Hello,
I have question concerning the data on the SkyDemon plate (all our data in one place). I like the idea of having all information in one place, but I miss something here. The QFU (magnetic runway direction) is missing. On German DFS VACs, the QFU will be depicted on the aerodrome chart. One could ask, why is this important? I tend to set up my G1000 for departure, arrival and as well for pattern flying, with the exact QFU, to obtain the proper guidance. This is very helpful, in many regards and quick access to that number by looking it up on SkyDemon plate would be highly appreciated. Shouldn’t be too much of an effort? Tim, could you do that for us?
Cheers, Frank

It would be very little effort, but it's not something we would add to all such plates lightly. Would you like me to move this to the Suggestions forum so we can see if anyone else is interested? To my knowledge we haven't had much demand for this figure over the years.

I don't see why not. In a section with runway information... runway "designator", magnetic heading, TORA, TODA, LDA...

Makes sense to me!
