Graph My Flights
Graph My Flights is a self-evaluation tool that allows you to focus on, and rate, different aspects of your flying performance. After rating your flight, the app will plot a graph that will show the performance from your previous 10 flights.
Evaluation is an often forgotten, and yet critical, stage in improving your flying skills. You can practise often, but unless you evaluate your performance, you won’t know how well you are doing and where to focus your efforts.
This handy tool will help you plan the amount of fuel you need for your flight. This is a simple calculator for light aircraft.
We’ve preloaded a few sample aircraft templates you can work from, but also included an option for you to enter the figures for your own aircraft.
