Just take a rough guess, i usually fly from ORD-MCO and that's about two hours, measure that distance, and then measure your planned distance to get a ball park estimate.

Man, I hate ORD. It's impossible to get a take off clearance. I tried to make a flight from ORD to DTW, I waited for 30 minutes, first in line for take off, and I couldn't get the clearance. Planes just kept coming in. Twisted Evil

In Flight Planner you have to click on 'Find Route' and then on 'NavLog...'

You can get anywhere in the eastern and central US from anywhere else in the east and central in about 2 hours or much less (example PIT to BOs = 1 1/2 hrs, PIT to FLL = 2 hrs, etc)

West coast from east coast add a couple hours. If you allot about 2 hours flight time and you are in the east coast you should be good.
