If it doesn’t already exist (ie I’ve not spotted it!) is it possible to have an auto generated waypoint in the flight plan where the leg crosses an FIR boundary?

When the world is normal I often route to the continent in all manner of different routes and find myself having to create a user waypoint at the boundary so that I can report estimates etc. Of course the problem is that I always accidentally rubber band the leg a little when trying to create a waypoint at the boundary.

Anyway, just an idea... thanks for listening.

When in flight, just touch/press a point on the FIR boundary right next to where your track crosses it to bring up the ‘What’s Here’ pop-up. The estimate to reach it is given top right.

I like that - thank you.

SkyDemon does already include your ETA at FIR entrypoints in your flightplan as is often requested by authorities.
