    Folks! The YouTube live stream did not work (it worked this afternoon, just not this evening!). I will be putting up the recorded version on youtube in the next few days.

    my apologies!

    Steve, any issues with the C130s? The five times I went to Little Rock for C130 school we flew low levels up in those parts back in the day. Loved flying down the river canyon in the Herk.

    The Google Earth link exports to a .kml file, which a lot of other flight planning programs can import. That is for the profoundly uncool, non-Foreflight capable Android users, like me.

    Thanks, Tony! You are "profoundly cool" in my book!

    I think there was a mention in the video of developing an app version of the Airfield Guide. I think that would be great, especially if it was a stand-alone, downloadable version that did not need an active internet connection. Leaving out the videos, and maybe photos, should make the file size manageable.

    Of course, there would have to be an Android version.

    Did you try clicking one anyway? They do appear a little grey. Also, make sure there are airports in your filtered list - i.e. by region, etc.

    You will need to have Foreflight installed on that device also.

    Are you sure you selected a "filter" first (like choosing a region)?

    Hello there!

    Eddie, I sent you a PM. Could you please send me a note with the iOS version on your iPad?

    It's a little tricky trying to pick up whether the page is running on an iOS device or not. I've changed that code to try to do a better job. See if you are shown the active links to download to ForeFlight after a page refresh. If not, I can always just leave the links active all the time regardless of platform.

    Thanks,

    Chip

    The user waypoints work. The detailed map layer gives me the error message.

    The user waypoints locked up Foreflight three times. Detailed Map Layer worked.

    Eddie, I had that happen when I tried to do too many at once - like all of them. When I just did a smaller group it worked OK - might be a different issue.

    Yes my Foreflight locked up with importing user waypoints too. I just closed it and reopened it, and it was alright. Great video Steve, thanks. I noticed the user waypoints were a bit much (clutter) when I added them in so I went back and deleted them individually (via more, custom content). Contrary to the tutorial; on my Ipad with Foreflight I can go direct with with the "detailed map layer" and the waypoints are therefore redundant. I think, unless I am mistaken, which happens a lot.
    Anyway good fun stuff for the steam gauge generation to see the magic and incorporate it into flying unknown geographical areas that were previously challenging to avoid busting airspace.
    Steve; this stuff is a good subject for some Wednesday videos. Maybe do Foreflight one week, and do one of the other popular systems tutorials for a week or two after that. I do quite a bit with Foreflight on occasions but I would really enjoy learning some more of these tricks from the gurus.
    Thanks again.

    You are correct about being able to go direct to. I'll need to fix the video, the issue is, in the flight plan you just get coordinates not identifiers, so it can be a little confusing.

    Thanks for posting the video. Adding to our list of places to go. Really like the idea of having something to keep our kids entertained at these unique destinations.
