Bug#311069: ITP: flyway -- General aviation flight planner

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Stephen Birch <sgbirch@imsmail.org>

* Package name    : flyway
  Version         : 0.4.0

  Description     : General aviation flight planner

Flyway allows the user to find and enter U.S. waypoints (airports,
navaids, and fixes), then it calculates courses, wind corrections, and
travel times. Information about the waypoints is provided (including
frequencies, elevation, fuel availability, and runway descriptions). The
route data can also be used to fill in an editable FAA Flight Plan form,
fetch basic weather information from the internet, and display a very
rough map.

This program is to be used for preliminary flight planning only. It is
not to be used as an official source of navigation information. The
database it uses is not guaranteed to be accurate or current (it was
labeled as current in April 2002). Also, the program itself is likely to
still contain some bugs and is not intended to be a substitute for
official flight planning information.
