Online is where it’s at, and FltPlan. com allows corporate, charter and business aircraft users to create IFR flight plans online free of charge. The Web site provides a navigation log, weather data, IFR filing capability, airport information (including diagrams and a list of fields closest to a given city), passenger flight briefing sheets, low- and high-altitude en route charts and customized aircraft performance numbers.
The navigation log itself contains the flight plan and other essential operational data, such as fuel burn, estimated en route times and FBO information. To restrict access to authorized personnel only, users of the site must create a user name and password.
