1 - What is TFL Autopilot?
TFL Autopilot is a server client for The Flight Lounge. It’s primary use is as a flightplan logging and strip system, however newer versions incorporate new features. Technically speaking, TFL Autopilot is a windows based, server client application, with peer to peer communication via a host server.
2 - How to Install TFLA
Simply download the .zip folder from the downloads page on our website. Extract this using the built-in Windows File Explorer, or a third-party application like WinRar, 7-Zip etc. Next, run the installer as an administrator. Follow the installer instructions, and choose the program directory. By default it is C:\Program Files (x86)\TFLA . We recommend you keep it here unless you want to move it to a more convenient place for you. It will then continue installing and will finish under 2 minutes. Simply type “TFL Autopilot” in the Task Bar to open the application. You can also choose to create a shortcut on your desktop, the application to which it should redirect to can be found in your install directory. A video guide is also available on the Autopilot page on our website, www.tflserver.com
3 - Why TFLA?
TFLA was created to simplify and remove the need for excessive spam in Discord chats. It also provides a solution for controllers and pilots not using Discord!
4 - Bugs
Known Bugs will be listed on the TFLA Forum on our website. If you find one, post it on the Forum or DM an Admin in Discord.
5 - Support
You should ask simple questions on the TFLA Forum on our website, for more advanced support, DM an admin or email firstname.lastname@example.org
6 - Communication System in place
The way the app communicates is simple. In Pilot Mode, all of your flightplan data is sent to our server when you submit. It is stored in our temporary database, which is cleared every 24 hours. When in ATC mode, the server sends all the flightplans in the database to you. ATC Requests work the same way.
7 - Data Handling
We do not collect any sensitive data, and all flightplan data is removed after 24 hours. Our website member info is stored externally, by either Wix, Google or Facebook, depending on your login method.
