Easily find distance between airports

By Xavi J’s request, I’ve just implemented a new improvement on the Flight Distance Calculations (under Pilot Tools)

Xavi requested to get contextual help in finding the airport he wanted to calculate the distance to.

What this means is that you can now start typing the name of the airport, and you’ll immediately get a list of airports whose names match what you’re typing.
Let’s se an example:

Say you want to calculate the distance from Miami INTL (KMIA) to Fort Lauderdale Executive but you don’t remember its ICAO identifier.
You then go to Pilot Tools, then Distance, Time & Course.

You now write KMIA in the From field. You’ll see we’ve added a new filed: Search for. Start typing “Fort Lauderdale” and you’ll see how you get a number of suggestions. Like this:

Find AirportAs you can see, just after typing a couple of letters, you get a list of airports matching your request.
Just click on the right airport, and it will be added on the to field.

Because you can request flying distance to more than just one airport, you can now start typing the name of another airport and add it to the destination field.
When you’re done adding destination airports, you just click on the submit button and you’ll get the distance, course and flying time to all the requested fields.

Hope you like it!
