Q: What is SunFlight?
A: SunFlight is an app that shows you the path of the sun for your flight. You can use it for whatever purpose you want, however most people use this app to help plan where to sit on their flight, based on the location of the sun.
If you like this app, then please consider donating $5.
Q: When will the sun will rise and set on my flight?
SunFlight also tells you when the sunrise and sunset will be on your flight, so you can plan your nap and sleep times. The results summary will indicate when the sunset or sunrise will occur for each leg of your journey.
Q: I have a suggestion, where can I send it?
A: You can either contact me (see below for details) or reply on the Flyer Talk Forum post here
Q: Does SunFlight calculate the exact flight path?
A: SunFlight uses the geodesic (shortest path) between two points, which in most cases will simulate the approximate flight path.
Q: How can I contact the creator of this site?
A: Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Does it work on iPad / iPhone?
A: Yes it should work with the latest iOS version for both iPad and iPhones.
Q: Where do you get your data from?
A: SunFlight gets its routing data from OAG.
Q: Route XYZ doesn't work, can you help?
A: Sure, email me the flight code and number and the date, and explain what's wrong with the result.
Q: What feature/bugs/etc you planning on releasing next?
A: Here's my TODO list:
- Adjust the sun calculations based on daylight savings
- Allow dropdown for carrier selection rather than entering the airline code
- Allow users to enter their own flight data (origin, destination, duration of flight, departure time)]
Q: Where can I see a list of recent searches?
A: You can see a list of recent searches here.
