Flight Planning Features

Here are some of the great tools built into RocketRoute that give you the confidence, flexibility and convenience to fly anywhere in the world at a moments notice.

AutoRouter

AutoRoute for the Best Route and Valid Flight Plans

AutoRoute is for IFR flying and can save hours in flight planning from first principles. Routes generated for Europe are automatically validated with Eurocontrol. Simply enter ADEP, ADES, Preferred Flight Level, Min/Max Flight Levels together with your Aircraft Performance Profile, click AutoRoute.

AutoRoute has a sophisticated routing engine built for the airways. Based on the inputs, it performs a series of calculations to generate a route. It then validates the route with Eurocontrol and adjusts the route for corrected responses. Preparing a route typically takes between 5-25 seconds to complete. AutoRoute cannot guarantee a route every time due to the complexity of the European airspace, however, we are achieving over 95% routing success rates.
