Summary0000276: In VFR flight mode the waypoint skipping should be not active
DescriptionIn IFR mode the automatic wayppoint skipping is useful and very good, however, in VFR mode no waypoints should be skipped, even they mean some "diversion", as in most cases that planning is done on purpose. Following are some reaons:

- as usually VFR flights are done at low altitudes, you specifically might choose certain waypoints in order to avoid high terrain
- in VFR flight you want to see a certain location and therefore overfly it
- when planning the VFR flight you prepare (visual) reference points and keep your flight log based in passing/reaching them

Below please find two specific examples. In both cases the plugin skipped the chosen waypoint.
Steps To ReproduceLogfile entries / Screenshot 1 (TESEL should not be skipped)
124thATC v2.0-a56rc2 21:28:23 : Waypoint switch cause: lost fix. Old navigation point 0 TESEL
124thATC v2.0-a56rc2 21:28:23 : Speed: 46, headingDifferenceNext: 149.90
124thATC v2.0-a56rc2 21:28:23 : Next navigation point: 1 ODULA ... Lat: 28.245277 Lon: -17.115557

Logfile entries / Screenshot 2 (ERDIP should not be skipped)
124thATC v2.0-a56rc2 20:30:19 : Waypoint switch cause: lost fix. Old navigation point 0 ERDIP
124thATC v2.0-a56rc2 20:30:19 : Speed: 50, headingDifferenceNext: 161.68
124thATC v2.0-a56rc2 20:30:19 : Next navigation point: 1 OKTIB ... Lat: -21.089443 Lon: 55.120167
Additional InformationIn both cases the waypoints were selected in order to avoid overflying the high terrain on the islands.
