International Flight Duration Calculator?

I am considering booking a non-stop flight from Toronto Canada to various destinations like Tokyo, Bangkok or Hong Kong and my question is this...

I was doing a little research on flight schedules and I see the flight departure and arrival times but I have no idea of the actual time in the air due to all the timezones, is there a flight-time calculator website where one could go and input the two airports and get the approximate flight time?

Just Wondering,

I don't know, but when you look up flights on most sites it tells you the duration of each flight along with the total duration including connection times.

This is more designed for pilots etc., but it might be useful to give you an idea.

You will need to know the average speed of the aircraft, but there is a default of 460kt which should be good enough to give you an idea

Well...I'm a little red faced...

I was only looking at discount wholesale websites which did not provide alot of flight details. I then checked the flights I was interested in with the airlines directly and presto, out pops the flight duration info.

Thanks again to all that posted,

You might also consider downloading software such as this one:

Symmtime lets you set up any number of clocks on your computer desktop for various cities worldwide. A fantastic bit of easy-to-use freeware that I have used for several years. If you know the departure and arrival times you should be able to calculate flight times easily.

Dale, they do it on the travel sites too (Expedia, Travelocity), but sometimes you have to go farther into the booking process for it to show up, and other times it's in small print.
