A new online flight planner puts more tools and upgraded features at AOPA members’ fingertips, empowering them to “fly smarter” with the latest addition to the AOPA FlyQ suite of digital flight planning tools.
AOPA’s new online flight planner, FlyQ Web™, provides robust and easy-to-use flight planning that automatically syncs with the other members of the AOPA FlyQ family—FlyQ Pocket for iPhone or Android smartphones and FlyQ EFB for iPads—for flight planning, aviation weather, and airport information anytime, anywhere. The current AOPA Internet Flight Planner will be retired Feb. 28.
Key features of the new flight planner include a larger chart viewing area, drag-and-drop waypoint editing (rubber banding), multiple routing options including auto-routing based on forecast winds aloft, quick access to airport and FBO information, easy-to-read weather map overlays, and much more. Users can receive legal weather briefings and file flight plans using either CSC DUATS or DTC DUAT. FlyQ Web replaces the AOPA Internet Flight Planner.
“AOPA’s online flight planner is consistently the most popular feature of our website,” says Chris Ward, AOPA vice president of eMedia. “We are continually looking for ways to improve our flight planning options for members and are proud to launch FlyQ Web as an example of that pursuit.”
FlyQ Web is free for AOPA members. Learn more at www.aopa.org/flyqweb.

The memory of a passenger who perished in an April 1945 airline accident continues to drive an effort to recognize notable achievements in aviation safety.
Discussing the pros and cons of possible routes, your CFII poses an unexpected question: “What is an air traffic clearance?”
