    From Daniel@21:1/5 to All on Fri Apr 24 03:06:19 2020
    This is good news from pilots-on-a-budget like myself who utilizes
    AOPA's planning tool. What a relief.


    The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) announced the launch
    of a new online flight planner on Wednesday. The customized version of
    the iFlightPlanner platform is intended to replace the AOPA’s previous
    online flight planning tool, which is being retired at the end of the
    month. iFlightPlanner features include a Google Maps interface with U.S. aviation charts, stored routes, custom waypoints, altitude comparison, certified weather briefings and flight plan filing. It also offers
    overlays such as weather, current fuel prices, TFRs and special use

    “From day one, iFlightPlanner’s evolution has been driven by member feedback and this new version will be no different,” said iFlightPlanner Director of Business Development Andy Matthews. “We encourage AOPA
    members to share their feedback as they begin using the new planner and
    help shape new features to further enhance every member’s flight
    planning experience.”

    According to AOPA, stored flight plans and profiles set up through the
    previous planner prior to April 22, 2020, will be pre-loaded into iFlightPlanner. The planner is accessible through desktop web browsers,
    tablets and mobile devices. It is available for free to AOPA members.
