Pre-file via javascript


Recommended Posts

I know you can receive tons of data about flights, atc, boundaries etc through the data feed. But I don't see any information about filing a flight plan via the api. Is that possible? I would like to send my file plan automatically to the server without having to type all the files in.

I use flightplandatabase dot com to generate the plan via their api. So I just need a way to pass that on to VATSIM.

Last night I figured it out though. No need for an api to send the fp to vatsim. Looks like I can just pass the info to the pre-file form on VATSIM via a pop-up window. It just requires me to push the button and it is done. That is much better than having to fill in all the fields manually.

Hi,

We currently do not have a public API to "blindly" submit flight plans. You can (as you mentioned) bring the user to the pre-file window, and have them submit it. 

Hope this helps!
