              Nice. Does the Condor flight create an IGC file,  for later viewing ?

                It does. The procedure is to click on “Analyze Flight” when you finish. At the bottom you should see “Save IGC file”.

                  That’s super.   The altitude profile might be really interesting to watch later, by the pilot.
