Would it be possible to get a warning when you fly at the wrong FL according the SemiCircular Rule?
Also a notification of the several transition altitudes by country would be welcome during the flightplanning.

Also could we consider adding this as a recommendation in the planning phase too?  i.e. I put a route in from Goodwood to Rochester and the default height is adjusted to reflect the correct altitude for the rule?  I'm a low level flyer (don't get as high as FL) but I seem to remember my CFI recommending to follow the Semi-circular rule at whatever height....

If adding this sort of feature, finding some way to automatically change the altitude when inverting the route would also be good - but do you go up (into CAS) or down (into a danger area)?

How could you ever do that with all these differences in Transition Altitude ???? Predicting this would be near to wizardry.

Are you suggesting to let Skydemon listen to ATC by voice recognition? Interesting.

I understand that there is a move afoot in Europe to change the Transition Altitude to 18,000 feet. I am not sure when this is likely to happen, if at all, but if it does happen, then the Semi-Circular rule will not apply to most of us!

I would appreciate a warning in the "flight details" section during the planning stages. I would not be in favor of SD taking control and actively changing the altitude of a leg.

SD doesn't take control anyway, but at my opinion it would be helpful to receive a warning in flight when you fly "Off Altidude" according to the Semi Circulair Rules. At my opinion it increases the safety for you and other pilots and especially when you don't have an Auto Pilot....

SkyDemon has no idea what altitude you're flying at relative to standard pressure setting, so I don't think this feature would even be possible.
