# Is there a program to estimate flight time/ is there a way?

DME43 Guest

is there a program that tells you the time it should take you to reach your destination either taking in the weather etc or not, and if not, how can we estimate it?

Hello, if you view the flight plan details, does it not (from memory) give you the estimated duration of each sector?

If not, an FMC will give an ETA...

Plenty of free/pay ware ones available. try the avsim website.

i've searched avsim and i havn't found anything.

as for the FMC, I only have that on one aircraft and I want to know the time it will take to the destination before i start up FSpassengers and the FMC starts working after you've taken off

even though i could have worked that out using the distance, speed, time triangle

Another way is,

FLIGHT TIME in Min. = (60 X DISTANCE in Nm) / GROUNDSPEED

example;

A 47-Nm trip (enroute distance) will take -

60 X 47 = 2820

2820 / 110-Kts. = 25.6-Min.

I have created a nifty spreadsheet that calculates headings, wind correction angle, economy in nautical miles per gal, fuel burn etc. etc.

You can calculate TIME-FUEL-DISTANCE to climb to enroute altitude from a climb chart for the specific airplane if you have one.

I'd be glad to share the spreedsheet but I dont see a way to upload it. Let me know if you'd like it or if there is a way I can upload it here!
