CANADIAN PILOTING
VERSION 1.0

A Canada Flight Planning Program



Based on "FLTPLAN" by Patrick C. Roe, Lopez, WA, USA
PCSIG939

Adapted by F. Harold Deeks, YZP, London, ON, CANADA
July 18,1988



________________________________________________________________

DEDICATED to all hands-on, seat-of-pants, nitty-gritty private
pilots past and present.

================================================================



NOTICE

This program is meant for Canadian private pilots using "CANADA
FLIGHT SUPPLEMENT" data; and published Provincial data.

To facilitate flight connections between Canada and the United
States, bordering States data from Patrick Roe's program has been
listed as published but edited to include some customs airports
used by private pilots flying between both countries. Such is not
meant to replace Patrick's program when flying in the United
States. As Pilot-in-command you must verify all data listings
contained in both programs. Canadian data for fixed-wing land-
based aircraft was entered from the 5 May 1988 edition of CANADA
FLIGHT SUPPLEMENT; and a 25 nm +/- radius for London local-strips
data was entered from ONTARIO AIRPORTS 85/86 as well. Transport
Canada AERONAUTICAL INFORMATION PUBLICATION (AIP) and Flight
Service Station NOTAMS, AIC, etc. should be taken into account
before making any flights.


DESCRIPTION

The program gives magnetic-variation, course, distance and time
enroute between waypoints listed in a data file, with grand-
totals on screen; which it can print on an Epson control code
printer. The flightplan may list up to sixteen waypoints and use
one estimated airspeed; but does not calculate from winds aloft
data any heading, estimated ground speed, most economic altitude
or fuel consumption which over short distances generally prove
impractical to a VFR flight.

NOTES

* Turning Point without landing strip.

Figures of less than 1 minute are in 10ths of a degree; for
example 26'50''= 26.8; and if 26'only, enter 26.0.

By convention: Cape, Fort, Point, Port, Saint, etc. are shortened
to CP, FT, PT, PT, ST; STRATFOS represents a grass strip south-
west of STRATFOR the Stratford Municipal Airport; WINNIPSA repre-
sents WINNIPEG-St. Andrews airport; and so on, or as you will. If
in doubt check a Waypoint File when prompted by the program.

Similar Waypoint Files can be composed as you may need using your
wordprocessor ASCII format for "Seadrome", "Heliport", etc., or
existing Waypoint Files modified for you special local flights.


OPERATION

1.Enter "printset" to configure printer.

2.Enter "cp" to start program.

3.Enter "1" for Waypoint Menu.

4. Enter "3" for Plan

5.Enter "#" of Waypoint File; if special, enter "File.DAT".

6.Enter take-off airport name; the enter each waypoint name.
When finished enter "done".

7.Enter "Airspeed in knots". (All distances are calculated in
nautical miles).

8.View Waypoint File as described above if necessary andenter
corrections.

9.Proceed as you will.
