What are these RTEs in and out of San Juan? How do I program my default FSX flight planner with waypoints and/or my ISG1 FMC?

 

For example:

 

KMIA - TJSF - last entry in flight plan: RTE6 (SKIPS1 SKIPS BR53V RAJAY A555 ZQA A555 GTK A555 HARDE A555 IDAHO RTE6)

TJSJ - TIST - preferred route: RTE2

same as airways. you enter them into the FMC the same as you would an airway. theyll also be listed in nav charts and the gps as airways. just different names to them then the normal Jet or Victor airways. youll find a lot of different names to them as you fly more outside of the US. youll even find some with single designators like "P191" (not sure if thats an actual airway, just an example of what itd look like)

 

youll find a lot in the caribbean like that. for exame BR51V to N[Mod - Happy Thoughts]au from Miami (can be joined at SKIPS) is pronounced "Bahama Route 51 Victor"

RTE2 is not a waypoint is an airway. to use it you will need enter RTE2 on the left soft key of your point and then the destination point. Airways go on the left side of the FMC waypoints go on the right side of the FMC.

 

Now if you are not using an FMC, you will need to type RTE2 point by point. A program that will help you build plans and export them to FSX is FSBuild. It cost money but its worth it. I am not aware of freeware that will do the same.

 

In SJU you will see plans ending in RTE2 or 6 or whatever because planes are vectored in to ILS or the visuals.

Juan,

 

Yes, I understand that RTE2 is an airway and not a waypoint. When I try to enter RTE2, for example, on the left side in my ISG1 FMC, it displays "invalid entry." It doesn't matter which RTE(+#) I try to enter. To make it clear, I am not entering them on the right side where I enter a waypoint.

its probably just the ISG fmc not taking it right. altho i couldnt find any posts in the ISG forum of others having similar issues with these.

 

can you post a screenshot of how you are entering it? maybe you are trying to join it from a waypoint that isnt on the airway so its not able to find it.

 

also make sure the waypoint is the correct one if multiple waypoints are found, there may be multiple waypoints with the same name in different parts of the world. happens

Well, SKIPS1 SKIPS BR53V RAJAY A555 ZQA A555 GTK A555 HARDE A555 IDAHO RTE6, is a RW route from Flightaware and it didn't have SJU at the end of the route, however, it doesn't matter as far as the ISG! fmc. It won't accept any RTE airway. I'm still waiting for Ernie at the ISG1 forum to answer my question.

 

I've been flying around in the Caribbean with UPCVAC.com and I've just entered all the waypoints of the RTE in the default FSX flightplanner. So, I haven't even been using the ISG1 fmc.

The reason why it does not show the last WP is because of the approach they use, usually is visual, however in order for the FMC to calculate the right path of flight it must have a start point to an end point. You can pick the route and then select an approach course. You always need a WP after a route. Try RT6 to SJU and see what happens. As a suggestion, update your DB with the latest DB, most common errors are due to DB deletions and mistakes.

 

Remember, just because a route is posted 'as is' does not mean is complete.
