Convert your Google Earth KML's into IF Flight Plans

Are you tired of making interesting flight plans in google earth but then having to do long conversions to stick them in Infinite Flight?

If the answer is yes then continue reading.

If the answer is no, then here is a picture of a CRJ KML flight I did a while back to make you think this is somewhat interesting.

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that this is not my idea, but Skyhigh gave me the idea and as the link for that no longer works I thought I would tackle it on my day off.

So without further ado here it is:

If you need any help in getting the KML file then SkyHigh did a fantastic tutorial here

Just a couple of must reads about this:

  • Paste the co-ords only ( The bit between the Coordinates tags)
  • Only works if the path is clamped to the ground
  • Rounding errors may make certain parts of the path look out of place, just change the co-ord by one and it should be fine (Should not happen too much)
  • If you spot any errors then please let me know!

Thanks for reading!

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to post a bit of an update on this.

Since I made this a few people have come to me with serval issues;

  • It would break if you pasted a co-ord over 100 degrees (sorry for you aussies out there)
  • It would break if you pasted a Co-ord under 10 degrees (Google sheets doesn’t like keeping the 0 ahead of a number)
  • It would break if you pasted a Co-ord under 1 degree (I’m Just an idiot on that one, forgot a space bar)

These issues are all fixed ( Hopefully) and if you have any other issues with it feel free to ask me and I’ll do my best to fix it.

Happy flight planning,

Adam.

Hello @AdamCallow, I have the coordinates now. So do I just need to insert the coordinates into Infinite Flight? Thanks


Also how do I take the picture of the picture of the earth? Screenshot 2020-05-28 at 16.25.24

Try the free version of OneNote

If you have the co words then just paste them into the search bar in IF.

Okay, thank you. I will have a go later :)

@AdamCallow it did not work :(

That is exactly what happened for me aswell! Like to hear what we are doing wrong!

Hello, thats because you need to use the spreadsheet above to convert them into a format that IF can read. I can see from your search bar you have just pasted the KML co ords into IF

How do we use the thing above?

You copy your co ords from the KML file
Click the box on the spreadsheet where it says
Press the space bar
Paste in co ords
Copy the output
