    I should start by saying you don't even need a pen to write down how much I know about AI flight plans. Ideally, I'd like it to stay that way, which is why I want a nice little pointy-clicky tool to build them... ;)

    Now, what I'm trying to do should be quite simple (in my head anyway!)... and that is, create a flight plan for two aircraft to do VFR touch and gos at my new FSX airport, on weekends only. Each plane will do several sessions, of between 1 and 2 hours (exact timings are not important), with a spell on the ground in between.

    After much faffing around and head scratching/banging on wall, I've arrived at the screenshot, which describes what I want for one aircraft. It won't let me save it though, complaining that the start and destination airports are the same! :confused: Which is surely the point for T&G? :banghead:

    Help! :D

    Are there any tutorials that walk you through building simple flightplans? The UI is very dense and not particularly intuitive if you don't already know what you're doing... ;)

    The flight pan is perfectly valid. It looks like you've found a bug in AIFP. I'll fix it as soon as possible.

    Thanks for reporting it.

    Re tutorials, the TTools user manual is the best available of those I know about.

    Tim, please try Version 1.38. It was a minor problem whereby if you specified both TNG operation and arrival time (a perfectly normal situaton, I might add), the system would object.

    Sorry for the inconvenence,
    Don
