Latest gem updates
I made a few updates to some of my gems recently and here's a brief overview:

qnh_in(set QNH in inches Hg)
qnh_mb(set QNH in milibars/hectopascals)
Vfor VFR, etc)
More importantly, this library now plays nicely with gcmapper. A new attribute is provided for the pilot stations:
.gcmap which returns a great circle map image url, depicting the GC route of the aircraft, its origin and destination, its current position on the route, together with its current altitude and groundspeed.

icao.vatsim_online[:pilots].first.gcmap #=> image url of the map
The gcmapper gem is updated for compatibility with
vatsim_online. No user-facing changes here.

airport_id. Remember you can always override the default ordering by using Active Record's
