Thanks, John. Unfortunately SCAP would be not suitable for advanced flightplanning purposes due to long response times. Furthermore it isn’t available for most business jets and turboprops.
What I want to initiate is increased awarness by business jet manufacturers about the performance data requirements of modern flight planning systems. Planning isn’t done anymore by looking up values in tables or graphs in the flight manual. Modern flightplanning systems do a multi-dimensional cost optimization and need a continuous speed range over all altidudes, isa deviations and gross weights.
We are frequently faced with data sets that end at isa+20 or only go down to 10000ft. And even worse, some data sets are scarily inconsistent when viewed in a graphical way, which becomes possible with our tools.
