FAQ

What is Iduna FLY?

Iduna FLY is a flight preparation tool which allows a complete airplane-specific pre-flight for all supported airplanes. All calculations are based directly on the manufacturer’s POH data.

You can add your specific airplane call sign, weight and moment and all calculations are done based on this input.

As a result you get a complete weight & balance profile; takeoff distances for departure, destination, and alternate; climb, cruise, and fuel data calculation. If you want, you can also create a PDF summary.

The main goal is to keep things simple. Now you can also do IFR route planning and flight plan filing with just a few clicks.

I already have a flight planning tool, why do I need Iduna FLY?

Iduna FLY is a pre-flight preparation tool which is used in addition to your flight planning tool. Optionally, IFR route planning and flight plan filing can also be done with Iduna FLY.

Most flight planning tools allow standard calculations of weight & balance and fuel.

Iduna FLY allows you to define airplane profiles with all airplane-specific extra equipment that influences performance, like de-icing systems, changed takeoff/landing weights, wheel fairings, long range tanks … Based on this it calculates the weight & balance and runways available, with current weather conditions.

Which airplanes are supported?

We plan to support most common airplane types used in General Aviation. Neither Rome nor Iduna FLY was built in a day, but we are working hard to provide as many different types as we can as soon as possible.

We currently support a range of Aquila, Beechcraft, Cessna, Cirrus, Columbia, Diamond Aircraft, Grumman, Piper, Robin, Ruschmeyer and Socata types. You can sign up for the Newsletter to stay up-to-date about new models as they are added.

If your airplane type is missing you can now vote for the new ones we should add.

How much does it cost?

Based on our users’ feedback we have identified two different main types of pilots. The ones that fly a lot of different airplanes types, and the ones that fly the same airplane most of the time.

For the first group we have created a subscription model, which includes all airplanes, the current ones and all we add in the future. The second group can buy just the airplane types they fly with one payment.

Whichever group you belong to, you can test each airplane type for up to four weeks.

Why is my airplane not displayed in an autorouter import?

You can only import airplanes that are supported by Iduna FLY. If your airplane is not yet supported please send us an email. We will add it to the voting list.
