The AOPA Internet Flight Planner (AIFP) 2.0, powered by Jeppesen, is now available in beta for all AOPA members to test. The beta period is open through early 2015.
For the past several months, AOPA has been working closely with Jeppesen to bring AIFP 2.0 online. Members can access the flight planner and beta information now. Here you will find information on the beta application, instructions for submitting any bugs you encounter, and a link to access the flight planner.
In August, AOPA announced a change in its online flight planning member benefit. AOPA is retiring its current flight planner, FlyQ Web. A full transition and return to the Jeppesen-powered AIFP will occur in 2015 after AOPA is comfortable with the user experience. AIFP will remain a free member benefit.
It is important to note that AIFP 2.0 is a beta application, which means it is still in development and is not the final version. The purpose of releasing this version to AOPA members now is to garner feedback on any glitches or bugs. AOPA members are encouraged to report any issues discovered when using the flight planner so they can be documented and provided to our developers for resolution.
When users first log in, the application will attempt to import all of their user data from FlyQ Web. This includes the default pilot profile, all aircraft profiles, and flight plans on the user account. The import process could take a few minutes. It is very important that this process is not interrupted (do not close the browser window during the import process). Any information or routes that cannot be imported will be highlighted in the list with an explanation of import failure.
