    mappoint Flight planning

    I am trying to determine if mappoint can be used as a flight planner.
    Some criteria is to calculate the distance between waypoints.
    User ability to add waypoints between two other waypoints.

    As you can see I am new to mappoint. I am very pleased at the easy of using it for ground travel but what about air travel. I don't want the route to follow the street, but a direct route between waypoints.

    Any ideas

    I think you could.. you'd be working with lat/lon's exclusively. Do you know of some good flight planner software? You would essentially have to re-create all the logic including elevation, tower location, restricted airspace, weather/wind factors etc. all in your own code.
