Does anyone know of any good FS flight planning software? I used to have a nice copy of FSBuild, but I lost that with my old computer, and it seems as though it is now payware. I have started using VATSIM, and would like to use accurate flight plans, so if anyone has any help, it would be appreciated.

BTW Just a second question, does anyone know, while playing multiplayer, how to use the text feature, that makes a message appear in the green bar on the top?

RouteFinder is excellent. It is web based and prints out routes using fixes, VOR/NDB points and most importantly airways that the 737 PMDG 800/900 FMC actually recognises. This cuts down on waypoint entry considerably.
check it out at;

Hi Gerry,

I went to the site that you provided a link for, and it looks great.

But is there a way I can incorporate that flight plan into my FS automatically?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

Thank you so much, Gerry, that is exactly what I was looking for!  hyper 

Now if anyone could answer Chris's question I'd be set.

So does anyone know how to convert the info on that site into usable FS flightplan files?

I believe the "payware" version does have that option...

Quoting RouteFinder Info:

Auto-Routing - Active (at the moment it is almost the same as the free area, with minor algorithm tweaks)
Route Editing - NOT YET OPERATIVE
Aircraft Performance calculations - NOT YET OPERATIVE
FMS Export - Plain text, SquawkBox, Flight Simulator 200X, FSNavigator, PMDG 737, X-Plane 7.30, Wilco's 767 PIC / Level-D 767
Charting - Ability to create SVG charts (Enroute-chart style) of any area of the globe. Each graphical feature is linked to the database (see below), so that with a mouse click it is possible to reveal more detailed informations.
Current limitations - big maps (e.g. entire Europe) may not be practical to plot with all information layers selected (performance considerations of the SVG Viewer).
Database - Ability to query the aeronautical database for: Airports, VOR/DME, NDB, Waypoints, FIR/UIR, PRD zones, Other restrictions, Airways, TMA/CTR/ATZ.
NOTAM - Ability to query the NOTAM database (e.g. to know all applicable NOTAMs for an airport, FIR, or to search for particular text / NOTAM number)

The price is 15 Euros for a 6 month period

Hope this helps!

Cheers! wave

Hmm... it might be worth looking at the freeware version and a Word macro.

When flying online with VATSIM, always remember to use lower and upper airways.
