How to create and modify flight plans in FlyQ EFB. 

  • Begin with at your PC or Mac with FlyQ Online for even easier, more precise flight planning and weather. Watch how FlyQ Online works.  

  • Use the Plans tab at the bottom of the FlyQ EFB screen and enter takeoff and destination airports. 

  • Create and modify plans by using the Direct To or +FP (Add to Plan) buttons anywhere you see an airport or navaid listed. 

  • Select Search and Rescue (CAP) grids and patterns from Plans/New Plan/Routing.

  • The Print button makes it easy to print using an AirPrint-compatible printer. The Email button allows you to email the plan as a PDF. 

  • On the map, press and hold to move existing points or add new points. 

  • Enter an entire flight plan in the Search box at the top of the screen. The first and last IDENTS are assumed to be airports so no need to use the 'K' to identify airports. 

  • Quickly create a flight plan by entering take-off and landing airport IDENT in the Search box, upper left-hand corner of FlyQ EFB.   

  • Enter a flight plan in the Search box - add a V to autoroute by Victor airways, G to autoroute by GPS Direct (which avoids terrain), or J to route by Jet airways. 

  • Select the routing method (Victors, GPS Direct, etc.). 

  • The autorouter optimizes your flight given the expected winds, not distance. 

  • Optionally, use the More button to select maximum altitude, initial fuel load, etc. 

  • The font-size button (“Aa”) makes the NavLog fonts larger and easier to read. 

  • Use the Wx Brief and ICAO Plan tabs to get a Leidos Wx briefing or to file a flight plan.
