Integration a result of AOPA member requests

A new integration between iFlightPlanner and iFly GPS allows flight plans to be wirelessly synced on Android, Windows, and Apple mobile devices.

The integration comes as part of the Bring Your Own EFB program that iFlightPlanner launched earlier this year at AOPA members’ request.

AOPA members who use iFlightPlanner for AOPA, along with iFlightPlanner Core and Premium subscribers, can enjoy several new features:

  • Enhanced navigation log options to include AOPA kneeboard format.
  • More intuitive color-coded airmets and sigmets on interactive maps.
  • Notifications when amendments to flight plans are required.
  • Reformatted weather and notams in flight document to kneeboard format, combining pages to conserve paper.

Wirelessly syncing an iFlightPlanner flight plan with iFly GPS is available only to iFlightPlanner Core and Premium subscribers. AOPA members who use the free iFlightPlanner for AOPA version would need to upgrade their iFlightPlanner subscription. (iFlightPlanner is offering a discounted price to AOPA members.)

Learn more about the new features during this recorded livestream hosted by AOPA Director of Product Development Eric Rush.
