Flight Plans (Importing and exporting) V2

Recommended Posts

Only VFR flight plans can be filed without an approach.  IFR flight plans must have an approach in the plan.

Interesting, I don't remember that from when I was flying.  I had to make sure weather was good enough for available approaches but never had to include an approach when filing a flight plan at a military base.  Did this change recently?  Also I am doing the same thing as I did before when importing a flight plan and have left the type of flight  play as whatever it was set to.  Assumed to be IFR.  Well if that's the way it is I guess I'll be flying VFR flight plans.  Never made sense to plan an approach when you don't know what the winds will be.

This is not a real world requirement.  That would vary from country to country. 

That is required by Pilot2ATC so the program knows what kind of approach you want.

OK thank you for the information.  I'll just adjust and possible just use VFR for the flight plan type going forward.
