MEMBER ALERT FOR April 26, 2013, 4:20pm:
Improvements to FlyQ Web have continued and we are pleased that a new version of the flight planner is now available in time for your weekend flying. Thanks to member feedback, we identified these issues soon after the initial release and have been working very hard to get them ready for your use as soon as we could. Version 1.2.111 includes:
- Import of AIFP (AOPA Internet Flight Planner) stored routes: If you had routes stored in AIFP, they will now automatically import once you log into FlyQ Web. This process takes a minute or two, but once complete, you will find your saved plans under the “Plans” window, select the “History” tab, and then look under “Favorite Plans.” If you believe you had routes stored in AIFP and they are not importing to your FlyQ Web account, please contact FlyQHelp@aopa.org for assistance.
- Adding/Deleting Favorite Routes: You can now easily designate a flight plan from your “Recent Plans” list as a favorite plan by selecting the star icon to the left of the plan name. You can edit your “Favorite Plans” list at any time. To remove a plan from your list of favorites, simply deselect the star next to its name.
- Editing a loaded flight plan. You now have the ability to edit fields after a flight plan has been loaded. Click “More” on the “Create/Edit” tab to change flight plan fields. Additionally, you can edit individual waypoints by selecting the “+” icon to the right of the waypoint. You can also enter a specific altitude for each waypoint. The only fields not currently available for edit after a plan is created are changing the departure or destination or selecting/deselecting auto-routing.
- Expanded Help resources: In addition to adding links to the video tutorials and FAQ document under the “Help” menu, we have added on-screen help resources on each of the most pertinent tabs.
Our programmers are continuing to work day in and day out on added capabilities and features. Look next for:
- The ability to create user-defined waypoints. (We know that in the transition to FlyQ Web from AIFP, some users lost stored waypoints. We have recovered all previous user waypoints and will soon be able to display those).
- Navigation log revisions and restoring it to the AIFP format
- Addition of a profile view which will show the terrain and airspace in relation to your planned route of flight
If you have questions, feedback or suggestions, please contact us at FlyQHelp@aopa.org and a member of our staff will respond as quickly as possible. We greatly appreciate your emails and will respond to each and every one.
Thank you for your continued support of FlyQ Web and thank you for your continued membership.
