OK I have got it, by now I am not able to open the route planner. It seems to be blocked.
OK sorry I did not do in the right way, I must create the route first !

Hello I have a bug today (yesterday October 8 was fine)
on 2 differents computers, same error:
Message that appear :
Elevation did not load:
TypeError: Failed to fetch
Flight Plan is great. Thanks.
Thank you!!! Let me know if you think of any improvements.
Can you add native support of Skydemon route files? It saves a route in 6 different file formats including GPX, but it uses a slightly different strings compared to the way your plugin creates a GPX. Also, Skydemon's *.flightplan file has the most proprietary data available.
Try loading a skydemon
Still not able to save in their format.
I also added the mobile sliding-close style. (Dark theme not right yet)
@rittels great! Thank you very much! Saving is not a big deal, because I only use loading function to check weather along my route.
Can you re-check it one more time, please? For some reason, Flight Planner doesn't pick up the first (starting) point from *.flightplan route file.
PS: I re-uploaded my RAR-file, because url was broken.
@igor-320 try now
@rittels thanks! Is it possible to include altitudes as well?
your example goes from level=3000, to level="MSL", then up again to 5000.
Test a few more examples.
@rittels year, the 1st leg = 3000ft msl,
2nd = 5000,
3rd = 4000,
4th = 3000.
The plugin loads altitudes, but they values don't match for some reason.
< PrimaryRoute CourseType="GreatCircle" Start="N501953.00 E0155714.00" Level="3000" CruiseProfile="ISA 1000ft - 2270rpm" Rules="Vfr" PlannedFuel="113.560000"> < RhumbLineRoute To="N500925.45 E0152302.00" Level="MSL" LevelChange="B" /> < RhumbLineRoute To="N500907.45 E0145006.55" Level="5000" LevelChange="B" /> < RhumbLineRoute To="N502259.35 E0152304.85" Level="4000" LevelChange="B" /> < RhumbLineRoute To="N502548.00 E0151959.00" Level="MSL" LevelChange="F" /> < WeightBalance> ... < /WeightBalance> < ReferencedAirfields /> < /PrimaryRoute>
Your example shows: 3000-> MSL -> 5000 -> 4000 -> MSL, but I think I get it now: The PrimaryRoute contains the default level, and if the later routes says only MSL, it implies the default Level.
What does LevelChange mean?
It took me a while to figure out myself how things works (I'm not very tech-savvy person) 😅
MSL is a default value for route altitude that's set in aircraft options (aircraft - edit - climb & descent). In the above's example it's repeated for the first and the last leg of a flight. I checked out my aircraft settings, and it's set for 3000 above mean sea level.
LevelChange="B" (Change level before this leg starts)
LevelChange="F" (Start changing level when this leg starts)
See screenshot below.
Thanks for taking a time to implement it! 👍
PS: you can you download Skydemon and try to make your own tests? It's free in trial mode for 1 month.
Thanks for the explanation. I have been planning on doing this for a while. Thx for the inspiration.
Is this thread still active? The flight planner is great. I have been using it to plan a route to take advantage of winds aloft. Pulling the aircraft location along the IFR window I see ground speed in addition to airspeed on the popup window that moves along the route and the forecast updates as it moves along. This is really nice functionality.
The problem I have is that the forecast updates on elapsed time according to airspeed alone, so after a day of flying the forecast updates to the wrong time. With a hundred knot tailwind after a day I am thousands of miles beyond where it thinks I am. The same thing shows up in the flight planner panel, where the elapsed time does not include the impact of tailwinds. Am I missing something?
Here is the route if you are interested.
@niio As an update when I reloaded the plugin and the flight plan, then ran 'play' for the forecast all the ground speed data also loaded. It looks like the air speeds were taken from zero elevation even though the flight plan and wind displayed was from 39kft.

Thanks for using the plugin.
Do you click the
