This option sends a SARTIME only notification to NAIPS, rather than a full flight plan. Use this option when your VFR flight is operated entirely outside of controlled airspace.

The details sent are not as numerous, so there’s less potential for error messages from NAIPS.

Flight Plan/Pilot details

This information, which includes the pilot’s NAIPS details must be entered to submit a SARTIME. These are then saved for future use.
Any time you amend a setting on this page, the change will propagate back to either your flight plan, or your aircraft profile.


A SARTIME can be entered for departure/arrival at a particular point in a VFR flight plan.

SARTIMEs are in UTC, and entered using the ‘tumbler’ pop-up. You can switch between UTC and device Local Time (LT) by tapping the button in the top-right corner of the pop-up.


The Submit button sends the plan to AirServices. If a test SARTIME is only required, set NOSEND to ON before tapping Submit. When NOSEND is set to ON, a flight plan is still sent to Airservices, however the word NOSEND is substituted for your callsign.

The NAIPS return of the SARTIME submission appears in the window below the Send icon.

At the top of the screen, Not Filed will update to Filed OK when the submission works correctly. If an error message is received, the status File Failed will display. This will only be cleared by a successful submission.
