Sorry for necro, but just wanted to link this post by Saiket:
He had a lot of info on this, how I see it it's a lot of work, I too have some prototype lying on my drive somewhere, but it's definitely doable, making a program to read from the game data files and produce a lua file that contains the required information so that the game may generate a very accurate estimation on how long the flight will take. Doable but takes some dedication, with a lot of more researching. Latency, the speed attribute and path joining issues must be accounted for before accurate estimations can be produced.
