A nice idea, here my actual settings plus the information this is for mainly flying in the plains, no mountains, for quite some flight hours on records and at least three digits annual flight hours. I guess that information has to be tied to the numbers for reference.



But, I admit to no longer use that feature after some trying. Skydemon philosophy of safety is not mine, sorry, neither in showing the flight conditions TAF/METAR nor for the flyable simulations. I welcome that low time pilots are well protected by it, but feel the margins in Skydemon are trending too far towards the contemporary fully comprehensive cover mentality. Yes, if Skydemon shows it is flyable, with very high probability it is, but if it does not, odds are still high it is absolutely fine weather for non-lowtimer. Or a little sarcastic - if we would have be evolutionized by such high safety margins, we might still be bob up and down as single cell organisms in primeval ocean.

Just to be clear on this - I am perfectly fine with it, as long as it is transparently communicated and the solution thought as a low-timer VFR day navigation software. And yes, I will continue using it for that purpose.
