Hey. This is an IFC forum feature request, not a request for Infinite Flight.
I’ve found that when explaining concepts on the forum like groundspeed, conversions to feet/NM, weight and balance calculations, and even simple aviation rules of thumb which require mathematics, it becomes a little limited by the formatting.
I know there are maths plugins for Discourse, like Discourse Math Editor which use LaTeX, or Discourse Math Plugin which uses MathJax, and I feel that implementing something like that on the forum would make it just a little easier for reading concepts like:
Pivotal Altitude = (Groundspeed)^2 / 11.3
which could read as:
if we had the maths formula plugin.
Fun fact: the above formula is what you use to calculate your altitude for 8s-on-pylons, which is a commercial pilot checkride maneuver.
Let me know if this is possible! It would make tutorials easier too. What do you think?
Have a great day :)
