Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

  • <lat> - Latitude, decimal degrees
  • <lon> - Longitude, decimal degrees
  • <alt> - Altitude above mean sea level, feet
  • <crossat> - Crossing altitude, feet
  • <ktas> - Knots true air speed
  • <on-ground> - True if on ground, if in air or in a tunnel set to false
  • <gear-down> - True for gear down, false for gear up
  • <flaps-down> - True for flaps down, false for flaps up
