Limit of 10 flight plans.

Hi Michal,

Not always the first ten flight plans are the best to fly (i.e. KDEN-KLAX).
It could be better to have the chance to choose between all of plans present in database.
In the worst case, there could be maybe 20 or 30 items (2-3 pages).

Happy landings

when i designed the limit of 10 flight plans I really did not see the value of having 30 results for one pair of airports. I wanted to motivate people to improve existing flight plans and not just add more.

What do you think?

hi Michal,

I agree with your winning policy; quality vs quantity is a good target.

To let this work open, contributors have to have the possibility to analize all of the routes
between two airports.

I have seen that the first flight plans in the list of ten are the most used ones (3 or four stars) but, like I said, not
always these are the better ones.

As a transition phase, to the first mouse click for the first ten can be added further clicks until the end
of routes list (two for 20, three for 30 ....).

This could mean a need for a larger bandwidth and longer seek time for database.

It is up to you the better way, I am not aware of all your management problematics.

I appreciate so much your vRoute that I use for every flight planning and management.

Happy Landings

My other goal was to make it difficult to get the entire database by making a general query. I was robbed like that once and did not want to allow that technique again.

as I said, I do not know your management issues.
So, your choices are fine for me, whatever it is.
I use your vroute very much and it is very fine as it is now.

Happy landings
