The AOPA flight planner has already been a go-to tool for many pilots who are members of the AOPA for quite a while but today the AOPA announced some new flight planner updates that they hope will make the tool, powered by Jeppesen, even better.

The new system includes updates on fuel planning, including a new predictive fuel-warning system which can help you plan out your route including fuel stops all along the way with climbing, descending, and winds aloft factored into the equation.
The new system also includes multiple ways to send the nav-log out including email, ForeFlight, and WingX Pro7. AOPA has released a news statement along with a video showing how to use the new version of the AOPA Flight Planner.
