MaxSez: I’m getting ready to break out the kiddy paddle! Whatsamatta you! Come on People Fly Right or stay in the basement Ruminating.
Flight Plans first. Ok the tutorial is complex on this required procedure. But even Simple Simon can get it right. The Plan Builder in Charts/Map’s in a masterpiece off simplicity. You have two options use a Planner App’s, cut and paste or do a Manual input like I do. I do it manually every time, Short & Long Hauls I select my waypoints, navaids and destinations by EyeBall. Just tap the link. The Plan Corrector at the bottom of the Plan Builder, the triangles, deletes etc. allows corrections ect.
Flight Plans are required IMC/VMC (No comment on this GA Sports Pilot crowd, I know the Truth and will cite the FAA Reg). Important: An acceptable Plan is Complete it has a start Airport and Terminal airport. Your Plan will be viewed by Controllers and Transiting Aircraft. Poor Plan, everyone knows your Simple Simond!
