updates:leon-will-suggest-sta-time-based-on-gcd-with-average-winds-included

Winds can have much effect on the flight time. Some flights can be around 25% shorter when flying east than flying west.

For example, flying from New York to Amsterdam can take around 8 hours and 45 minutes (at the speed of 400 knots/h), while flying from Amsterdam to New York can take around 9 hours and 30 minutes (at the same speed).

Responding to the expectations of our clients we have implemented average winds into Leon, so now when you add a new flight (either from 'New Flight' or 'Planned Flights' sections) the system suggests 2 STA times (apart from the one based on historical flights):

  • calculated from GCD

and

  • calculated from GCD, average winds included
