In the reports preview I thought about exchanging the ground speed column for a true speed column. What do you think?

Please, comment or just vote. Thank you!

Makes a lot of sense. Similarly, you may want to change the way the "altitude" field is calculated. I believe it should be the max altitude as opposed to the average (?).
Justification:
If these parameters are used to select a flight for further analysis, we will typically pick the flight based upon the cruise altitude (closer to max altitude than to average) and the cruise speed.
It would also be great if the parameters selected by default when displaying a report were altitude and TAS. As it is now (EGT) it is one of the less significant parameters.
Thank you Kai
