Fligh Plan Leg

This screen displays all the calculations of the segment. The magnetic course and the true course are obtained by applying the magnetic variation. The magnetic heading is obtained by applying the wind drift to the magnetic course. The "Ground Speed" GS is obtained from the TAS applying the wind correction.

The desired altitude is what we have put in the tab "data." If the previous point was very close and we had not had time to ascend to that altitude, the "altitude reached" indicates the altitude that we would have at that point applying the aircraft climb rate in the table.

We also have the pressure altitude and density altitude for the segment, calculations based on current QNH and temperature. These data is used in the performance tables of the aircraft.

We also have leg consumption and accumulative consumption. If during the leg there was a climb, because the altitude of this point is greater than the previous one, it would appear that consumption during climb and the time we took to climb, and the distance from the point before at which we have completed the climb "Top Of Climb."
