Fantastic Flight Planning Software
This incredible app just got even better with the addition of the Cost Per Hour function. Once you input your aircraft cost per hour you can then calculate the cost of each trip with wind taken into consideration. Now when the boss asks how much will it cost to go from A to B, I can give him an accurate estimate of how long it will take and how much it will cost for each LR of the trip. This is the BEST flight planning software for the price available today. I have used it since its earliest days on a PALM. Additionally the support is second to none. If you ever have a suggestion or comment, your email is returned immediately. A long time ago I suggested Fuel and Flight Time bias options to account for takeoffs, climbs, descents, and landings in order to more accurately compute actual flight times and more importantly fuel burns. I have used this software for everything from small experimental aircraft to large business jets. The accuracy is incredible especially when using the fuel bias.
Can't tell you how many times the boss has asked me "how long would it take us to go from a to b"... Within seconds I have an answer. I typically leave the average wind stored for the current season and it is a great WAG. If I need more accurate flight times and fuel burns I average the winds aloft at departure and destination and insert those.
Try it. You will love it.
Very quick & easy to use. As a flight instructor I can quickly verify a students flight plan calculations. Using the satellite map view we can discuss ground reference points and actually see what they look like from the air.
