Bug#314452: ITP: xfplan -- Xwindows general aviation flight planner

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

This is an X Windows version of fplan (ITP files 311070).

* Package name    : xfplan
  Version         : 0.1
  Upstream Author : Name <somebody@example.org>
* URL             : http://sourceforge.net/projects/fplan/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : Xwindows general aviation flight planner

The input to xfplan is a planfile that can be created with the user's
favorite plain text editor. A self explanatory language is used to
describe the flight; departure and destination airports, intermediate
waypoints, navigation aids, winds aloft, and fuel consumption rates. The
flight plan produced by xfplan includes; wind corrected magnetic
headings, distance, estimated time and fuel consumption for each leg,
latitude and longitude for each checkpoint, and optional VOR fixes. A
graphical preview of the flight is available on systems with X11 Windows
and the XView Toolkit.

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. Also,
the program itself is likely to still contain some bugs and is not
intended to be a substitute for official flight planning information.
