Sometimes we go to a lot of effort to properly prototype a feature, so we can fully understand what it looks like and feels like to work with.

We are aware that a lot of people do not use, or know about, the Flight Details tab where warnings about penetrations into airspace are shown when planning. We came up with the idea of colour-coding the magenta line when it passes through airspace, to make it obvious. In this screenshot we've coloured it blue when the route goes through controlled airspace, orange when it goes through restricted or dangerous airspace and grey when inside sporting areas.

This is only a prototype and isn't scheduled for inclusion in SkyDemon. What do you think? Useful, or pointless? Do you use the Flight Details tab?
