Related to #38 but a first and simple step
Add new tab to flight plan window:

  • Average climb rate
  • Average fuel flow
  • Move ToD rule from options to this tab
  • Move TAS to this tab

Save for different aircraft
Detect values automatically
Draw climb phase in elevation profile.

Fuel calculations would be useful for IRL flying. I'd be happy if you could set max fuel amount per aircraft type and the flight plan would display used fuel and fuel remaining. Also there could be a warning if amount of fuel is less than safety limit (45 minutes).

Added aircraft performance facilities including edit dialog, save, lo…
…ad, file history and report.

Performance files (*.lnmperf) can be dragged into the main window to load.
Added main menu "Aircraft" and tab on flight plan dock window for loading and saving of performance files.
Performance and fuel calculation can use an average cruise wind setting. Cruise wind is interpolated for climb and descent.
Now showing fuel remaining in flight plan table.
Fixed issue where some column widths were not saved in flight plan table.
Added generic fuel unit to unit conversion.
Removed now useless speed setting from flight plan dock.
Added setting in options to change text size in performance report.

Added automatic aircraft performance calculation.
Now showing clear error messages if TOC or TOD cannot be calculated.
Removed state of having no performance data. Now a default value with 3/1000 descent and climb rules is default.
Added tooltips to performance edit dialog.

Hi Alex,
I am eager to see a screenshot if possible.
A hand full changes but not everything as clear as a Crystal ball to me.
Thanks
