Flight planning is an essential part for both domestic and international flights. Flight planning becomes crucial to control the schedule and costs as factors like reliable ETEs and fuel burn estimates are taken into consideration for flight planning. Optimal and fast are the two words that matter the most when flight planning is done. To achieve this a variety of aspects, like aircraft performance data, global weather forecasts, routing restrictions, navigational charges, and more, needs to be considered to ensure safety and compliance.

The main points to consider for flight planning are:
Departure and Destination Information
Aviation Weather Information
- Departure and Arrival place and time. For international flight planning, the time difference between the departure and arrival city must be considered.
- Destination airport and airport diagrams. A thorough study of the airport diagrams and scheme including operating areas, runways, taxiways, ramp, etc.
- Ground handling services at a destination airport (ground transportation, catering, etc.), fuel availability.
- Aircraft type. Be it Civil, private, commercial, or military all aircraft types have their own technical characteristics and capacities. Depending on them, some aircraft can raise up high enough to fly over the mountains. Others can fly reasonable distances without refueling.
- Terrains and temporary flight restrictions. You might need to vector around the mountains or closed airspace areas. Thus, your flight route will become longer.
- VFR or IFR rules are used for your flight. VFR means the pilot operates the aircraft based on his visual perception of weather conditions. If visibility is poor, IFR is used. IFR means the pilot doesn’t control the flight fully on his own. For international flight planning, you need to consider that both VFR can be restricted in some countries depending on the time of the day or weather.
- Airspeed and fuel consumption. Small aircraft may need to make an extra stop for refueling on the way to a destination place.
Weather conditions are one of the most important aspects to consider because flight planning and weather are linked closely. Unfavorable weather conditions might lead to a revision of the flight plan. Whether the destination airport has been closed or there is a strong wind on your way, the route needs to be changed immediately. Getting timely weather briefs will let the pilot control the flight and make important decisions promptly.
