Hope this is easy.

Can you add "Arrival Altitude at safety Macready" to the available infoboxes?

This already appears on screen 1.3 as TskArrMc0 but it would be useful to have it available in a navbox on final glide; that way it would be possible to see how much additional safety margin could be available from reducing speed.

[THIS HAS BEEN CHANGED INTO ARRIVAL ALTITUDES AT MC0, both for next and task, so there will be 2 more infoboxes in 1.22]

Slight correction. At the moment the transition altitude varies throughout the UK. near us it is 6000ft. There has been a consultation to standardise at 18,000 ft for UK and Europe.

Apologies- missed it.

And I realise having just posted that the TNP file format request should be somewhere else.

Flight level is already offered as a infobox. You mean QNE altitude?
kestrel19 Posted - 25/05/2012 : 10:08:23
1. Flight level (ie: altitude corrected to a 1013 mB pressure setting) as used for airspace above 5000 feet (where pressure is available). Should be a trivial calculation.

2. Support for TNP format airspace files (more widely supported, and arguably more logical than OpenAir.

to see how fast one its going a 60 minute average speed info would be great for cruise or aux info box. greetings martin

There is a problem with this infobox, concerning multitargets.
To make it easy, it would only show the ReqA relative to T>, and would make it confusing while looking at another multitarget.
To make it complicated, we should need Multitarget ReqA, T>ReqA etc.
I am lowering this priority for when I have more time.

RAlt = Required Altitude. This is the number you compare to the altimeter (assuming corroct baro is in altimeter). "Height" refers to "above ground elevation" while "Altitude" refers to "above sea level". This is the ICAO phrasology used by airlines around the world.

height required o.k. but abbrev. better H.req
Coolwind Posted - 12/01/2012 : 15:17:15
Or Height Required, ReqH ?
ernst-dieter Posted - 12/01/2012 : 14:49:22
a) Height Glide Path


b) Glide Path Height ?
Coolwind Posted - 12/01/2012 : 14:26:15
Oh yes, me too I need it.

What should be the name of this infobox?
ernst-dieter Posted - 12/01/2012 : 13:29:52
I mean the absolute number above grund (may be above MSL, here ground is near zero :-)

I am at 1232m and LK shows 478m below glide path i.e. so I have to rise at least to 1710m.
And I am interessted in this number (1710m) because I look at my altimeter from time to time during thermaling which has big numbers and is easy to watch.

A convenience infobox-value :-)
Coolwind Posted - 12/01/2012 : 12:07:09
But that's the Altitude Difference on the overlay, Ernst!
Or do you mean the absolute number relative to ground?
ernst-dieter Posted - 12/01/2012 : 08:31:52
Only for lazyness

An infoboxvalue for:

Height I have to thermal/rise to to be above glide path
Coolwind Posted - 11/01/2012 : 15:57:11
It is like the Zander thermal centering helper.You can disable it.
It is called Orbiter, in LK.
