Flight Plan Distance and ETE Columns

Post by Captain K-Man » Wed Jul 17, 2019 5:10 pm

Would it be a huge hassle to put in a total distance and/or ETE column on the Flight Plan page? This would make it infinitely easier for pilots to find flights that fit into the time limit they have for the day by allowing them to short routes by distance or time required to fly it.

What is this ETE value you speak of?

We could add distance, just worry about adding too many columns to that screen.

Estimated Time Enroute. Basically, the total flight time from gate to gate. Programs like ProjectFLY are very accurate at giving this data but at the very least adding a total distance for the route to the flight planning page would help pilots selected destinations they can get to if they are short on real world time.
