware or freeware)Ideally I would like something that has a map view and will calculate alternates, give fuel burn predictions, estimated times etc. If it can export to the 777 obviously that's a bonus but the other features are more important to me.

Hi Mark,I have been using FS Nav for about a month. Used the trial version before buying and was impressed. Been using it with the T7 with no problems.Carl

Aparently FSbuild planing algorthm needs some work, as i noticed that sometimes it uses questionable (for altitude) airways (which i dont really care for)and the routes are sometimes up to 1000 mi longer than the ones prepared by Route Finder by http://rfinder.asalink.net/free/ http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/36/36_1_16.gifhttp://www.avsim.com/pss/banner_es.jpghttp://online.vatsimindicators.net/855693/848.png

>Aparently FSbuild planing algorthm needs some work, > by Route>Finder by http://rfinder.asalink.net/free/ You do know that you can use FSBuild to get the routing from Route Finder (its on one of the bottom tabs)You then take that, put it in the blue bar of FSBuild, click build et voila! One nice shiney new flight plan ready to import as an FS9 plan (and hopefully soon as a native 777 file)
