(41) Flight Manual-Data
The ABSTRACT from The Use of a Computer to Obtain Flight Manual Data, Chang Whan (MAJ-RoK-AF), Naval Postgraduate School, DEC 1986.

ABSTRACT
The one thing among many that must be prepared for every flight is the making of a flight plan. Pilots must use charts or graphs from the flight manual to compute the fuel flow that is essential to a flight plan. Since this requires many steps of interpolation to compute the specific conditions that cannot be read directly from flight manual, it is time consuming and increases the probability of making a mistake. This problem obstructs the execution of various mission changes and continuous sorties.
A computer program for personal computer or hand-held calculator is developed to compute the desired fuel flow by modifying the equations for an 'IDEAL' airplane.


emphasis mine; HP-41 listing (pg-85): aviation-centric read!

BEST!
