Bug: Flight planning picks terrible routes. Apparently these guys do the planning
How to Recreate This Problem:
- Plan a route between KSAC and KMRY.
1a) Use resonable values, altitude 000-010, type C-172 with defaults
- A list of flight plans is produced.
3a) BUG: Two of the options are patently absurd.
3b) BUG: One of the options is only ever given to aircraft above ~ 10K feet.
3c) BUG: The only route I have ever received under 10K feet is not on the list (KSAC ECA V585 PATYY V111 SNS KMRY).

(Those with the full history on this plane will see numerous trips with the same routing).
a) The “FROGO MOD SNS” is (maybe) offered, although as it’s usually a high altitude route and entered low altitude, I would put it at the bottom of the list if at all.
b) The “long path” results are not offered
c) The low altitude routes are offered.
