About This File
FS2004/FSX Flight Calculator v1.6.5. FS Flight Calculator will calculate distance and arrival times for both FSX and FS2004. The program has four input components, Local TimeZone, Departing Airport, Destination Airport and the Aircraft to be used for the flight. The program calculates the distance in nautical miles between two FlightSim Airports. It determines the flight length in hours based on the aircraft's speed and then calculates the Arrival time. If the flight time passes midnight the arrival day is incremented by a day. In addition this version takes into account the timezones of both departing and destination airports and calculates the timezone offset between them allowing display of the arrival in local time at the destination airport. The distances and times are based on point to point calculations and do not allow for taxi out, taxi in, start-up times etc. To compensate for this you can input a time period in minutes which is automatically added to the flight time to give a more accurate estimate of arrival times. This version also adds a Flight Summary Window to the main screen, the ability to create multi leg routes and a utility to create a new Aircraft.txt file. Freeware by Dave Westbury.
