up to the flow and speed settings.
When using this function for the first time, move the cursor up to SPEED
and set the cruise speed of your aircraft. Move the cursor down to

will be permanently stored for later use.
Next move the cursor down and select the flight plan you want to perform
the calculations for, then move the cursor down again and scroll through
the legs of your chosen Flight Plan.
As you scroll through the flight plan, the seven calculated fields in the
lower part of the Screen will be updated. The four values grouped
together (DIS, BRG, ETE and REQ) are the DIS (Leg Distance), BRG
(Initial Track, True), ETE (Leg Time) and REQ (Fuel required for Leg) for
the leg displayed.
The three values grouped in the center of the screen (FPLN DIS, ETE
and REQ) are the DIS (Total flight plan distance), ETE (Total flight plan
time) and REQ (Total fuel required, no reserve) for the flight plan dis-
played.
