45. Open Flight Plan from SimBrief

This function opens a dialog window where SimBrief flight plans can be imported directly into Little Navmap. SID, STAR and the respective transitions as well as the cruise altitude are downloaded. Note that approach procedures, cruise speed and fuel parameters are ignored by Little Navmap which relies on aircraft performance files for fuel and speed.
