Another free VFR Flight Planner

Recommended Posts

VfrFlight is a free tool for VFR flight planning developed by real world private pilot. It can be used for real world flight planning and trainings in FSX / FSX:SE / Prepar3D.
It is under continuous development since October 2013.

I didn't try it yet, so no comments to add...

 I was trying it for a while now ( i think that i started a topic with it or maybe i just wanted to do). It has some interesting thingies (like the 3d map), it's worth a try.

It has a couple of cool features (a few maps&some calculations) but also looks a bit clunky in some areas compared to PlanG IMO. Then again if I started with this one I probably wouldn't want to try PlanG because I'm used to it. :D  One thing I do wish PlanG had was the ability to input a route string and build a plan off it.

 

I'll wait and see what Matt thinks between the two before I try it out it would be nice to see a comparison review.

Well...might be a non-starter for me. It doesn't have an installer, it apparently runs from it's downloaded folder??? windows considers it an Untrusted application, and requires me to download and install Java Runtime Enviorment...

 

Do I want this?

It does. Bring up the Quick Plan window (the "Direct to" button) ant type / paste your route into the box.

:th_blush: Ooops, you know all these years and I never used that button, have always used the Find button instead. :th_blush: 

 

Thanks for that Tim. :hat:
