New for the Android
FltPlan.com's latest addition to our Android App lets you view and automatically save your NavLog and FAA Certified QICP Weather for offline viewing. In the past, pilots have been emailing their FltPlan.com NavLog and Route weather to their Android, but with our latest feature, it is all accomplished with the push of a button.
The FltPlan.com Android App is a companion tool to the FltPlan.com website. You can log in from a variety of sources, including your Android's browser, smartphone, laptop, or desktop. This makes it easy to transfer your flight plan routes, NavLogs, and Weather briefing to your Android device for offline viewing.
The App will use the information stored in the "Log-in to FltPlan.com" section as the default Username and password. You'll be asked to enter the information if need be. Then it's just the simple process of connecting and viewing your Active Flight Plan List and choosing what flight plans and information you wish to download. You can choose the Select All button to quickly download all available flight plans.
If you are a daily user of our App you will notice we've updated the main screen with color icons and a blue sectional map for a background.
And More for Android Users:
Share your NavLogs and Weather
Last month we announced that iPad users could share their NavLog and Weather with other users. Now Android users have the same option. FltPlan.com lets others (that you have authorized) view your NavLog, Wind Matrix and Weather briefings even if you use different account usernames. This is a great tool for operations where pilots use Androids in the cockpit, but have separate FltPlan.com accounts.
Access is restricted to just viewing the NavLog and Weather. Your account and flight plan data is protected from changes by other users.
Both pilots must 'opt in' using their respective accounts in the Default Settings page (left side of Main Menu page).
For those with large flight departments, FltPlan.com lets you include up to 20 FltPlan.com usernames that can be selected on/off, so usernames do not need to be re-entered.
Once this is done, a pilot will be able to choose from the current and future flight plans of the other pilot for viewing on their Droid for both online and offline viewing.
Keep checking the FltPlan.com FltBrief Newsletter for new enhancements.
It's Not Too Late:

Our Weight and Balance Calculator Now Includes Turboprops
This month we expanded our Weight and Balance collection with our new turboprop feature. This feature not only provides a standard Weight and Balance template for pilots to use but we also have the capability to enter in a variable fuel arm. Since Weight and Balance can be a tedious task for you pilots, we plan to make Weight and Balance a possibility for aircraft of all single & multiengine pistons and single & multiengine turboprops. We just recently added a Cessna 425 Conquest I, Piaggo P180 Avanti, King Air F90 and are planning to add many more. If you would like to have your aircraft included in our diverse collection of aircraft models please email Courtney@FltPlan.com.
