Hello,

Was looking for a flight planner for the CRJ 900 and came across Skyvector. Not sure if it's the right tool to use but someone recommended using Simbrief? Anyone use this and will my flight plan automatically load into the CRJ? I'm new to this and would like to know. Thanks everyone.

All I use is Simbrief.  It’s fast and easy to use.  Plus it’s free.  U should be able to create a flight plan and import into the CRJ.

Please don't take this badly as it's not how I mean it (at all), but Simbrief is free, you don't have to install anything on your system, so I'm wondering why you didn't just go and try it instead of soliciting opinions.  Go and try it for yourself, it's the only way you'll know.

Best wishes.

To answer the original question, yes Simbrief will create plans you can import into the CRJ.  As posted above it's free, and remarkably easy to use.

A perfect tool. You get operational flight plans in the same format as pilots in the real world. And once you set up your aircraft etc, it's super easy and flexible. Fuel calculations are exceptional on PMDG 737.

Just a little point to know.... This soft is well linked with navigraph.  Navigraph is a payware... Yes, You may stay basically on the version 1703 of airacs.

But... but if only one time you need to align the sim and all fms aircrafts with a common airac... the only solution, (to deal the complete information),  is to actualise all parts with navigraph on his least version of airac...

That implicated, rapidly, a permanent subscription... if you want new aircrafts, or having "no missing" points, or perhaps crashes with the importation of the future sim brief pln.

That said, the simbrief is a wonderfull program. I use and like it.

Since Simbrief introduced the downloader which installs plans into the correct folders automatically, I'm using it exclusively.

Update: I signed up with simbrief, watched the video tutorials (really helpful btw), created a flight plan and downloaded the CRJ 700 flight plan. I inputed the flight plan to the correct flight plan folder under the CRJ folder which was fine. Now prior to using Simbrief I would just use the P3D default flight planner using VOR waypoints. So when I would ask for clearance ATC knows where I'm heading. Question is now , how do I get ATC in P3D to give me clearance using a flight plan in Simbrief? Anyone know where I'm going with this? I'm using default ATC which I've enjoyed using in the past.

Also, when I dispatch a flight plan in Simbrief, how do I delete it? I tried doing it yesterday but it couldn't remove at this time or some error like that.

Save your simbrief flight plan in the fsx/P3d format and save it to a known location.  Open your flight planner and import into the sim flight planner.  Done

I'll try this out. How do I save it as a P3D format?

U downloaded it the same way as u would for your CRJ except pick the format for the P3D flight planner.  It should be listed as FSX, P3D with a .pln format.

You really should look into that downloader, it's way better than I initially thought

You set up paths to your P3D folder and for whatever plane you use (there are many formats).  From there, you will just go into the P3D flight planner and load it.  Same for your aircraft FMC file.  It automatically loads whichever format needed and places them in the correct folder (that you specify).  Pretty cool actually.  I used to have to download extra files and put them in the P3D, PMDG, and ProATX-X folders individually. Now it's more or less automatic... very convenient

I loaded up a Flight plan this morning that was very long with many airways, and fixes, using the downloader into the NGX FMC. It worked perfectly.
