Just curious if anyone has used Fltplan.com's eAPIS and if it is that much better than doing it with the FAA's website. We only fly Int't maybe 5 trips per year... is it worth the $250?

This or which page's small print?
Is this a new fee? We have been using them all year, I thought for no cost. However, we are done with them. No passenger (or pilot) information security. A child could hack that site and they have no intention of fixing it.

Would you trust all your (and your pax info) with "fltplan.com"....

Eapis and April this year came pretty fast, we used them for the season but are done with fltplan.com now.

Now that eapis is here to stay, there are more vendors offering their services. We needed usability and changeability, and you can't get that from the government site.

We are using arinc now, just tacked in on to our existing flight planning services.
Since when did Arinc/Universal/Baseops etc get any more secure than Fltplan?
Dig deeperand you will find they are all the same. You are paying for convenience not security with all of them. Period!
There is a member of the NBAA that has created a program that you can buy from him directly and it will do everything that you need, and your info will remain secure as it is in YOUR computer and not one belonging to someone else.

We use it... and it works great.

PM Me and I will work on getting you the contact info.
We don't have computers in our floatplanes, we need ultimate flexbility including phone access, and blackberry changes and adds... everyone has their limitations.

I use eapis/customs 5-6 times a week, needs to be easy.
