Indeed looking very promessing, looking at TOPCAT which is at the top of proffessionalism almost can be used for real airplanes :(

It definitely looks very good and no doubt I'll buy it! Only slight "problem" is that I already use Vroute Pro which I love and has some very cool features for us VATSIMmers. Of course Vroute doesn't create routes, you choose among those in its database, and this softwares integration with TOPCAT also makes it even more tempting. How many pages will a full flight report create? The software should include some kind of "export PDF to ipad" feature! :D

The market already seems to be saturated with very good flight/dispatch planners, but given that this will be to the same standard as TOPCAT, I guess I'll be picking it up.

The only think that will convince me to leave FSBuild behind, is if it gives better routes and exports to all the addons that FSBuild supports. Otherwise I see no good reason to purchase it. Right now, I have the luxury of clicking "generate route" and see the route appear for all addons I have, all in the correct folder.

Benjamin, I agree with you, if it won't really set up a better flight plan than even the default FSX planner (whose navaids are terribly outdated), I'd go ahead with FSBuild or Super Flight Planner instead, although it does sound appeasing enough to have myself get out of the well outdated SID/STARS of CGK/WIII.

The export option you mentioned is a great idea, I have not had a good read of the forum but those would be great options to include.

Same here, FSBuild has been my mainstay for years and now that Ernie has come to an agreement with Navdata to provide regular AIRAC updates it is an even better package. Still disappointed about not being able to export flightplans in .rte2 format for PMDG.

Then I suggest you "update" your navaids here !!!!vololiberista

I don't know how PMDG rte2 differs from rte but here is from the export listing of the new 2.405 version of FSBuild is the PMDG export description.
