Does anyone know anything about converting WGS-84 coordinates to
distances in metres?

You can check the results with Great Circle calculators on the net.
But for authorative information, you should look at:
sci.geo.satellite-nav (probably though Deja News - there's a lot of
history on this).

I saw the answer to this question in one of the (real) pilot magazines
but must have thrown it out; hope someone here can help.
Given Lat/Long values how can I compute the course and the distance
between two points? This is for flight planning across the Atlantic:
56N10W - 55N20W - 54N30W and so on ... I know it's spherical trig and
involves lots of Arctans and what not.
