Pilot assistant can be used in any session using our hosting software. (listed on the front page.)
Flight plans in these sessions can be created using !F in chat but pilot assistant gives you a neat graphical interface. If required it will also look uper a real route for you.
I've made a short video showing how it works on YouTube
