About the History of Advanced International Flight Planning
Advanced international flight planning has evolved significantly over the years to become a sophisticated and highly efficient process. In the early days of aviation, flight planning was rudimentary, primarily relying on paper maps and manual calculations. Pilots and navigators used basic tools and landmarks to plot routes for their flights. As aviation technology advanced, aeronautical charts and maps became more widely available, providing essential information about airways, airfields, and terrain. This improved navigation and flight planning. Perhaps the biggest boom in AIFP came with the growth of international travel. With the growth of international air travel, the need for comprehensive flight planning services increased. Airlines and aviation authorities started developing specialized departments and systems for flight planning, often involving manual calculations and consultations with meteorologists and air traffic controllers.
