My first feature request, so be gentle with me. I searched a lot for duplicates and only found one from an ATC perspective.
My feature request/suggestion is a more realistic “Direct To” feature. Currently, we can “Activate Leg” or fly direct to a waypoint choosing whether we want to keep or replace our flight plan.
Choosing “Keep Flight Plan” keeps the remaining flight plan already filed, but deletes the entire back end of the flight plan already flown.
Choosing “Replace Flight Plan” does exactly that. You now have one waypoint on your flight plan and it’s the one you just chose to fly direct to.
Choosing “Activate Leg” starts the airplane on an extended line of that leg. If the chosen waypoint is several hundred nautical miles away and at a different heading than I’m currently flying, the airplane will turn to intercept the extended line of that waypoint instead of that waypoint itself.
I would like to be able to fly from my current position directly to another waypoint and then continue my flight plan.
If this is a duplicate, do your thing and flag it. Otherwise, think about it and if you like it, vote.
