“Convenient to work with, good integrated functions such as GAR Report, manage, delay and bring forward functions and so on.
Negative side: Autorouter unreliable as occasionally no routes at all, sometimes routes unusable and unpractical, system in itself unstable and not fully reliable. Rocketroute still not usable for professional applications.”
“I appreciate the easy way to enter flight plans, for the rest the integration of weather jeppesen and other are better in flight applications as Fore Flight , Garmin Pilot i.e., tough those are missing flight planning for now.”
“I first used RocketRoute a couple of years ago prior to and during an IFR flight to Elvington, Glasgow and Caernarfon when my Brother and I took our Father away for his 70th Birthday.
I enjoyed using RocketRoute recently for a single engine flight to the Scilly Isles and Newquay, however, I had trouble getting the return IRF flight plan accepted and had to fly back without a flight plan!
For private, occasional users an auto-route function needs to be enabled within RocketRoute.
“Reliable flight planning;
Confirmation of filing;
Facility to advance or retard plan via iPhone / iPad app;
Facility to close flight plan by telephone if no ATC available (only applicable outside UK, of course);
Responsive and reliable customer support.”
“High price increase.
Reasonable product design but poor app design, far from industry standard.
Piston plan does not work for new customers who charter different aircrafts (a company who does not know their customers will fail sooner or later...).
I have written several mails about this. No reaction from management.
As a FI I cannot recommend this product anymore to my students.
Will check out and propagate alternatives.
All together: Medium quality product. Terrible sales.”
