Does anyone know if there is an problem with File2Fly?

I can access it, and not sure if it is only on my side...

Same here, website not responding.

Hopefully they're fixing the issues with the websites security certificate.

DHA is also going to need some work, as their online booking system used flash player, which was discontinued on Dec 31 2020 #-o

I use Microsoft edge. It comes up with a warning that the site is unsafe. You can click on 'Advanced' and then carry on anyway - the site will come up and operate as usual. I suppose they will update their SSL's some time.

This is a response from a windows platform: (Yes I've tried Firefox).

This is a response from my Mac:

I can't (allegedly) file my flight plan via the Briefing fax machine (011 928 6514) as its U/S.

So what to do now? Telephone I suppose. ATNS - really, get your act together. BE PROFFESSIONAL.

On the mac, click on the "visit the website" next to "If you understand the risk involved, you can .."

the website work, but they need to update something on their security or something.

Thanks guys - I'm well aware I can proceed and take the risks but I don't want to take the risks. Their IT need to do the job of preparing a safe/secure site for us to utilise and in so doing, protect us. I found it laughable that the fax machine (in 2021) isn't serviceable/available. So I asked if I could email them - that service isn't available either.

I suggest they do their darnedest to be professional.

I had endless problems with filing a digital flight plan last week Thursday. I think I had to repeat it 5 or 6 times very very frustrating. I hope you have time to do it telephonically.

File 2 Fly needs to be updated in accordance with modern security protocols.
Its sub par.
I file using Foreflight vastly superior.

I tried to file about 90 minutes ago. My various posts are as relevant today as all those months ago. 🤬🤬🤬

Biffo, how do you check the status (accepted / failed ) once you filed it via ForeFlight?
And how do you get the reference number?

Might be a good alternative…
