I really love the new possibility to create and flag routes on Simbrief! Right now it’s a good first step, but I think there is a lot more potential to make the lives of “route creators” easier.
Filter all routes for one airport (in- and outbound):
I usually create and update routes for specific airports (e.g. Frankfurt). Right now it should be only for Frankfurt around 500 IFPS validated routes to maintain (in- and outbound combined). It would be great so see all routes for one airport that are available in the database, filtereable by “Eurocontrol, Vatsim, User” as well as editable. I don’t know all citypairs that are available in the database, so it would be difficult to keep them up to date.
Import routes by file:
Keeping all routes up to date with the current interface would take a lot of time. It would be great to have the option to upload a file (e.g. .csv) to update all existing routes (or to create them).
Add prefered runways for airports:
It would be nice to have the option to add prefered departure runways in general and in combination with specific first waypoints. This could help the pilot when flying online and a specific usage of SIDs is common. This could maybe help the pilots to find the correct charts and improves the cockpit preperation.
For example EDDF (order is important):
25C:MARUN, TOBAK, OBOKA:M,F,G
07C:MARUN, TOBAK, OBOKA, SULUS, KOMIB:E,D
18:ANEKI, CINDY, SOBRA, SULUS, ULKIG: S,L
Use a table to display the different routes (and maybe use the headline as search field):
Example here: Screenshot by Lightshot
Offer the user the possibility to “report” IFPS invalid routes, that need to be checked by a “creator” before it’s not displayed anymore. That could also work the other way around to suggest IFPS valid routes, that need to be checked/confirmed.
Maybe this route topic should be displayed as a seperate tab and not as small part of the NOTAM and Weather part.
Looking forward for any further great improvements!
