Hello Aviators!

We're excited to announce the beta release of version 4.2.4 for EasyVFR 4, featuring a new route building enhancement, along with several improvements and fixes to enrich your route planning experience.


Tap to Append to Route

We've enhanced the route editing mode in EasyVFR 4 to make creating new routes quicker and more intuitive. Now, when you initiate a route by either selecting 'Depart' or 'Direct-To' from a location, the next Aerodata object you tap will automatically be appended to the end of your route. Once you're satisfied, simply press the green "Confirm Changes" text on the route card to revert to standard map usage mode. Note that this "Tap to Append" feature is active only when building a new route and before it’s confirmed. Any subsequent edits, such as rubberbanding, inserting, or other manipulative actions, will deactivate "Tap to Append", enabling normal use of the info sheet when tapping an object.

For a complete overview of all enhancements in this beta track, revisit our previous post: 4.2.1 (1MAY2024)


Ready to Update?

If you're ready to try the latest version, find the beta installation files and links below. We are preparing to release this version to production as version 4.3.0. Expect a detailed newsletter and updated documentation soon to keep you well-informed.

We deeply value your feedback, which drives our continuous improvement. Please continue to share your experiences with us.

Happy flying and blue skies!
