Flight Planning Problem


Recommended Posts

Do any of the smarter kids in cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts] know if there is a way to plug in Victor and Jet routes in FS9 Flight Planner??? Naturally, many FAA preferred routes contain a combination of waypoints, jet routes, vor's, and Victor routes. Sure would like to get an answer to this. Ive got the PMDG 737NG on order and the FMS may solve this problem, but there are many other planes that do not have that wonderful gadget. Thanks, boys and girls.

I use the FS9 planner a lot, and actually it already has all the airways you need. The only thing is you cannot set the route to an airway, just to any intersections/VORs/NDBs on it. All you have to do is click and drag the red route indicator line to one of the objects on the airway and it will place your route directly on it. Just be warned though that a lot of the intersections on current SIDs/STARs are not on the FS9 planner because it is extremely outdated. I am looking for a way to add intersections/objects to it, but haven't figured that out yet. I bet there's a way though...

As you guessed, the FMS will do this for you on the PMDG. Just put in the airway that you are using on the "Via" section of the route.

 

Also- I'd like to second Craig's suggestion of Simroutes. If the route that you want isn't there, you can use the route generator feature (including the intersections on DP's and STAR's if you like), and then download the flightplan in FS9 format. Then, you can load it up into the default GPS just like any other flightplan. It works like a charm. I use this very often when I'm flying an airliner without an FMS.

 

Hope that helps somewhat.
