Feel free to download and test it. Just remember to back up your FSCaptain folder first "just in case".
The Documentation folder contains an updated 1.3.1 User Guide that will explain a bit about the new Dispatch planning options.
The dispatch planner has been practically rewritten to allow for planning of multiple legs before you start, and for much more accurate calculation of ETE and fuel burn based on a more elaborate set of winds aloft data. You can now also specify an altitude for a planned flight other than that in the official MSFS flight plan and it will be accepted for estimation purposes.
I don't know when the public beta will close but it shouldn't be too long. It depends on what problems may be found. As soon as I'm confident it's safe I will end the beta and make it official.
Good luck and I hope you enjoy the new version! Dutch

Great job on the Beta release Dutch. Just installed to test out how the new multi-leg flight planner looks. Also was testing to see if it recalculates fuel for alternates that you choose manually. It does indeed work! The only thing that would be nice in regards to the alternate is that the name of the airport from the original/automatic alternate is always displayed below the box. This should change to the name of the airport you type in. Havent done any flights yet with it, but will report back here if any anomalies are found!
