There are many use cases for Flight Plans and we’re sure you will come up with more. Below are different uses for Flight Plans and how to create them.

Important notes

1. Refly can still be accessed with tab at the top of the Flight Plans menu.
2. Download maps in the Flight Plans menu for use offline. This will save the map at the location and zoom level on the screen with the flight path.
3. Only the name of a Flight Plan can be edited without creating a new plan. This ensures data is consistent for future analysis.
4. Flight Plans can be duplicated and renamed if you want the path to be the same but the flight settings to be different.
