Flightplans

I know that there are a lot of different sources for a flight plan, but I was wondering what a lot of other users use I currently use Flight plan Database. I have also used FlightAware and flptoif.

Fpltoif is the one I use the most. It uses both SimBrief and FlightAware which makes it very realistic. I also use charts to see what my SID’s and STAR’s are so that I can have an even more realistic flight.

Quite a few options listed here if you’re interested:

I personally use fpltoif. Super quick and easy to use.

Use Simbreif.com to make your flight plan Then copy the file and paste it here http://fpltoif.com/index to make if IF compatible

You’re going to want to copt the XML Dataset file for the conversion

Fpltoif already has it’s own SimBrief section! Although you do need to make a SimBrief account for it.

I prefer Flight Plan Database more than FPLtoIF. With FPLtoIF i find it hard as my computer doesn’t seem to like it.

But IF is a mobile game. What do you mean your computer doesn’t seem to like it? I sometimes get issues where I have to continuously log into SimBrief and it doesn’t save the password but that’s the only problem I get from PC/Windows.

well first i find a flight on flightradar24/radarbox, then, just like you i use flight plan database OR i create my own flight plan using skyvector, which takes more time but is still a great option i’d recommend

Just one question, how are you able to make a flight plan on SkyVector?

You can make a flight plan using Skyvector through Simbrief.com (go to Dispatch > New Flight > Enter in the necessary fields > Scroll down to flight plan > Find Skyvector logo). Not sure of other ways to do it.

i pull up the global charts and start tracing a flight plan by following the navigation aids, VORs, etc. i usually search for the airport charts, put in the departure procedure, then search the last aid on sky vector, then i just continue from there. i usually do this on smaller flights, but sometimes i also like to do them on bigger flights
