Suggestion : add restrictions to waypoint labels

Recommended Posts

I know you are busy with more important things....but I have a suggestion. I have been doing more STARs and the like lately, and I need to be more aware of height restrictions during this phase of the landing. The Flight Plan window gives the restrictions and is a great help. If possible, I think it would be good if you added this information to the labels on the map view as well as the name of the waypoint. But not a big deal if not possible.

I have been having problems getting the vertical profile correct. For a start I am flying the Carenado DO-228 and the vertical part of the auto pilot is a bit of a pain to use. The 3D panel control is practically unusable, so I use the 2D popup. This makes the descent a bit messy and I often have to pause XP when ATC give me a new altitude. The other problem is that ATC barely gets me to the right altitude in time for me to slow down enough to get the flaps out. I am trying various things to get me down a bit earlier, but it struck me that having the height restrictions on the map would be nice. I am guessing that ATC uses the V/S setting in P2A to determine TOD? I currently have this set to 1500fps, so might set that to 1000fps but still descend at 1500 fps. That should get me down a bit earlier and let me slow down a bit.

Anyway - loving the program.
