Ask the team and community
We are all pilots here at EasyVFR and love to help out a fellow aviator! If there is anything you need our help with, please contact us via the forum or by e-mailing [email protected].
Please share your suggestions, comments and feedback on our new forum.
The forum is structured into three sections:
- the downloads, our announcements and projects we are working on.
- the support section where you can ask questions about implemented features and functionalities.
- the new feature upvoting section where you can influence the order of development and even can bring in new ideas.
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.
