What Flightplanner?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

What flightplanner do you guys use/recommend?

 

I use V-Route and have done for a few years but i'd like something with a bit more depth when it comes to choosing sids/stars.

 

So what's out there and what do you guys recommend?

 

Cheers everyone :smile:

Hello

I use and recommend FSCommander, allows you to load the weather into the planner to help you determine landing runway then visually select Sid , Star and transitions.

Can you optimize routes for winds ?

I will be using PFPX when it comes out!

 

For now I use Plan-G for VFR, Topcat for TO and fuel calcs and Aivlasoft EFB to build IFR plans.


Cheers!

Hello

You know it can't , that's exactly why you asked.

But what other Planner can lay out SIDS/Stars visually , detect VFR airspace violations , act as a moving map ect.

Not wishing to get into a pi****g contest over a flight planner though, use whatever you fancy.

cheers

Same here. Have it installed on my networked computer and then import the flight plan in to AS2012 and am all set to go.

FS Commander for me too. I do also have FSBuild, and liked it for ages, but for me, FSC definitely has the edge.

If you can wait, why not see how PFPX pans out - currently slated for a release late summer...


Cheers!

Fsbuild (and yes, I do also have fs commander), Topcat and Aivlasoft EFB (which by the way makes fs commander look very childish when it comes to Sid and Star selection.
