Calculate refueling stops in a route Messages in this topic - RSS

For long trips, it would be great to specify the following: departure, destination, and range to refuel (time or distance).

Then plan the route to include appropriate fuel stops, considering apt size, fuel price...(?). The result would be a multiple leg trip calculated for us.

For example KAUS (Austin, TX) to KTOP (Topeka, KS) is beyond both my aircraft's range and my bladder range. I usually plan for 2.5 hour or 250nm legs. It's not overly complicated for me to create separate legs, but it would be nice to get the same result with one touch of the "plan' button.
