Possible to have a plan with intermediate stops?

Recommended Posts

I'm not a pilot - so it could just be that this is against convention. However, I'm wondering if it's possible to have a flight plan that has full stops at some intermediate airports? Right now, if it's possible - I can't figure out how to do it. I can add the intermediate stops, but it has no elevation changes and doesn't allow me to really plan a landing there (it kind of just treats them like flyover points or navaids). Generally, I kind of like planning out longer flights as a set of small hops for refueling, ...etc.

Reading online about this, it does appear the the general rule is that any takeoff and landing is one "flight" and this is typically handled with separate flight plans (anyone here kindly confirm). That's understandable, just wish there was some way I could plan and get everything from a multi-leg trip onto the map so I can see it all at once.

It depends on how much you are willing to handle yourself.

For a GA crosscountry flight, you can definitely load up a multiple leg flightplan.   You are responsible for managing the approach for each airport individually, but after each landing, you activate the next leg of the flightplan.

Unfortunately, MSFS and its Garmin avionics do not have the flexibility to support this, except in its most rudimentary form.

Still, our group flies multiple leg flight plans each week as we go on group flights together.

You can create a full flight plan with all the intermediate stops and export this for MSFS.
Then delete the not needed legs in LNM for the first part so you get the TOD for your first intermediate destination. No need to save.
For next part undo the change and delete unneeded legs again.
etc.
