AFIDS + FltPlan.Com Integration

Attention FltPlan.com users:

We’ve integrated AFIDS with FltPlan.com so that you can automatically post any flight plans you file on FltPlan.com to AFIDS. This lets us know about the flights you are already planning so we can see if your route matches with any of our upcoming flights. If there is an opportunity to combine your planned flight with an Angel Flight mission, we’ll let you know.

The process is simple. You provide us with your FltPlan.com username. Anytime you file a flight plan on FltPlan.com, we get it automatically, no additional steps on your part. If you don’t want to receive alerts from us anymore, just let us know and we’ll remove your username from the system.

We know that many times you file your flight plan right before the flight. We encourage you to file earlier, when you first plan a flight, then update it right before the flight. The edit process is quite simple on FltPlan.com, and then we’ll get the advance notice we need to make a potential match.

To provide us your FltPlan.com username, you can send it to us by email at coordination@angelflightwest.org, or update your pilot information in your account settings in AFIDS.

We hope that this makes it easier for you to combine your flying with community service, which is what we’re all about. We’d love your feedback. Also, a big thanks to the folks at FltPlan.com who worked very enthusiastically to make this integration possible. We’re in discussions with ForeFlight and others to get the same kind of integration in place.

AFW “Regional Wings” Webpage

Angel Flight West is a grassroots, volunteer-driven organization. We are so fortunate to have an amazing team of volunteer leaders across our 13 Western states. As part of our new website launch, AFW has developed a webpage devoted to sharing information about each of the AFW Wings.

Wings Page Blog

You can now learn more about each wing by clicking on the corresponding geographic area on the map or by clicking on the wing tab in the panel below the map. You can now view the pilot in each wing with the most missions flown, the most recent mission in a given wing, and the newest pilot in a given wing. Also included is a calendar for each wing so that you can easily stay up to date and hopefully join us for some great events!

To learn more about each wing, please visit the Regional Wings Page at http://angelflightwest.org/regional-wings/ and click on the corresponding geographic area on our map.
