I wrote a simple flight planner for the HP 95/100/200 palmtop
many years ago. It comes in VERY handy. I use it all the time.
I was considering releasing it commercially at one point.
(If anyone wants a copy, let me know and I'll see if I can
dig it up.)

I would recommend the Compaq Ipaq too. It's very easy to see
in a daylit cockpit and a lot of other aviation software has been
written with it in mind.
