New ATLAS Beta Release (0.8.0.0) Now Available

We’ve been working hard on ATLAS, our all-new Web-based flight planner and aviation information system and it’s now much closer to being ready for prime-time.  And late-nights continue so you’ll see very rapid progress on it now.

Click Login in the upper-right corner and use your FlyQ email/password to login.  Or use Create Account to create an all-new account.

Be sure to click the question mark (?) icon at the top to see the current release notes about what works and what doesn’t.

If you haven’t tried ATLAS yet, you should as it’s a pretty amazing system.  All you need is a PC or Mac with a modern Web browser and you can create/edit/file flight plans, get weather briefings, get detailed airport information, check for cheap fuel, and much more.  And, of course, flight plans and pilot/aircraft profiles are automatically shared between ATLAS and FlyQ EFB and FlyQ Pocket.

To get a sense of how it works, here is a video from before it was released to beta (hence it’s a little outdated but you’ll get the idea). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J25ifATQh6o

Fixes relative to the previous beta (0.7.0.0):

  • FIXED: Cannot file a flight plan
  • FIXED: No Wx briefings
  • FIXED: The Wx status icons for airports with METARs don’t work.
  • FIXED: Unless logged-in, creating a flight plan is handled very badly
  • FIXED: METAR/TAF date display is wrong on some browsers
  • FIXED: Editing a flight plan with lat/long points (rather than named aviation points) fails
  • FIXED: Cannot create a new flight plan with a non-default aircraft
  • FIXED: Lockheed Martin not supported
