@epaga Is it possible to implement a “Hold” button to hold over a certain waypoint if required under constraints like:
- only one hold per flight
- max hold time of 1 hour, or 15min lesser than flight time based on fuel remaining; whichever is lower (max 1 hr)
- when holding, flight climbs to FL400 @ fixed Vs of 800 so that chances of interfering with other flights are lower (so this feature will be only for airliners; not for GA)
- Holding ends if max time expired; or user ends the hold. If max time expired, then flight continues on plan, but descends @800 fpm to original cruise altitude. All further waypoint inputs, however should be disabled at this point so that we don’t have planes descending at 10000fpm all of a sudden to be at a certain height by a certain waypoint - thus preventing random crashes/violations/ghosting after hold
We all fly at random times and sometimes things come up just when one is about to land or even start descent. A hold button would be very useful at this point rather than manually mapping out circles.
Just a wish! I don’t know if it can be implemented; but would be awesome to have.
