Stopover Flight Plan
On this flight, after you have landed at Moody AFB, your flight plan is closed out. To fly
elsewhere after getting gas or a Moody Burger, you would have to file another flight plan. A
Stopover Flight Plan enables you to avoid re-filing by listing subsequent legs of your flight on
the original flight plan.
A Stopover Flight Plan builds upon your previous leg IFR Flight Plan, by insertion of the
appropriate second leg data. The top of your flight plan remains the same; however, changes
will occur in your ROUTE OF FLIGHT section.
Let us say we plan for a one-hour stopover at Moody. The route is: VAD direct PZD, V159 to
EUF, V241 to CEW, direct to NPA213014.
Entries for type flight plan, TAS, point of departure and altitude follow previous procedures.
Proposed departure time must be calculated. Remember, our proposed T/O time must be
calculated. Recalculate departure time at Moody using ETD and time enroute. Our T/O from
NPA was 1500Z. We planned 1+06 enroute (the 1 + 06 refers to our flight time from T/O to the
IAF at Moody AFB). However, we did not land 1 + 06 after T/O because we used some time in
the approach. Because approaches differ in length, for planning purposes we will consider all
approaches to consume 20 minutes.
