- Existing EasyVFR 3 users and looking to add EasyVFR 4 to your license:
If you have a paid EasyVFR 3 license bought via the PocketFMS shop, we have already added EasyVFR 4 to that license. You can activate EasyVFR 4 using the same credentials as you have for EasyVFR 3, namely your email address and the matching Registration Number.
You can recover your Registration Number by filling in the email address of your EasyVFR-account here.
-> Optional for EasyVFR 3 users: To get access to the new forum and my-account area, you can create an EasyVFR 4 account at https://easyvfr4.aero/public-beta. Please use the same email address you have your EasyVFR 3 license on.
- Already an EasyVFR 4 account:
You can activate your EasyVFR 4 app with the same credentials as you have created for the EasyVFR 4 website. In case you need to reset your password go to lost password.

Compatibility with EasyVFR 3
EasyVFR 3 and EasyVFR 4 are two separate apps. If you have an EasyVFR license which you purchased via PocketFMS.com, you can use both apps simultaneously.
In theory, nothing even stops you from using both EasyVFR 3 and EasyVFR 4 on the same device. Flight plans can be shared and are compatible with both versions. However, if problems do arise, please notify us by submitting a bug report on the forum.
