Note: This Flight Plans must not be used in real flights, because the plans produced by this App are not accurate, because the earth is not flat but a globe.
This App is an answer to the Flat Earth Challenge - 9 months later Flat Earth Airlines is still grounded from the pilot Wolfie6020 to Flat Earthers, to produce a Flight Plan based on the Flat Earth model, so it can be compared to real Flight Plans. Since after 9 months no Flat Earther was able or willing to provide such a Flight Plan, I decided to create this App. Just for fun.
To create a Flight Plan, enter values into the fields above or click one of the blue buttons for the corresponding Airport. As soon as 2 locations are entered, the Flight Plan will be computed and displayed here. A change in any Field immediately updates the Flight Plan and the Paths on the Flat Earth Map and the Globe Earth Map.
To create Flight Plans for succeeding Airports you can simply press any blue Airport button for the next destination. The current destination Dest becomes the new origin Orig and the choosen Airport becomes the new destinantion Dest.
See Abbreviations for a description of the fields.
Note, that the headings, as calculated with the flat earth model, applied on the real world (the globe) would lead to complete wrong flight paths, especially on the southern hemisphere. So not only do the distances not match between flat earth and globe, but also the navigation (headings) can not be applied to get to the target.
