how to sync with Foreflight?
There was a recent announcement that iFlightPlanner can now sync flight plans with various EFBs, however it's not obvious on the web app how to set that up. It's not in the iFlightplanner Guide either. i'd like to be able to create a flight plan in iFlightplanner and have it show up in Foreflight. Since I have AOPA enabled in 1800wxbrief, that will give me a way to activate a flight plan by text, where planning a flight on Foreflight alone does not.

Yes, the ability to transfer flights planned in iFlightPlanner for AOPA to your preferred EFB happens through iFlightPlanner's apps for iPad and iPhone with an iFlightPlanner Core or Premium membership - which are available to AOPA members at a discount, HERE.

Once a flight is planned and saved through iFlightPlanner for AOPA it will be available to be viewed (and flown) in the iFlightPlanner apps as a standalone EFB.  However, if you would like to push the flight on to ForeFlight, Garmin Pilot, FltPlan Go, FlyQ, Wing X, or the Jeppesen apps, follow these steps:
  1. Open the iFlightPlanner in-app Settings and scroll to the Bring Your Own EFB section and enable your preferred EFB.
  2. Navigate to the Flights tab where you will see all flights planned online with iFlightPlanner for AOPA.
  3. Tap on the flight you wish to push to your EFB; the route of flight will be displayed on the map.
  4. Push the flight to your EFB using the Share icon in the upper-right corner of the display (it's a square with an arrow pointing up).
Please let me know how that works for you!
