Flight Planner hard to use

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if someone could shed some light as to why the flight planner is so hard to use. Once I select the route and altitude, it is near impossible to get the mouse to drag the route to add waypoints. Sometimes the red line for the route won't even move. Any suggestions anyone? Any insight will be very appreciated.

I use the inbuilt flight planer to say set the basic way points for either VOR to VOR or low and high altitude airways then I save the flight plan and use PLAN-G to add additional things when im finished with that I then export out of PLAN-G and load the new flight-plan a bit of mucking around but good thing with plan-g you can connect it to P3D and use it as a moving map.

 

PLAN-G

 

All I can say is the Flight planer in P3D has always been like that even when all we had to use was FSX

Thanks, I'll check out the link. The P3D flight planner is a bit of a nightmare.

Hi,

 

if you want to fly VFR, and don't need IFR points, you can try http://vfrflight.org.

It is meant to be as easy to use as possible, yet powerful enough.

Looks great for VFR flight Lukasz - especially like the satellite view option.

 

Can I run this flight planner on a network PC using Simconnect or FSUIPC?

 

Thanks

Adam, download the full English manual and check out section 5.2 for the "yes you can" answer... :Whistle:

Previous post got me confused if you are asking about VfrFlight or PlanG.

However, VfrFlight can't do this comunication right now, but it could be someday on my TODO list  :rolleyes: .

Currently I am working on integration better worldwide data with navaids frequencies etc.
