 If that plane leaves the ground and you’re not with him, you’ll regret it — maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.

VFR flight plan navigation log FAA flight plan form

I hope you like my VFR Flight Planner. I created the original versions of these flight planning forms in 2007, not long after earning my private pilot’s license, because I was unable to find a cross-crountry flight planning form that satisfied me. Most of the alternatives made poor use of space and lacked key features, while others were needlessly elaborate.

I kept my forms as simple as possible, but I put considerable thought into column placement and spacing. I’m a tech geek. So I appreciate that a lot of pilots are using electronic flight planning methods these days, but I still prefer to plan flights with a pencil and paper.
