Hello @Juha Holopainen,

Thank you for the great plugin!
Well, for using TopSky in Moscow FIR after the 3rd of December we need one minor addition.

With New airspace structure we are going to use QNH and feet below TL, but still using separation minimums in kilometers.

Is it possible to make QNH/feet altitudes with metric distances and speeds in km/h, which can be switched to knots in one click.


Thank you!

Good grief, why couldn't they just switch to imperial units for distances and speeds as well...😖

It's possible to do some changes in a future version, but until then you're probably best off just using the imperial units and converting to kilometers in your head.

Hello @Juha Holopainen,

We've found the setting which can display AFL in feet when Metric system is chosen. (Label_AFL_ForceNautical=1)

That's really great! Well, could you add the same setting for CFL and XFL (for example, Label_СFL_ForceNautical and Label_XFL_ForceNautical)? We are currently using default CFL instead of Topsky's because if we set Label_AFL_ForceNautical it changes AFL only, but not CFL.

It will solve all our problems in Moscow FIR with altitude in feet and speeds and distances in km/h and km.

Thank you for the great plugin!

The intended use for that setting is to force the AFL value to be shown in imperial units when there are some flights using metric and others imperial units, so the displayed units for AFL would be the same for all flights. The next version of the plugin will introduce a units setting menu, allowing to select metric or imperial units separately for altitude, speed and distance, of course with settings to set the initial selections for those.
