Hi Alex,

Would it be possible to add a setting where you can specify a default altitude used when creating a flight plan from the route description? Seems the current default is 10,000ft or 11,000ft depending on east/west direction (IFR).

Thanks!

Steve

You should find the altitude window in the upper left corner and should be able to change it at will in 500 ft increments.  See the highlighted value with blue background in this image:

Thanks. I'm aware the altitude can be manually changed.

When I'm looking at different flight options I do quick dept / dest route descriptions for a number of options and each time I have to manually change the altitude back to the same altitude to get the correct flight info I'm after.

LNM simply remembers what was last set by the user or from the last loaded flight plan.

I'm not sure when I should set a possible default value (maybe even one stored in the aircraft perf? Thinking about this already).
When the user presses new plan? When the IFR/VFR box is changed? 🤔

Will think about it but no promises
