Aircraft characteristics


#1

On the aircraft selection screen, it would be very useful if the devs could display the plane’s characteristics (V1, VR, Vapp etc.).

Of course, these can be found on google, but it would save time whenever you try a new plane.


#2

Yes, it would be helpful.
But every aircraft has different V speeds for each weight, so it’s maybe difficult to do…


#3

That’s a good point @Laurens, but what if they put the stats on for the default weight, and the pilot could ball park the numbers based on where they are on the scale in comparison? That might work if they are patient enough to do the math the right way.


#4

Maybe you could set the desired weight while in the selection page and watch the phone calculate the speeds versus sitting on the tarmac in the menu page.

Long live the DC-9!
