This is referencing the current version of the flight simulator (FSX / P3d for those familiar), but there is a sextant add-on for that one, if you weren't aware. I've used it to re-create several historic flights, including the first journey of the China Clipper. It still amazes me that the world in flight sim is modeled so accurately that real world dead reckoning calculations and position plotting work in the sim.
