It’s 7:19 central tiime so I may be too early running flight planning through it’s paces… Plus figure to give some basic feedback on my experiences on navigating through the web pages.
Problems encountered (obviously beta so expected)
Setting up profiles, I was only able to get one profile successfully set up (climb). I could not delete the erroneous profiles. The erroneous profiles were / (or may) have been user induced by entering too quick without all the fields being completed. I get service interrupted errors at the bottom of the screen (too early?) and there are no “edit” buttons to go back to the erroneous profiles and either edit or delete them.
On altitudes, it was a little confusing on altitudes. Rather then specify 0 1000 2000 3000 and so on, if it’s possible to set up a range of altitudes I.E 0-4000, 6000-9500 and the like. If it’s there already, then maybe an example provided above the box.
I saw airports on the flight planning part listed, probably from past flights for suggested departure and arrival. Are they suppose to be clickable?
For mandatory entries, have the web page prompt you immediately rather then get an error page after entering the data. I tried the flight plan part, didn’t put in the min / max altitudes and was prompted on a subsequent page to put these values in. I had to use the back button to get to the fields again and then add them. I then got service interrupted errors on the bottom of the page. Experiences have been using the back button is taboo for re-entering data and the web page should provide it’s own back button embedded in the web page.
Well enough for this posting, back to playing with the flight planning
EDITED to add the following.
Can’t play with the flight planning. Unable to add profiles to drop downs which I am betting is causing the service error at the bottom of the page. It’s not even seeing the successful climb profile I did manage to get in.
Can’t add new pilot information…
