Great news! We are working on setting up our new Scheduling system, Flight Circle. Flight Circle will eventually replace WingsARS, but not quite yet!
We are in the Set up phase, so as soon as you can, please follow the link to set up your new account with Flight Circle.
Before we open up...
Justin sent a few high resolution images of a few of the club aircraft (Thanks Justin). I'm looking for more images to add to each aircraft's details page. Specifically, if you have good photos of the exterior and instrument panels, please either post them here in this forum thread or email them...

The METAR data is cached for one minute so it's pretty current.
What do you think? Do you like it? Should I add other...
This is a 6-minute walkthrough video I made
I think the calculator is looking pretty good now. Here's what it does:
- Popup a choice of local airports to examine

I expanded the calculator so it now calculates KTAS, Density Altitude and Pressure Altitude and added the wind component to calculate a ground speed in knots...even if the IAS is MPH.
This is the current weather at KLXV (Leadville) using the RNAV (GPS)...
I just built a CANPA calculator you can use to calculate the non-precision constant angle descent for non-precision approaches:
It is linked on the bottom of the Flight Planning page.
