Can Sim Avionics include a fuel / distance calculator ?

I have seen similar programs (FS9 PMDG comes to mind) where you can enter the departure/arrival/alternate airport and the distance is calculated. Then you can input the required reserve fuel. The software will then indicate the volume of fuel that needs to be loaded.

I'm aware that this is can be done using maths taking wind into consideration, but a small program would simplify and speed up the calculation.

I thought this would be handy tool to add to the dispatch console.

Thanks, WilloW Idea

Would be nice if everything is in SA-dispatch console.
